💁🏽Having trained quite a lot of men throughout my career, here are my top 4 mistakes most men make at the gym:
1️⃣lifting too damn heavy.
Ok, so, this is how I explain it to my clients: in order for you to lift 'heavy' ( whatever heavy means to you), you need to own the right to do so.
Yup, you need to master the form, master the exercise in a higher rep range (let's say anywhere between 8-15), and then focus on lower rep ranges if strength is your main goal.
Going all in , rowing 100 lbs dumbbells for 3 reps with a shitty form isn't going to make you stronger, it's only going to teach your body how to lift improperly and increase risk of injuries.
2️⃣Not training legs.
You have leg muscles, train them.
Playing soccer, football, basketball isn't quite the same as strength training.
In order to create a balanced, strong, functional physique- you must train your leg muscles.
Not only that, but strengthening your leg muscles would make you a better athlete on the field.
3️⃣Training only the muscles you see- chest & biceps.
Same as the above.
Most men who train like that would have a kyphotic appearance/posture since they never payed attention to strengthening their back muscles.
For every 1 chest exercise you do , perform 2-3 back exercises (rowing mainly).
4️⃣Going into the gym with no purpose.
This is a big one. Having a good program that is effective and safe isn't about combining a bunch of random exercises, and call it a day.
Don't expect to progress like that.
When you go to the gym, have a game plan in mind, follow it, and aim to improve at every workout.
-good luck !
Finished up a solid day spent with the family finding pumpkins🎃 and ended with some booty training - the smith machine was my best friend tonight! I’m realizing more and more what time well spent is and that everyday you can start out fresh! It doesn’t have to be Monday. It doesn’t have to be a New Year. No life changing event has to occur. You have a choice. That choice is determined by your thoughts which turn into your actions. Wake up shitty and plan for a shitty day! Wake up determined, ready to conquer and you’ll most likely accomplish every single intention you envision! Your choice. Choose w i s e l y. @coach_russ_allen
Have a great night, Everyone❤️

As for tonight, I have a couple tests I have to study for so I’m off to hit the books📖
Have a wonderful Wednesday babes, we’re halfway through the week😘✨☀️
Hit an all time high on the scale at 250lbs at 6'4. I'm training my ass off. I eat pizza 3-4 nights a week, but other than that eat very clean. I keep cardio regular. I'm getting stronger everyday. Best of all - I love the life/lifting balance I currently have
Find balance and what works for you, use systematic progression, and enjoy your training. Living a "fit life" doesn't have to be all work and misery 🤙🏽 #EveryDayIGrow
