Top Training Time-Wasters

  1. Light weights lots of reps: If you want to increase strength, raise your metabolic rate, and have more definition put the 2 or 5 pound DBs down.  Failure or fatique should come at no more than 15 reps
  2. Failing to Plan:Make a list of 8 to 12 exercise so you don’t wander around the gym.
  3. Poor Form
  4. Too much resting: No more than 30 to 90 seconds between sets
  5. Social butterfly: Partner is great but make sure your attention in on the training not chatting.
  6. In a rut:  Change up routine
  7. Reading or watching TV: Preoccupy your mind by reading or TV is fun, but chances are you are not putting in your hardest effort.   Focus and push harder.
  8. Muscle isolation: Bicep curls or leg curls are isolators.  Perform exercises that use many muscles such as pushups, DB rows, Squats.
