Everyone wants to make muscle gains.
However, beyond newbie gains, you need to rethink your strategy in order to maximize gains. Here are the most common mistakes you’re probably making and how to fix them:
1.You don’t prioritize the right exercises at the beginning of your workout when you have the most energy.
You walk into a gym and start your workout by doing every biceps curl variation you know, before you even think about pulling exercises for your back muscles. Then, you wonder why you...
Having trained quite a lot of women for the past 9 years, (in addition to making these mistakes myself earlier in my training career) here are my top 4 mistakes most women make at the gym:

Many times I find myself having to instruct the client to REST between sets.
Women, especially, are so used to performing one exercise then jumping in place then running up the stairs then going back to doing another exercise, so that they FEEL exhausted at the end of a workout.
But, the truth is, exhaustion =/= progression.
I love incorporating supersets with clients, as well as fillers betwe...
"Strength training appeals to people for different reasons, but let's be honest—everyone wants to look good naked, and no one wants to get injured. You've probably tried countless training programs looking to achieve your dream physique, yet you feel that something is missing. Maybe you're bench pressing 225 pounds, but your shoulder keeps bothering you; or you've added some inches to your biceps, but you're still being told to stop slouching so much; or you've seen improvements in your physique...
