7 Reasons Why You’re Not Making Gains


7 Reasons Why You’re Not Making Gains

It’s January 2014, and I’ve been seeing a lot of newbs in the gym. I assume it’s because this time of year, a lot of people set fitness goals. The problem is: Most people don’t see results the first few months and their goals just go to Hell.

There are a lot of reasons why people don’t accomplish their fitness goals. In the video below, I’m going to give you the top 7 reasons why people aren’t making gains:

  1. Lack of plan: Have a destination and a plan. Set a goal and get there. Follow a routine. A few are: P90X, Insanity, Texas Method. Any routine is better than random exercises. Follow something strictly for 12 weeks and you’ll make gains!
  2. Inconsistency: Not working out, sleeping, drinking water consistently. Squeeze as much success as you can in each day. Squeeze the life out of each day! Try keeping a log of everything you do each day: work out, water intake, sleep, food, etc.
  3. Not timing rests between sets: Rest 3 to 5 minutes between each set to gain strength. To gain muscle, rest 1 to 2 minutes between sets. If your primary goal is burning fat, rest only 30 seconds between. If you are not timing your rest between sets, then your workout is just a gotdamn joke.
  4. Not sleeping enough: Sleep is so important! Get around 8 hours a night. If you’re not sleeping enough each night, you’re wasting your time with exercise and eating right.
  5. Not taking supplements: You don’t need supplements. Supplements add to your diet. Sometimes it’s hard to get the nutrients, like protein, you need in your diet to gain muscle or get the results you desire. Supplement your diet with a multi-vitamin or protein powder. Supplements help!
  6. Bad form: Perfect form isolates the muscle. Don’t expect to get great results from bad form. If you’re going to do an exercise, do it correctly.
  7. Working out like a little hoe: If you want to see results, you have to put in the work and you have to work HARD! Making dramatic changes in any area of life is going to take a lot of hard work. Do not aproch your goals timidly. Go all out and hold nothing back. If you are going to shoot, make sure you empty the clip.
