So if you start to feel defensive about something I’m saying remember this is not about you This is about your friend. So, don’t worry. Don’t worry Okay, let’s just get into these mistakes because listen 20 20. So let’s talk about it.
I’m just gonna go through this really fast So keep up. Yeah, keep up. You got to keep up number one You don’t have a cheat day in your schedule if you are doing my premium workout schedule I have a spot on the schedule for you to write down your cheat day This is not a game do not try to be Rambo does not try to be a hero Everybody needs a cheat day.
The day where you go ham the day where you just do all the bad stuff that you want to hide from your personal trainer If you do not have a cheat day Scheduled this might be one of the reasons.
It’s so hard for you to stay away from sweets. I have a cheat day Thursday’s usually my cheat day, and that’s the day that I look forward to every day of the week mistake Number two, you do not keep your basic exercise equipment in a visible place.
Listen, my kettlebell is always visible I see it every day doesn’t mean I use it every day But I see it every day My ankle weights my dumbbells my exercise mat my workout shoes my treadmill all these things They are in places where I see them every day if you don’t see your exercise stuff Guess what?
You’re never gonna use your exercise stuff. I’m sorry. Not you your friend mistake number three your friend keeps avoiding planks anytime She sees planks in a workout. She just sits out. She doesn’t do it at all.
Listen. It’s okay if you can’t it’s okay She can plank for only three seconds. It’s okay She can plan for only five seconds, but she’s got to play. She has to do the planks.
The planks are not Optional the plants are the thing that makes your waist net The planks are the thing that makes your abs show the plants are the thing that supports your back So that way you’re a grandma you can still be like a sexy grandma mistake number four.
She hates her workouts She doesn’t want to do it. Listen If you hate your workout fine And you work out that you like this is why I have hundreds of workout videos in my app so that you can find a workout that you love and you want to repeat and you want to do and you wake up in the morning as I get to workout actually nobody does that nobody wakes up in the morning like I get to work out this next mistake is one.
That’s really gonna trigger your friend so I really need you to like hold her hand as I say this because It’s not very popular. It’s fast. It’s the truth.
I’m gonna say it just one time Here goes if your friend has 30 or more pounds to lose and she is out in the gym lifting heavy weights She’s making a massive mistake Weight training is not bad anyone that has 30 or more pounds to lose is not a great candidate for lifting heavyweights in the gym if your friend is In that situation she needs to focus on cleaning up her diet and doing bodyweight exercises Consistently in order to lose that weight. It’s all love and anything.
I say I’m saying from a place of love mistake number 6 She’s always on a diet. I’m not gonna say more than that just don’t be constantly on a diet mistake number 7, not foam rolling. I have an entire video actually It’s only available to my premium members, but you can start this anywhere online foam rolling is key if she’s not foam rolling Stop she needs to foam roll mistake number eight when it’s time to eat lean protein is a struggle if your friend is struggling to Get her lean protein in that is a problem.
Fatty protein is good Lean protein is good carbs are good fat is good. Vegetables are good a little bit of everything is good Unless your doctor says not to eat certain things then in that case just ignore that point mistake Number nine is the all-or-nothing mindset.
This is one that’s really huge that a lot of people struggle with They can’t work out because they ate cake last night just because you ate something that you feel you shouldn’t have eaten doesn’t mean you Shouldn’t work out just because you don’t have 30 minutes to work out doesn’t mean you shouldn’t work out even if it’s just five minutes.
Five minutes is better than no minute to do it It may not feel like the best but long-term you’re gonna be proud of yourself I struggled with that in the past you feel like if I didn’t do like the hardest workout like go hard for a long time.
That shouldn’t do anything but over time I haven’t matured I’ve grown I’m a better person now and I want your friends to be a better person, too Mistake number ten is not wearing proper shoes. If the bottom of your shoes is smooth.
I just got these new from Under Armor I don’t like them very much. So I’m gonna go find a new pair somebody recommended some sketches I’m gonna go to the sketcher store tomorrow to see if I can find something that I like But honestly you guys take care of your feet.
If you’ve been using the same workout shoes for seven years I’m sorry if your friend has been using the same workout shoes for seven years Tell her to buy some new ones mistake number 11 is taking too many supplements are fun So I’m not gonna say don’t take supplements.
They’re fun But just make sure that you’re not overdoing it with the supplements because sometimes they can be a crutch Mistake number 12 is stretching at the beginning of workouts instead of stretching at the end If you’re doing my workouts, you’re already covered.
You don’t have to think about that But just in case you’re not doing my workout and your friend sent this to you hi friend then you know tip for you mistake number 13 doing hairstyles that stop you from working out you guys I Never thought this would happen to me, but it happened to me. There was a day I wanted to work out But I was like BAM.
I cannot work out because of my hair my hair is Looking too cute to be doing sit-ups and crunches and I’m not sweating. I’ve done that or like my hair looks rough And so I’m just not in the good mood cuz my hair doesn’t look good and then so because I’m not in a good mood.
I’m not gonna work out ladies 2020 I’m so passionate about this one because guys I know how it is when your hair is not done You just don’t feel right So you don’t feel okay mistake number fourteen trying to flatten your abs and grow your booty at the same time.
I’m not gonna say more than that because I have another video where I rant about this so go watch that video Mistake number 15 you are comparing yourself to Internet models, don’t do it this doesn’t do it compare yourself to your grandma.
Your friend is trying to do all the most complicated Exercises when in reality usually it’s the super simple exercises that are the most effective You know, why because you know how to do them?
So if you don’t know how to do the exercise and you’re like confused and you’re out here like trying to figure out where to put your leg the whole time instead of just doing the basic squat or The basic plank we’re leaving that behind we’re not taking that into 2020 Not telling your friends and family what you’re doing trying to be fit in secret.
This is a very challenging one actually This one really depends on your family because some family members you tell them you’re trying to be healthy and then they start bringing you Burger King at Midnight.
I have some family members like that. You’re blessed to have a supportive family then, you know, tell them what you’re doing Don’t be eating broccoli in the closet next mistake.
It’s focusing on only how you look and also how you feel I’m not gonna sit here and be like, oh, I don’t care how I look it’s all about the inner feeling That’s not true for me I care about how I look I care about how I feel I care about how I think I care about everything okay,
so I get you guys if you’re like My stomach is looking funny or all my booty is looking weird or my thighs are doing this and my arms are doing that I’m not gonna sit here and tell you not to care about those things when I know that I care about it, too And you gotta also care about how you feel you keep checking your weight Every day.
Let me adjust myself because the need to every day you be Every day, you’ll be checking your weight. I’m not against checking your way. I’m not saying throughout your scale but if it’s an addiction We’re not doing down in 2020.
if it works for you do it if it doesn’t work for you if it’s making you crazy Let it go let it go Why does every song end with who I think I’m gonna write a blog post very soon about like different ways to track your progress Other than checking your weight.
I feel like this is something that would be helpful because a lot of us trainers these days It’s so trendy to say Oh throughout the scale. Stop checking your weight.
