No Comments. Share it: Luckily most of us can tell the obvious things not to attempt at the gym — no matter what Instagram says. However, there are other, less egregious exercise mistakes many of us make and have no idea how bad they may be. Save the last five to 10 minutes of your workout for a cooldown. For example, if you have 60 minutes to exercise, dedicate the first three to five minutes to a warm-up, the next 45 to 50 minutes to the main part of your workout and the last five to 10 to an active cooldown that includes stretching and foam rolling.

Here are the 10 of the most common technique mistakes people make when lifting weights and working out in general, and exactly how to fix them. Once you do, you’ll start building.

Mistake #10 – Starting with the hips too low. This is the king of all mistakes I see. Too many times lifters try to squat the weight up rather than pull the weight. Think back to the number of times you’ve seen a big deadlift and thought to yourself how much more the lifter could’ve pulled if he didn’t damn near stiff-leg it. I see it all the.

  • Do you guys have any tips when it comes down to unsymetrical strenght? Im currently exercising with my bodyweight and ab-wheel only, but i am contemplating about starting with weights since both sides of the body will be working seperate. Any advice on this would be awesome:)

  • As an ana main, when you get Nanod its almost always on purpose and not randomly in a fight. I love using nanos to give our tanks their ults next fight if the situation is there, but ill have tanks outside of tc who get nanoed and run away instead of fighting

  • Fix my Bulgarian split squat! My quads get so knotted the day after just 3×10 body weight! I’m not new to lifting, bodybuilding 8 years. I did break my ankle 2 years ago but I’ve been lifting heavy again a good year

  • hey comment section, i have a question
    with the 10th tip, he recommended playing only one role, and i like playing mostly support. I normally six or five stack with friends in gold/play lobbies and sometimes we will get into arguments because my other friends want me to play something else other than support. What do i do?

  • Tip number 10: Don’t Main a lot of heroes and also go for 1 role
    Me: Well I play EVERY SINGLE HERO in overwatch.
    Yeah probably why I’m gold

  • Hi Mike, Love your work Would love to see a video on how you would use BFR / Occlusion training with recommended body parts best suited & exercises for those body parts best suited to hypertrophy please if at all possible… Cheers!

  • how about practicing the movement daily to help you get better form and control, not to an extent where you are tiring out your muscles but only for practice, for example my pull-ups day is Friday I do 2×10 which is usually me working my hardest, but daily I do 1×5 pull-ups just to concentrate on form. I do this with every exercise move I have such as my push-ups, squats, handstands, bridges and abb work.

  • Thanks for sharing. I’d love to see a workout plan come out where I can select what I do have at home as opposed to one that only focuses on no equipment! Stay safe

  • For number 6(i think) one of those things that will get me out and running is an app called Zombies, Run. Seriously, I couldn’t sleep last night so I started playing and next thing I know I’m standing on top of a mountain looking down at my town at 3am with the midnight sun and absolute quiet and It. Was. Beautiful.

  • Haha I’m GM and I’ve never watched those videos, just curious WHAT I DID WRONG! But those tips are for silvers/golds/plats maybe…Real tips are: TRAIN YOUR AIM IN DEATHMATCH. No problem guys, that wasn’t a secret. I have about 5000 hours in CS in 15 years so Overwatch was easy to learn, especially as Ashe (best DPS in offense now ) or Widow (best dps at deffense now). Meta nowadays is literally made for CS players because I own everyone with hitscans lol…That should be nerfed so I will play Overwatch not CS lol

  • ‪I don’t get the not doing fixed repsso I do an exercise to failure, and then is that the number I use each time? Or do I go to failure each time and the number may change? Thanks! ���� ‬

  • I really struggle with #2 lately. As I’ve progressed in my fitness journey I haven’t really changed my warm up and now it just doesn’t seem to active my muscles like it did in the beginning

  • #1 nutrition/ clean eating has always been a struggle for me. I do great for 2-3 weeks then I get lazy with my meal prep and don’t eat right and it sets me back. Sigh:( it makes my fitness progress yo-yo so much.

  • everybody is keen to lose weight, nobody thinks of those who need to gain weight..
    can you please make vedio about this?????????????????????????

