3 Big Muscle Building Mistakes

Building muscle really isn’t as complicated as it’s often made out to be. In fact, it’s rather quite simple.

So, why is it that so many people seem to struggle with muscle building?

Because they’re committing the same mistakes over and over again.

Here are three of the biggest mistakes you need to avoid if you want to get serious results from your time in the gym.



To build muscle, your body needs fuel (i.e. calories), plain and simple. In fact, if you want to maximize muscle growth, you actually need to eat more calories than you burn each day.

Far too many gym rats think all that’s needed to grow is to lift heavy, but it’s not actually training that builds muscle -- it’s the food you’re putting in your body after training that fuels the recovery and growth process. Lifting weights merely provides the stimulus that tells the body it needs to grow, it’s the food that’s being used to drive muscle building.

In other words, if you’re serious about getting bigger, you need to eat like a champ!


It’s easy to jump on the latest fitness craze and try the latest gym routine from your favorite social media personality. But, this constant program hopping is only serving to short-circuit your progress in the gym.

Continuously changing your program never allows your body to actually become proficient or stronger in a set number of movements. It’s wasting all of its resources trying to figure out how to do 15 new exercises every week.

Stop the endless muscle confusion, and select a handful of exercises for each muscle group. Get really good at doing them and then start adding reps and weight to the bar in those exercises and you’ll finally start to actually see progress in the gym and in your physique.


There’s no other way to say this than you need sleep if you want to maximize muscle growth. Sleep is essential not only to your body’s ability to recover and grow, it also impacts your ability to perform at a high level in the gym. Plus, sleep deficiencies also lead to increases in cortisol and decreases in testosterone, both of which impede the muscle building process.

Turn off the tv, iphone, ipad, and laptop, and start getting at least 7-9 hours of sleep each night and watch the gains mount.
