Misunderstanding what "light weight for high reps" really is. 15 reps of DB curls with 80 pound DBs will likely beef up your arms, 15 reps @ 20 pounds won't do a whole lot.

Take home point: You need to be strong enough to move good weight before your body will want to put on more muscle to move it more times.

1. Not doing there research, research, research on nutrition and the human body. Whith out this you have no idea why you are eating and w/o the way you are. Your walking blind.

2. Not keeping logs.

I'll help you out. Heres your first piece of body research.

Ditto to what Rich said about Not keeping a log or journal, it very key IMHO!!!
Also, not following or having a program to follow. One of my high school female clients was training chest 3 times a week, because her older brother told her to!!!

I'm still learning but I always thought that you really could get big with just standard bicep curls. I know now I am wrong.

I noticed a lot of guys were more interested in lifting heavy than correcting their form.

I think form should be the major concern in the beginning. Once thats been mastered, concentrate on adding weight.
