Not maximizing every set.
I've really come to embrace these two recently.
Also, it's damn hard to truely over-train, now overreaching is possible, but assuming you build up work capacity, it typically comes down to a caloric/sleep issue IMO.

Getting too worried about the specifics: meal timing, supplements, obscure training techniques, finding the "perfect workout"

At the expense of the basics: consistency, progression, recovery, the big 3.

Also, impatience.

You keep getting distracted by your tampon string hanging out while looking in the mirror during squat and dead lift sets.

You're a half repper.
Your workout came from muscle and fitness.
Your supplement knowledge came from muscle and fitness.
You focus on chest and biceps.
You don't know what good form is on the big 3.
You don't have a system of progression.
You use the gym as a social network.
You use the gym as a dating site.
You think of food as "food" and not fuel and nutrients.
You think you can be as big as the guys in muscle and fitness.
You believe so-and-so's workout will work for you because so-and-so is huge.
You spet more than $15 on creatine monohydrate.
You leg press 1000lb but can't squat 225.

You believe there's a difference between proteins.
You haven't changed your diet.
You're using a protein supplement but you haven't changed your diet.
You're using a mass gainer but haven't changed your diet.
You're using a fat burner but haven't changed your diet.
You're training for a six pack but you haven't changed your diet.
Seeing a pattern here?
You're a beginning lifter using a four day split.
You're a beginning lifter using a three day split.
You don't use low reps because you don't want to get bulky.

You think your already the biggest guy around.

Sorry but just because you look big while wearing an extra small t-shirt doesn't mean you have tons of muscle.

Following a "cookie cutter" program that may not be the right program for you.

The internet is full of programs that claim to be "the best" or proclaim some magical results, but not everyone is going to respond the same.

Program templates are just that...templates. They CAN be adjusted to meet individual needs and goals.