  • I struggle with #11. Not falling in love listening to your accent while you speak helpful information to people whom want to be healthy. -And those eyes! I’m struggling. goodness help me.

  • #4, and not having a plan, not seeing actual results fucked me up in the head (I actually thought I might have a disease that prevented me from losing weight). So #4 is important. Which is kinda related to #7, as you said.

  • Shouldn’t you at least have a rest day? I think what you meant by not skipping a day was to be consistent because I thought having a rest day is also essential in increasing size and strength.

  • I disagree about rewarding yourself with food, as long as it’s healthy food. Sometimes I’ll be working out or taking a long walk and I start thinking about the meal I’m going to make afterwards, but it’s always something healthy and full of protein.

  • Man, I want to get fit really badly. I honestly can’t remember a time in my life when I didn’t hate the way I looked. I’m just a kid though, I don’t have a job, or even access to money to get on an exercise program. My parents won’t pay either. I hate my body and I want to get better. Anyone have any suggestions? Also please don’t tell me that I should love my body and that it’s perfect the way it is or any of that bull crap, my body fat percentage is complete trash and I need to fix it for my physical health too. I need a solution.

  • Great video. Question: at the top of your Russian swing it looks like your arms stop lower than I would expect, and the elbows bend from there a bit to complete the swing. Is this correct, or should your arms be straight and all together to the top of the swing? I would think that this could put strain on the elbows. I’m asking because I’m still learning.

  • What have you done to your face?!
    I had seen just a couple of your videos last year and I could hardly recognise you!
    You don’t look human anymore…

  • #4 for sure. I go to the gym regularly and try to split my days up to focus on one area or another, but especially while pregnant I struggle with keeping to a plan because it feels like I have to limit myself so much.

  • New research says stretching should be done as a workout alone, not before or after, because it doesn’t help with muscle soreness and actually increases chance for micro-injuring the muscle you’re stretching.

  • Nice video, thanks. I am more or less new to fitness and I am totally without a real plan so number 4 in addition to 1 as well. I would totally appreciate some guidance on getting a plan:-)

  • Proper form is very important. In running it is important to land on the ball of your feet rather than the middle or heel. Most people want to land heel first and role forward to toes last, but this is incorrect. If you land on your heels with straight legs it can send shock waves up your whole leg and eventually cause injury. It’s better to land on your toes and allow your ankle to act like a spring while also keeping at slight bend in the knees. This helps a lot to protect your joints.

  • #2 I tend to want to get in the gym and go full beast mode and end up hurting myself. #3 -I wrap up my workout, grab my gym bag, then leave.

  • I would say #1! I feel like I am eating well or at least better than i used to… I try to be as healthy as possible, I don’t believe in dieting but in changing your habbits in the long run. But I don’t lose weight!! In the last 10 years (I’m 30 now) I’ve gone from 48kg to 55, and now around 52 ish (though I just gained 2kg and it’s killing me!) and I am 1,62m. I do French boxing (a type of kick boxing) in a club 2 to 3 times a week, practice is 1, 5 2 hours, it is my second year, and I started a Nike training program 6 weeks ago with practice 2 or 3 times a week. I know I am stronger and everything but I don’t lose any weight… Help!

  • With #2, couldn’t someone just get a specialised attachment where the parts you hold onto (technical term) are offset from the rest of the bar, so that the middle part of the bar would touch their belly (at full extension) while their elbows were still back? I get that such a cable attachment might be expensive and/or difficult to acquire… but when you train in a gym, they don’t always have every piece of equipment that you want, and you can’t expect the owner to make a business decision to get a new piece of kit that only one person wants.

  • I’ve never lost more weight than I have since this whole quarantine thing began and never have been so strict and consistent with dieting. This virus is a blessing in disguise for me.

  • What would you say about the kind of pyramid method? For instance if you know you can only do five pull ups in a set, doing one, two, three and so on up to the max and then working back down.

  • Alpha I respect you and I believe in what you do… But I have some info that can help refine your tips good sir.

