7 bad exercise habits you should quit asap

1. NOT DRINKING ENOUGH WATER

When your body’s water level is below normal, your physical and mental performance is likely to be affected. Besides common side effects such as headaches and dry lips, you may feel more fatigued than usual which may impact your performance in exercise. Drink up!


2. NOT EATING ENOUGH FOOD

Food is energy, food is fuel. If the body isn’t fueled properly it will often impact both performance and results. When you’re under-eating it may feel like you’re training intensely, even when your efficiency is quite low. The result may be slower progress and less motivation.


3. NOT GETTING ENOUGH SLEEP

Tiredness, poor concentration, poor form, increased pain reception, and slower muscle growth and recovery – the negative effects of lack of the ZZ ’s are endless. Prioritizing sleep at night is like thanking your body for putting up with your crazy adventures during the day.


4. NOT TAKING REST DAYS

The more you do it the faster you’ll reach your goal, but the more you overdo it the slower you’ll reach your goal. Even though we may be ready mentally, our muscles and joints need time to rebuild the tiny tears that we create when exercising. Rest and recovery is as important as the workout itself.


5. SKIPPING WARM-UPS

We all did it at least once, even though we know skipping warm-ups before exercise can be harmful and can increase the risk of injuries (hello potential muscle strains and tears!). By warming up your muscles you’re priming them to do their job more efficiently, which may lead you to perform even better!


6. BEING IMPATIENT

Exercising and setting goals with unreasonable expectations is a sure way to lose motivation, get injured, or even worse: both. It’s like trying to learn a new language and getting frustrated about not being fluent after a month. Progress takes time and an active lifestyle is a long-term, continual process. There’s no rush.


7. FOLLOWING BAD ADVICE BLINDLY

There’s a lot of misinformation on the internet (duh!). Be careful with who you trust and please consider researching everything related to your health and fitness to avoid wasting your time or hurting yourself. Just because some influencer told you to exercise on 1 hour of sleep and 2 days of fasting for maximum fat loss doesn’t mean it’s the truth, right? Our final advice: Question everything.
