Don’t let the common fitness competition training mistakes happen to you!

Regardless of how well-versed you are in the ways of physical fitness, you should know that training for a physique competition is unlike any other form of training. That is why first-time competitors often make mistakes that end up costing them competitions. Check out our last blog to learn about the physique competition training mistakes we’ve already gone over, and keep reading to learn about the last couple mistakes to avoid:

Mistake #5. High rep strength training and too much cardio.

The key to successful competition training is to find a balance between cuts and gains. Cardio training is important for burning fat and making cuts, but too much of it could actually cause your muscles to break down. High rep training is another great option for burning fat, but you won’t see the kind of gains that you will with fewer reps and heavier weights. Fewer reps and heavier weights will make your muscles look fuller.

Mistake #6. Failing to consider the social sacrifices.

You have to dedicate a lot of your time and attention in order to successfully train for a competition, and it will require you to make social sacrifices in your life. If you are not ready to put social meals, outings and drinks on pause for your training schedule, you are not ready for competition training.