    1. Exercising every day can be good (as it can help develop the habit) but you need to emphasize that you should be exercising different muscle groups per day to prevent overtraining. Physical therapy textbooks typically prescribe resistance exercises (muscle/strength building exercises) 3 days/week for any muscle group.

    2. Isometric exercises are muscle contractions without movement (these can be with or without weights) for example: flexing your muscle to show off your guns or holding a weight stationary mid-rep)

    Regardless, I appreciate what you do and I thank you for the advice you give to all the gentlemen out there!

  • How many days a week shall I go? I have a job and I’m working 45 hours a week and I can’t go 4 days a week in the gym every time, is killing me. Any suggestions?

  • Resting too much isn’t a real thing. You need to make sure you know beforehand how your sets are going to look like and you should always go ’till the edge of what you can do. This means that whether you rest for 20 seconds or 2 minutes, as long as you finish your set to faillure you’ve done a good job. Even resting 20 minutes can be a good thing when you notice one particular muscle group has been depleted of energy and you want to do another 3 sets. Just make sure your body doesn’t cool down in the meantime. So fill in the time with other exercises or even light cardio to stay warm.
    In short: as long as you make sure your body is hot and you don’t forget to do your warmup sets, and you finish your set at failure (no matter what the weight or amount of reps are), there’s no such thing as ”resting too much”.

  • 8:55 9:44 is exactly how 99%of all games bellow plat are…Hammond is easy to counter and shoot down before he can even get to Widow, Genji is also easy to counter and shoot down before even getting to Widow…you need Winston…….and there is no DPS that can stop a Widow effectively

  • I’ve done all of them. All the mistakes:P still trying to figure out how to stay on a routine. I always start doing a 30 day challenge or whatever and then end up dropping it.

  • so i tried to order you Rebel fragment and you don’t ship to israel… sad, sad.
    and i also did a how i stay in shape during this difficult time, and got no views, you got almost 200k views, what gives?

  • Number 6 but I’m trying to gain weight so I have to eat after so it’s ok �� One thing I need to do is cool down but I can’t afford a massage or acupuncture… it’s already expensive enough to eat more lol

  • I love how tanned you are �� and the arm tattoo! You breathe happinness!

    Could you talk more about high cortisol levels and how to lower it down? I’ve been wrongly diagnosed with pcos but the acne and all the digestive stuff is still going on…

    If you already have done a video about it, I’m sorry. Thanks.

  • I’m getting serious tendonitis in my elbows, been training about 1+1/2 years (six times a week, push pull legs repeat)
    Mostly with tricep exercises, now it’s making its way into lat pulldowns and pull ups arent possible:(
    any information you can throw my way would be a life saver!!!! Love the channel RP! ❤️

  • All of them�� at one point or another… finally in that phase where I enjoy working out and have made it part of my lifestyle! 60lbs down & About 20more lbs to go but not in any rush… love your vlogs!!!

  • Some muscles, triceps one of them, can grow more with partial reps. There are studies showing this. If someone is interested to know in detail Google, chris Beardsley medium triceps

  • Best advice I’ve ever had. Leave your ego at the door, don’t train for a set amount of reps, train for failure that day. I pick a set amount of reps to gauge what weight I’m starting with, but I go to failure during the actual set, whether it’s more or less than that set number. But my question is for when we are doing alternating limb sets. Do I match the reps I did with one arm if I can do more with the other arm? I don’t want to have a muscle imbalance so I usually will match with my weakest side. What are your thoughts, Jeff?

  • 4 and 6, I do reward myself with food sometimes when i’m on period and i start craving sweets and fats. also i’m not sure how to truly build my exercise plan, currently i try to find blogs and fitness people with the same goals and body shape as me and i choose my preferable workouts and do it

  • How do I know if I have the new or old formula of rebel? I have 2 bottles 1 open and 1 unopened. Both ordered within the past month or so

  • My goal is to do a handstanding push up without support, i cant do a handstand as of now, and im not strong in my shoulders or triceps, but im committed.

  • Love this channel. Secret intensity technique for push downs: After you’ve reached true failure with good form take a couple steps back, lean forward and let the weight force your elbows to track up, then push out in front of you and down. You can continue to stimulate the long head really well with this method.

