5 Bad Habits that Could be Sabotaging Your Workout

Posted: Updated:
Have you been hitting the gym or the outdoor trails all summer but haven't gotten the results you wanted?   It is possible you've developed some bad exercise habits that you may not even know about.

Daily Burn came up with a list of bad habits at the gym:

Number one -- not warming up.  If you don't do it, your chance of injury goes up and you decrease how effective your workout will be. 

Second -- make sure you eat enough for recovery.  To gain muscle, you need fuel.  If you're trying to lose weight, make sure you are eating a healthy diet

Number three -- don't train too long or too often.  The recommended workout is 45-55 minutes tops and your body needs a day for recovery. 

Four -- make sure you're getting enough sleep. 

The fifth bad habit to watch out for -- copying other people as they work out.  One trainer says "monkey see, monkey do" just doesn't work because you may not be trained on how to do it and could hurt yourself.
