Common mistakes in sports training

Often, when we begin to train we are over enthusiastic and lose sight of some basic aspects that help us to progress and avoid injury or overuse our body.

Here are some common mistakes in sport training:

We often wish to see results quickly but it is always wiser to make fewer errors that will not affect our training value. Perhaps the most common and trivial mistake is not drinking enough water.

It is absolutely necessary to drink some water before, during and after training to compensate for loss of minerals through sweating.


Always, always warm up before starting your workout! You will cause some serious injury, if you do not.

To have a slim and toned body does not mean a single workout. Modify your routine exercises and weights; this will certainly bring you closer to your goals.

We should not neglect training certain parts of the body. When a muscle group is constantly avoided, its development will suffer.

Do not train to exhaustion if you do not complete your reps. Here’s why: on the one hand you are over-training and on the other muscles soreness, which often discourages beginners. Remember! Muscles do not grow during exercise, but when the body is rested and fed properly, so it is necessary to adopt a healthy lifestyle otherwise the results will be a lot slower.

Socializing in the gym, telephoning or taking long breaks between sets will not help define your physique.

For visible results, it is vital to have an effective workout plan and a realistic time plan depending on your goal and build.


Amateurs will tell you lifting maximum weights will not affect your joints and that you will execute your exercises better, another common error. Most people will not pay too much attention on the importance of exercising correctly and safely but to put on a show in front of others. Most often, the wrong exercises are not effective and lead to injury.

Will you bear in mind these principles when you next to the gym?