  • That warm up tho’:’) hehe a cuestion? im a spining instructor.. not the psique i want yet.. but i want to know IF i WORK in a gym (im new) how many times at day is good to do exercise? (counting ONE spinning class i have to do a day) is good idea to train muscle every day too? or frecuency?:O i mean the spinning class due to job responsability I HAVE to make it everyday… (hope im clear english isnot my born language) thanks.

  • Whoever did the subtitles has a wry sense of humor, e.g. at 12:35,
    “your’re not doing a proper movement for Greg.” Who is Greg and what does he know anyway?

  • #2, 3, 5, 6 and 10. My issues are definitely around stretching. I just don’t do it enough. Would love more videos on stretching and recovery.

  • 2,3, 6, 9, 10 great video Rachel! If you would touch base on these topics I think it’d be so great and differentiate you from what’s currently out there. Enjoy Bali!!

  • I don’t agree with working out every day. Your body needs rest and time off. You won’t lose any gains in a day or two off. You can get swole and ripped working out Monday,Wednesday, Friday, Sunday.

  • I personally don’t think you should exercise every single day because your muscles need rest to grow but working out 6-5 days a week is a constant routine

  • NEW “FAST ACTION” Q&A Leave your most burning question about this video or any other training, PT or nutrition question within the first 2 hours of this video’s release (AS A SEPARATE COMMENT!!) and I will pick 8 to get a detailed reply from me right here in the comments. Answers will be posted within the first 24-48 hours of you leaving the question. Good luck!

  • I really want to start working out but i have NO EXPERIENCE AT ALL and i never now what to do as stretching or warm up ir what counts as warming up etc. I just don’t now how to start

  • the video was very nice, i do 35 pushups 60 cruches 800 skippings 15 min jogging every day and increase every thing by 5 so am i over training?? i do it every day

  • RedDeltaProject disagrees with you about some points here. For example you SHOULD NOT change your routine unless it really doesn’t work for you. And if it’s boring then you aren’t concentrating enough. Also he is against warming up. U should really check his channel, he have a lot of interesting info.

  • I’ve found that one of the best cues is to squeeze your triceps at the bottom instead of pushing to lockout. I still lockout, but the cue takes a lot of stress off my elbow onto the triceps.

  • Totally agree with #9. Creating a space is key for mindset and was my number one demotivator when I first started working out at home. I ended up rearranging the furniture to open up the space as much as possible… got a ball, foam roller and hung up resistance bands on a door… it made it feel more like a workout space instead of having those things tucked away.

  • Great tips! The point about supplements was interesting..I don’t usually take much of those (I should though)…I try to get most of my vitamins directly from my food, like you said, but I understand that adding some supplements may be necessary sometimes. I’ve never heard it phrased the way you described it though….how can we tell when we need a specific type of supplement? Did you have to look it up online every time you felt a bit off before you knew all about which feeling means you require a specific supplement? I’d be so lost if I tried to do that, lol.

  • Again great tutorial. Basically answering all the questions about tricep push downs. Truly putting out the best content! Thx Dr Mike����

  • Sir i m a beginner.
    I m doing home workout at home and i m skinny.
    What is better for me.
    1.to do full body workout
    2.to do workout of specific part per day.

    Please reply i m too confused

  • I just bought a resistant band handles, weight, mini band, pull up, weighted vast and gymnastic rings. i also have foam roller in my house

  • Please cover the overhead triceps extensions, and the standing cable flyes extension.
    With the flyes sometimes I feel like I have to lock my scapula but I undo it trying to reach that peak contraction.

  • Love your videos. They’re so informative! Having said that, could you possibly provide some insights as to how loaded carries can be effectively incorporated into a hypertrophy program? Also, if you could go into a bit of detail as to what these exercises are meant to train (i.e., strength, cardiovascular conditioning, hypertrophy, etc.), that would be fantastic.

  • The wide stance is because people who just started using kettle bells or people with the fear of hitting their shins with the kettle bell is why their stance is so wide.

  • I’m thinking ah man he gets me, during this China virus restrictions time I feel so f’d just because the gyms closed, no other reason, don’t care about the virus ����

  • Hi Rachel!! I generally count my calories just to make sure I don’t go overboard because my body only needs about 1200 kcals, but would you suggest counting macros??

