6 Muscle-building mistakes?

In this article, I am going tell you about the big mistakes that you make during and after your workout that are stopping you from achieving your muscle-building goals. Here we go :

What is the 5 biggest Muscle building mistake?

  1. Focus.
  2. Planning.
  3. Creatine Monohydrate.
  4. Sodium.
  5. Glycogen.
  6. Amino Acids.


Before starting your workout, it is of utmost importance that you visualize your workout. If you want to gain muscle it is necessary for you to lift heavy weights in the gym. Because lifting heavy and progressive overloads are the main ways to build your muscle.

And if you want to lift heavyweight than it is very crucial that you completely focus is on your workout. The 2-3 repetitions of your set are the most important because they give your body the signal to build new muscle.

If you are not properly focused then you will miss this opportunity and you will not gain muscles.

30 minutes before starting workout keep your phones away and start focusing on your workout we call this ‘Zoning in’.

With this technique, you can divert you of mind from your future tasks and the stressful activity that have happened throughout your day and focus on your workout.

In order to zone in :

  • You can mediate.
  • Take a nap
  • Watch motivational videos of your favorite bodybuilder.

This will help you focus and give you motivation for your workout.


In life, before going into a battle you must properly plan for it. The same rule apply to your workout.

If you are going to the gym and doing random workouts every day than your result will also be random. which is why it is very important for you to have a proper and planned workout plan.

So that you know what exactly you are going to do. Weather it’s exercise, number of sets and reps or your nutrition and supplement intake.

Your nutrition and supplement intake and how much weight you lifted last week so you can lift more this week. Because this is what we call progressive overload which grows our muscle.

Creatine Monohydrate.

Creatine is a compound that not only helps your muscle growth but also assists you in lifting heavier weights in the gym.

During the workout, the ATP (Adenosine Triphosphate) levels in our body decrease. But creatine increases our body’s ATP levels and gives us energy to perform heavy lifts.This enhances our muscle growth potential.


Sodium is an electrolyte which has a very big role in achieving muscle pump. If your body is deficient in sodium, it looks flat and you do not experience a good muscle pump while working out in the gym.

30 minutes before your workout consume 1/4 tablespoon of salt. This hydrates your body and provides it with sufficient sodium. You will feel a better pump and notice an important in your performance.


You know that our body uses the glycogen stores of its muscles to lift heavy weights. Glycogen is obtained from glucose and glucose is obtained from carbohydrates.

If the body does not have enough glucose or glycogen, it will be harder for you to lift heavy and your performance will lack.

Amino Acids.

I don’t need to tell you how big of a role protein has in our muscle growth. Muscle = Protein = Amino Acids.

When the body does not have enough Amino Acids while working out, it increases the chance of muscle loss.

30 minutes before your workout consume 15-20 grams of protein source which is high in LEUCINE.

It helps keeping a consistent supply of amino acids in your bloodstream and prevent muscle loss.
