Mistake #6: Not Enough Variety
Whether getting stuck in the same running route, or always reaching for the same pair of dumbbells, not mixing up my workouts was another mistake. "One of the biggest mistakes that I see is people doing the same thing every time they work out," said NSCA-certified trainer Aurimas Juodka.
"They don't switch up their workout routines, they don't target different energy systems, and they don't increase their resistance, etc. Our bodies adapt pretty quickly," he said. In order to achieve results, you have to switch it up a little bit, otherwise your progress in muscle gain, weight loss, or whatever your goal is, will stop.
