Common Strength Training Mistakes

Los Angeles, CA – 2/17/2014

One of the most important components of anyphysical movement is proper form. Without proper form, injury can happen and the body will not achieve themaximum output from the movement, leading to decreased results from theirfitness program.  In strengthtraining, it’s easy to make mistakes in posture, performance, and trainingfocus.  In order to avoid mistakes,we must first be aware of what common ones are in order to correct them beforethey start.

Weight lifting exercises involve opposinggravity by moving resistance (the weights) vertically up and down to buildmovement.  In reality, however, thebody twists and moves from side to side in addition to up and down.  Be sure when adding weight lifting orresistance training exercises to a workout to incorporate all over bodymovement for full-body training results.

In addition to making sure the body isrotating and working side to side, another mistake often made during trainingis never changing speed.  Yes, slowand steady wins the race so to speak, but working at different rates of speedor different momentums can increase overall function of the muscles and trainthe body to adapt to rapid changes in movement to protect from injury andincrease speed and performance.

We must be cautious with changing rates ofspeed and resistance, but we must also be cautious about staying the same.  Another mistake commonly made is neverincreasing resistance or amount of weight being lifted during training.  A common fear, especially among women,is an increase in bulk.  This is anunnecessary concern as it is very difficult to grow bulky muscles withoutadditional supplements and intense training.  Be sure to increase weights when necessary to keepchallenging the body and increase strength overall.

Paying attention to these common mistakeswill challenge the body and keep a workout interesting while a person sees anincrease in overall results in their fitness training goals.
