1.Accepting the fact that the aches on your body after a workout are something normal

If you get injured from working out, and it is more a norm, than an exception, this means that you are working out wrong.

This means that:

-your technique is not good;

-that the intensity is more than your abilities;

-you are lifting heavier loads than you can handle;

-you do not give your body enough rest;

-you structure your workouts wrong;

-you ignore your weaknesses, instead of finding a way to work on them and eliminate them

In the past, I used to think that is normal to have a bunch of injuries and aches on my body. I thought that having lower back pain; feeling stiff in the morning; having your knees hurt when you squat or when you climb the stairs is just the way life goes. I used to think that this is the price, you should pay in order to be physically active. It turned out that this is just the price of being ignorant. It turned out that you can be in the best shape of your life, without having pain all over your body! Actually, you can wake up and celebrate your health and the fact that you are feeling great!

2.Giving priority to “the records” in the gym, while compromising your technique

You have no idea, how often I hear somebody telling me, how when you are going for a max, i.e. chasing your PR, you can compromise with your technique.

Really? Just think how ridiculous this statement is. Do you really think that it is ok to compromise your technique, in order to lift “x” kilograms- an achievement which will satisfy the momentum needs of your ego, just to leave you with the huge risk to get injured and endure the consequences for the rest of your life. Do you really evaluate your health so cheaply? Do you really think that your health and your well-being, could be belittled to a PR in the gym, which won’t, in any way,  improve the quality of your existence?

Saying that you’ve set a record in the gym, but you’ve herniated a disc on your back, is like saying “I made you some toast, but I burned the house.” The result is not worth the risk! Don’t you think?

There is just one achievement, which I acknowledge- a PR set with a perfect technique!

3.In the gym everything is about life or death. You should always train to failure and you should never stop earlier- otherwise you are a loser.

You have no idea, how often I observe people, who are close to their limit, they are tired and their technique is obviously suffering. Still, they do not stop. Instead they keep pushing, just because they’ve previously decided that they will complete “x”reps and each rep shorter would be a failure. Each rep shorter, would be equal to a personal defeat.

This is really wrong! It is one thing to be lazy and quit because you don’t feel like doing something and you’d rather slack it, and it is a complete different thing to be in the gym, give your best, but have enough conscious to know where your limit is. To be conscious enough and know your body, so you know when you could push a little harder and when it would be better to complete 2-3 reps less.

Here the indication is once again your technique. If you feel the loading in places where it shouldn’t be felt and if you feel that your technique is suffering- I do not care if you have 2-3 or 10 more reps! Just STOP!

Can you think of more mistakes that lifters make in the gym?

P.S. Don’t be a stranger and please take a minute to share this post with your friends! I’d greatly appreciate it!

I am a ‘something-searcher person” and I have devoted my life to the mission to reveal myself, to improve, to collect the pieces of puzzle in my own nature, so that to give and to receive from life as much as possible. My Life is history, full of broken dreams, falls, disappointments and finally achieved awareness, that it all depends on me and that each opportunity can be a materialized reality. We only have to think and act in a way, which will lead us on the road to its implementation. The most valuable resources we have are our time and health, and our Body is the instrument, through which we use them, to crate the world we live in. I dedicated my life to share myself, the wisdom and experience, which had left after the mistakes I had done. I am doing this in order to help people find their way, which will let them “’reinvent”’ themselves, to restore their health, confidence and trust for life. I wish they could realize their own potential. Training is rehearsal for the life itself; this is the place, where on a few square meters in the IFS you can experience each of the possible sensations- triumph, fall, disappointment, hope, will, weakness, and most of all power. The place, where in “monitoring conditions”” you can remind your body how to move correctly, how to work in your interest. Everything I have tried to achieve through IFS and the trainings is to help people bring back their consciousness, health and freedom to be who they are-without doubting. I have given myself time to re-build and to re-invent myself! Give yourself time as well. Come and train with us in IFS!
