How many people work out to get a great muscular physique ? But how many of them have actually succeeded eventually ? The answer is – just a small percent of all the people who start working out, achieve the goal of getting their dream physique.
Why does this happen? The main answer is that people usually develop a number of habits that kill their progress over time. Here are some of them.
Insecurity and fear of failure
Failure is just one of the many steps on your road to success. The fact is, you learn by making mistakes. Don’t be afraid of trying new things, new techniques, exercises, supplements, foods. This is the way you can see what works and what doesn’t work for you.
You need to have more confidence in yourself as this is the only way you can find the ability to push yourself harder and find motivation to keep going. Remember, nothing is impossible if you are willing to work hard, there are only different roads that lead to the success.
Looking for “The truth”
Everyone that starts this sport seeks the truth, what routine, split or exercises “work best” and what will get you on the right track fast.
On the other hand, every “guru” out there claims there is a “secret” for building a muscular and ripped physique. And guess what – you’ll hear hundreds of different “secrets” that will make your head spin.
The truth is – everything works, you just have to find out what works for you. Don’t copy Jay Cutler’s diet or Phil Heath’s workout routine just because you read about them in some magazine. Those are unique workout and diet plans that work just for Jay and Phil.
Too much information
They say that knowledge is power. The more you know and understand the more successful you will be. With today’s technology, the internet and books it’s a jungle full of information regarding fitness and bodybuilding (some good, some bad).
Reading too much information can also be a bad thing. This is when you spend so much time thinking about a problem that you lose the ability to act; basically over-thinking and over-analyzing.
