    6 You refuel too much

    Itís always extremely important to refuel after any training session. Your body uses energy from its glycogen stores when you work out and if you want your muscles to recover properly, you need to replenish that energy. That said some people take the refuelling element too far. It can be awfully easy to eat more calories/kilojoules than youíve burned by picking food full of Ďempty caloriesí. This term applies to food that is full of calories/kilojoules but offers little nutritional value. For example a cheeseburger is fine as an occasional treat, but it really shouldnít be your meal of choice after a gym session.

    It can also become a post workout habit to snack on energy bars and sports drinks which are full of sugar. Rehydrate with water instead and snack on healthy options like fruit and nuts. A healthy balanced diet will help you hit your fitness goals and improve the quality of your workouts.

    7 Over-emphasis on cardio exercise which ignores weights

    Many people shy away from weights when they put together a gym programme because theyíre worried about bulking up. They tend to think that running or cycling miles and miles rather than workouts in the gym, will take them where they want to go. That is understandable up to a point, but by ignoring weight training you ignore huge potential health and fitness benefits.

    Itís important to bear in mind that you are always in charge of how much weight you lift and the impact that has on your body, so if you want to look like a bodybuilder, you can indeed develop that look by lifting heavy weights. However if you want to tone muscle, increase your calorie/fat burn and boost your metabolic system, then low level weight sessions are a fantastic idea.
