If your home workouts routine isn’t producing the results you
want I’m going to reveal the 5 most common home workout mistakes.
I’m going to share 5 reasons why you’re not getting the results
you want from your home workouts and how to easily fix each one
so you can get on the fast track to achieving your fitness goals quickly.
Not all need to apply to you, but each one that does makes it
harder for you to achieve your fitness goals.
|So here the top 5 home workout mistakes to avoid list|
5 Reasons Why Your Home Workouts Program Isn’t Working
1-Doing too much Cardio
You’re doing too much cardio in your “fat burning zone”- If
you’re trying to lose weight, inches, and stubborn body fat then
your goal is to burn as many calories as you can in a 24 hour period.
I’ll admit there are some benefits to performing some cardio in
your “fat burning zone” but if you think that about it, the more
of this sort of cardio you are doing, the more efficient your
body becomes and the fewer calories it burns.
That’s the opposite of what you’re trying to do isn’t it? On top
of that, it’s just plain boring and you can make better use of
your home fitness routine by performing higher intensity
intervals and full-body resistance training workouts can burn
more calories both during and after the workout.
You can easily create a highly effective home workouts program
using dumbbells, a medicine ball, resistance bands and your own
2-Including Light Weights
Your home workouts routine includes too many light weight
exercises- There is this old myth about how light weight
exercises can help tone and sculpt lean muscles and that if you
lift heavier weights you’ll develop big “bulky” muscles. All of
this is absolute nonsense!
The plain and straightforward truth is that if you don’t
challenge your muscles to figure harder then they’re wont
to your body will more easily burn muscle instead of fat for
The more lean muscle you have the more calories you burn and the
leaner you become and vice-versa. If you burn muscle
you’re getting to ultimately hamper your metabolism making it
easier for you to realize body fat.
Instead, your home fitness program should involve resistance
based exercises that challenge you to finish 8-10 repetitions.
You won’t “bulk up” but you’ll develop those lean muscles you’ve
3-Never changing Home Workout Routines
Your home workouts routine never changes- After a few of the
same workouts your body gets used to the same routine and adapts
by expending less energy which makes it harder to change your
Instead, change up your home workouts routine every time you
train. You can change the exercises, order of exercises,
reps, what proportion weight you employ, rest periods, etc…
You’re focusing on how much weight you lose- This is one of
the biggest mistakes I see people make on a daily basis. Let me
ask you this…If you had the body such as you see on an anatomy
chart would you care what proportion you weigh?
Your body weight doesn’t tell you how much fat you carry.
So, you’ll reduce by losing lots of muscles and still not look
the way you would like or fit into the clothes you would like.
Instead, your home workouts routine should be designed to burn
body fat rather than just losing weight. As you lose the fat
you’ll start getting leaner and looking toned.
4-Eating too much
You’re eating too much- The problem with obesity in America
isn’t because we eat carbohydrates or fat, it’s because we eat
too much period! The bottom line is that if you eat more
calories than you burn you’re gonna gain weight no matter what.
From Susan: 100% agreed. In fact, I think this is the #1 reason
why you are overweight!
Do you actually need to figure your butt off training only to
mess it all up by over eating? That’s a sure fire way to make
sure you never see results from your home workouts routine.
Instead, try keeping track of what you eat for five days during
a food journal. Then add up the total calories and divide that
number by 5.
At the end of the 5 days weigh yourself. If your body weight is
the same then you know how many calories you need per day to
maintain your current weight. If you gained weight you’re over
Make slight adjustments as needed to reach your desired fitness
goal. For example, if you want to lose weight and you gained a
pound in the last 5 days you’ll need to reduce the number of
calories you consume each day by say, 300-500.

5-Not Including Healthy Balance
You’re not including a healthy balance of carbohydrates and
fats in your diet-If you believe you need to go on some kind of
low carbohydrate or low fat diet I have some interesting news
There’s a reason carbohydrates and fats exist and that’s because
your body needs them. Carbohydrates and fats provide the
most source of energy during your home workouts and other
Also, most low-carbohydrate and low fat diets are too
difficult to stay with over the long-term.