  • I’d love to see the extieror of his house. What is his career? just a fantastic youtube video maker? Money from advertising? I love the vids though.

  • Jesse, do you consider better for training: intensity (consider as repetitions ) > constancy… Cause if you go to the failure with the reps as you say in the video, then you get to much sore in your muscles the next day, not allowing you to train so well. At least thats my case, so if you can answer this, it would be awesome! Thanks!

  • I am an athlete and over the past year and a half I have trained my hardest. Regardless, I maintained the exact same body weight for and full year Jan-Dec. I changed my diet, did excessive training via running and gym work. I cant seem to lose the extra body fat that I want to lose. Can you make a video sharing your advise and also probably how to get pass this. I also want to lose an extra 10 lbs or rebuild the extra i have into just muscle. Thanks

  • Question to the poster: is it really necessary to get the chin over the bar on a pullup? some channels say you only need to pull until your eyes are even with the bar (chinups is another story). which is the right way, and why? thanks.

  • Just what to forward everyone to this video witch gose further in depth into isometrics and if the are axauly effective

  • Well the obvious options aren’t possible for me I would literally break my home and i can’t hang up a bar so I’m still seeking for back exercises

  • Hi there I’m New to your channel, one question
    I am 51kg and very skinny 17 year old boy
    Should I start workouts or focus on gaining weight?

  • I have lower back pain due to improper deadlifting form, I haven’t see a doctor. I been doing bodyweight exercises, however when I do a lean wall handstand push up my lower back would ache, what should I do?

  • I have a lot of respect for crossfit, know people who do it well and the top tear crossfit athletes are some of the best in the world. However, being entirely honest, much of this video just looked like the majority of corssfitters doing the bodyweight part of their workouts. I just see this too much at the gym.

  • Jeff: “What the hell are you doing Jesse?”
    Jesse: “Dude I’m doing floor pull-ups.”
    Jeff: “Oh really, I never thought about that before…”
    Jesse: “Yeah, they’re great!”


  • Is she a CERTIFIED personal trainer? If not skip the part 5 and make yourself a program. You don’t always have to buy new programs. Find videos how to make your own fitness program. Of course this is for the more advanced people in the gym that know good form, what works for their body and stuff. Otherwise by all means buy it. Im just sick of people shoving these programs down your throat when half of them aren’t even certified personal trainers them self and you can easily make them yourself. But than again if she is than its all good. Just be careful where you spend your coins

  • thanks… good to call out the psychological factors besides just movement mistakes! (like picking a room that doesnt cater to ‘comfort’) and being creative yet save about movement choices

  • Great video but I disagree working out everyday, this may lead to fatigue and may not be sustainable in the long run. Your body now and then needs rest.

  • Dr Mike thanks to you Home training is not an issue anymore, thru your vids alone I somehow “evolved” how I percieved hypertrophy training can’t explain it other way.

  • Great explanations Max, thank you. I started doing kettlebell swings a month ago and had to stop after injuring my lower back. Your video has really helped me figure out what I was doing wrong.

  • Guilty of #2, #3 (I often go to a yoga class often straight from weight session, and I consider it a stretch/cool down), #5 (I’ve become obsessed w/ spin, weights and yoga. I often combine 2 in a day a weight and yoga, or spin then weight. Usually I end up taking 1 rest day a week). I’ve carried on this way for months. Sometimes I feel run down and when that happens I do take a break. I approach classes and exercise as a fun hobby, that makes me feel great, rather then a means to an end. It’s a lifestyle/hobby/habit at this point. Do you think it’s damaging to be active this often?

