Developing muscles and growing big is not just about being at the gym every day while you are there you need to nail every rep and every set but this does not always happen. Sure one off day is normal but if that happens on a regular basis it is time for you to tighten the loose ends. So without any further time wasting I give to you 6 reasons your day at the gym sucked and what you can do about it.
You lack concentration
Let’s be honest how many of you were busy replying to your what’s app messages or checking out your Facebook notifications or simply could not get your eyes off the hot girl next to you while working out?
Well if you lack concentration you are bound to have a bad day. Get your mind-set right. Keep away the distractions such as your mobile and concentrate on each rep equally to keep the blood flowing and the heart pumping.
Your diet is poor
Are you concentrating too much on proteins and ignoring fats and carbs? Your diet needs a proper balance of all nutrients and vitamins. A shift in balance can leave you feeling tired and exhausted too early into your workout.
On the other hand a good balanced diet will help you perform better. So get your daily ratios right and keep track of what you consume.
You sleep less
Did you sleep a maximum of 6-8 hours before your gym session today? If not lack of sleep is your problem and a single sleepless night is enough to ruin your upcoming workouts.
If you haven’t slept well my suggestion would be you skip the gym for a day. A bad workout is worse than no workout.
You change nothing
If you are too religiously following your workout routine i.e. doing the same reps, sets and lifting the same weight each day your simply boring your muscles. In other words you’ve entered a rut and that’s why your workouts suck.
To get out of it you need to once again start challenging yourself. So stop being a lazy bum, try new workouts, lift more weights and keep yourself both mentally and physically fit.
You are consuming the wrong supplements
There was a time when the term supplements meant snake oil but nowadays better supplements such as creatine, BCAA etc. can be bought from pretty much every health and food store and it is upto you to make the most of them.
A blend of the right diet and supplements will give you a much needed boost and help you make the most of the time you spend at the gym. You can get in touch with me or your trainer to know what supplements best suit your routine.
