Why do I want this body? Weight gain or weight loss? Bulk or lean muscle gains? If you do not know why you are in the gym, your fitness journey will not last. So, you need to make clear your goals and write them out. Doing this has a lot to do with the mind, your diet, routine and others.

Mistake 2: No Clear and realistic Schedule

Consistency is the main ingredient here but to do this, you need a workable schedule. Ask yourself these questions, how many days in a week can I workout?, How many minutes to hours do I have to share each day?, etc. Once you have answered these and more, you are good to go. You have a fixed schedule, stick to it.

 

Mistake 3: Having a poor diet.

Depending on the goal of the fitness journey whether it is to lose, gain or maintain weight; diet is very important. But, many people lack this and it affects their fitness goals.

For weight loss, calorie deficit is advisable- you need to walk less than required amount daily while working out; weight gain has room for eating more calories than your body burns daily while also accounting for calories lost during workout. Above all, having a poor diet will amount to getting bad results over a period of time while working out. Each fitness plan has a specific diet. Know yours and stick to it.

This final mistake for this section is main cause of frustration for many people who are on a fitness journey. They follow the crowd. These people do routines just because someone else is doing it.
