"15 Reasons You're Not Getting Results In The Gym" Review

It's 2 months after NYE and you're probably frustrated with your results in the gym (or lack of). Besides hiring a personal trainer in Chicago :) to amp up your fitness sessions, you may want to take a look at these 9 reasons why and reshape your approach to exercise (from the article "15 Reasons You're Not Getting Results In The Gym"). Create the best you in 2016-It's still early!

NOT GIVING IT YOUR ALL AT THE GYM


You're not even there in spirit. You might show up and execute all sets and reps, but you're doing it without any attempt to improve since your last workout.

AVOIDING MUSCLE GROUPS


You choose your favorite muscle groups and then fail to do the ones you don't enjoy doing, usually by procrastinating them into Sunday. And then you say, "Oh well, I'll start fresh on Monday." But on Monday you don't start with the muscle groups you neglected, and work your favorite ones again, resulting in complete lack of stimulation of your weak spots for weeks.

GOING TO THE GYM AT PEAK HOURS


You go work out at the happy hour time when everyone else is working out. You do this subconsciously so you have an excuse to avoid the compound moves since everyone is doing them, and the racks where you perform those compound moves are busy.

YOU'RE WAITING TOO LONG BETWEEN SETS


You don't time yourself between sets, so they end up being 5-minutes long and you're not a powerlifter trying to max out on singles. Then at 45-minutes into your workout, you've got to go, and you've only done 10 sets.

YOU ONLY WORKOUT WHEN YOU FEEL LIKE IT


You allow yourself to exercise only when you're in the mood for it, but sadly you're not in the mood that often.

YOU DON'T PRIORITIZE WEIGHT TRAINING


You get wasted on cardio when you're trying to lean up the meat on those wheels.

YOU’RE LIFTING TOO LIGHT


How do you know it's too light? You're not worried that if you lose focus you'll get hurt. If you're not getting hurt when you lose focus it's not a heavy enough weight.

YOU'RE LIFTING TOO HEAVY


You're doing half reps, and fail to do more than two reps when the set is supposed to be hypertrophic around 10. But your ego says, "Keep trying and some day you'll make 10." Yes, but in the meantime, pick a pair of bells you can actually handle!

YOU BLAME GENETICS FOR WHY YOU'RE NOT GETTING RESULTS


You are convinced that all buff physiques are a result of excellent genetics. This translates to a perfect reason for you to not try and make the best out of what you've got, and hence you're completely missing out on maximizing your potential.

What do you think are the reasons for your lack of success in the gym?
