8 Common Mistakes Smart Athletes Need to Avoid

Are you making any of these mistakes and slowing down your progress?

3. Doing everything at once

While being enthusiastic about lifting heavy weights and doing as many reps as possible is good, you need to remind yourself to take one step at a time. You need to learn the technique properly before working on the weight. A solid base is mandatory for your process. It’s especially important to avoid injuries.

Beginner classes are the perfect way to learn the foundation of the movements. Starting with a pvc pipe or just a light weight makes it possible to concentrate on your movements. Improving your health is the biggest goal of Crossfit, risking injuries can end very painfully and hold you back from your progress.

4. A poor diet

Nutrition is very important for your body transformation, fitness, emotional health (being hangry sound familiar?) and has a huge impact on your training progress. Improving your health for the rest of your life is not only reached by training, your diet is always part of it. You will get the most out of your training when you minimize carbohydrates and sugar. But you should also take care to eat enough! Make sure you eat what’s healthy and what supports your training in order to achieve your goals.
