Are you getting the best workout you possibly can? If you’re making any of these mistakes, STOP now!
1.Not Allowing Rest Days
If you feel like you should be doing your HIIT routine every day, remember your rest days are those that your muscles grow stronger. Take the time to chill out.
2.You Reward Yourself With Empty Calories
Whether you drink or chew your “well earned” treats, seriously consider your post-workout goodies. If they’re full of empty calories or you have a bit too much of them, you’re really defeating the purpose of working out.
3.You’re Not Mixing It Up
Switch it up … and your body will respond appropriately. If you always do the same routine, your body responds accordingly. It knows what to expect, and that can limit the caloric burn.
5.Are You Underestimating Your Lifting Potential?
A lot of people underestimate the amount they can lift. They get complacent. For maximum benefit, learn a few lifts that work your whole body, including your core.
