not pushing your shoulder blades together when you bench.



not pushing your sternum out when you contract your back during rows, etc.

Mistake - not eating when you are hungry. Post-workout you feel ravenous for a reason, so eat!

Not encouraging and motivating yourself to educate the path in which you want to walk.

And, not examining how the basics apply to yourself:

1. Such as learning your personal calories, and how to manipulate calories and macros according your goal you desire (muscle gain/tissue loss).

2. Such as learning the basic mechanics of strength training/exercising in general, and how to manipulate the variables (sets, reps, tempo, rest between sets, progression, etc) according to your goal want, to combat personal problems encountered, and to solicit another kind of stimulus.

3. Not setting some time aside to study to learn numbers 1 and 2.


Best regards,

Chillen

Not checking your ego at the door.

No one gives a f*ck how much you think you can lift, if you can't do it properly. You end up looking like a moron trying to do more than you're capable of, not the superman you hope to be.