  • 6 is so true about me. I always reward myself with food, not for training, for doing my job well or for keeping my diet for more than a week. Sometimes it seems like food is the only pleasure, especially junk and sugary. Have no idea what to do about it

  • 1 0:49 focus on what resources you do have
    2 1:30 do exercises with proper form and speed
    3 2:25 exercise variety
    4 3:16 focus on failure instead of fixed count
    5 4:56 focus on proper strength exercises if your focus is strength
    6 5:55 don’t forget to strengthen your *back*, such as pull up at a door
    7 6:39 (ignore back may worsen *posture*)
    8 7:58 create a home routine
    9 8:47 pick the right room to help focus
    10 9:33 (like 3, change it up)

  • Hey Jeff, funny thing is i stumbled on a home workout program by a random guy on the internet who was doing the floor lat pull downs and i was about to do it as well:D
    So thanks for saving my ass man

  • hi from arizona, rachel!:) you’ve inspired me in so many ways! quick question… is there a best time of day to workout? �� i’m sorry for the basic question! i’m still learning:)

  • When you say “modify the exercises every two weeks” do you mean progressively doing the harder variation of the same exercise? This is the only point f the video i did not understand.:D

  • i am proud to say that i dont do any of these things and i do the opposite!:) so i am on the right track! 3rd month working out and keeping my mind straight ����

  • I went from 181 to 150 in like 2 months riding 7 miles going up and down hills with my bicycle and i dont eat breakfast, then come home from work and work out then eat healthy. You got to put the work in and you’ll see results

  • great video Rachel!:) I struggled with number 10 so many times. I always started to excercise and I did really well for about a month or two but then I always! ALWAYS! got sick for a month and after that I was at the beginning again.It was so frustrating and I don´t even talk about the lost of motivation after failing so many times. Videos like this one give me strength. Thank you:)

  • when you mean sticking to the same work out routine does that mean after one day doing a workout routine we change that to something new or we change it after a week?

  • you SHOULD train more often… That is, OUTSIDE, in the sun. You both look so ill. You both wear the whitest bodies ive seen in a long.

  • 1: happens a lot, and i don’t even know why but it does happen a lot
    2: I have no idea what counts as a warm up? it sounds stupid but i really don’t know how to warm up properly
    4: I don’t know how to do a plan, at all.

  • Mr. Sven is so BEAUTIFUL and SEXY! i am glad to have not met him in person, otherwise I would have lost my self respect, committed bad acts onto him and been sent to women’s prison… xoxo

  • I was kind of expecting something about the torso angle, didn’t see it. Does the torso angle also not matter? Assuming it’s not comically horizontal or something like that

  • And if you break the door frame or the kitchen counter, it will be more expensive than a gym membership or purchasing the equipment alltogether. Plus, someone at home will be seriously mad.

  • I’m at a point where instead of watching the video in a highly tense, annoyed state because the lead is buried in 10 minutes of chatter, I get relief from the “you’re doing it wrong” comments…
    Jeff, as for addressing the headliner in an effective period of time: you’re doing it wrong.

  • i have tendon shoulder injury in front of my delt on basic exercice i can do pull ups and i have been training without push up or dips for 2 month did i train or not?

  • Dr. Mike is hands down my favorite informative channel. It’s been extremely beneficial for training advice and so many exercises. Thanks for all you do & share with us, Doc

  • #2 and #3, It’s hard for me to find time between school and my full time job to workout but I find that I only have a few minutes to work out, so I tend to just jump into the workout and run out of the gym after I complete workout. Could you please post some quick warmups and recovery exercises?

  • Great video Max and thank for sharing. I’ve been doing mine in the wrong shoes:) Question: for men over 40, what weight KB should we use? I have a 30lb KB that I usually swing for 30reps, 3-4 rounds as part of my full body routine.

  • I really like your videos guys but i have a question..granted that you practice what you preach how come you dont have more muscle on your frame? There are a lot of people doing calisthenics that have way more impressive physiques.Maybe building a lot of muscle is not your mail goal or you dont have the time to invest on this.Whats the case? plz reply! And plz dont mistake me,i am no hater, i absolutely love what you do!

  • Thanks this is an excellent problem solving video. I prefer the hard style swing and have a question re the arm position as you swing up to the top of your swing. Should arms be straight or should they as I think your showing be bent and closer to the body, and if so, whys that

  • Question I don’t warm up the way your guy does in the video. I instead begin by doing the exercise with very low intensity, is that ok? thanks!!!

  • Max Berry, your right shoulder looks noticeably lower than your left shoulder. Have you been checked for scoliosis? Be well, sir.
