5 Training Mistakes Advanced Lifters Make

Jun 06, 2021
Alright, hello everyone, this is John Meadows, and today is my birthday, so I'm going to

make

a birthday video for you about

training

, so last week, maybe week four, I made a video about five Common

mistakes

beginners

make

. This video shows five common

mistakes

that

advanced

trainees make. I have been

training

for over thirty-five years. I certainly have my thoughts on some of the mistakes that

advanced

men and women make, so I want to share with you when I sat down in the fall. There were five of them, it kind of jumped out at me, the first one is about a logbook, okay, so if you remember last week I talked about beginners, they should use the logbook, they should track their progress as a beginner and even at its intermediate level you should see. your strength increases repeatedly just by improved neural connections in your body, things of that nature, very common knowledge things, but what I see with some of the advanced guys who use logbooks, you have to realize when you train fifteen twenty twenty- Al Ultimately, in five years you reach the point where you don't get much stronger.

If you did, we'd all be squatting a thousand pounds and two thousand pounds, but that's not the reality and I see a lot of guys still doing it. their log book and they're frustrated and they look exactly the same and then what happens is they basically turn into injuries. This is the pattern I see. I hit my log book today but I modified something or didn't hit my log book numbers today so this training was a failure and I think when you get older you can't think in terms of hard numbers as a dictator of success.

More Interesting Facts About,

I think it has more to do with consistency, training hard, not missing training week after week. week and a lot of times, for example, someone says they're squatting, let's say it's three fifteen four eight and then the next week, let's say it's seven, that's all they can do, but they get into ugly shape and they get the eighth. They rap then they want to beat the record book so their form improves to do the ninth rep. Personally, I don't think that's an improvement. I think you are now exposing yourself to possible injuries if you had stopped the series of six laps or Seven reps say it was all seven laps.

I wouldn't call that a failure if you were still working hard and doing the best you could and making the most income code with good form, so I think when people start they should. Be very focused on the numbers and the forum and then I think as they get older they should focus more on the forum and just the effort as long as you work consistently day in and day out. Forget the log book. Do you know if I took a record? book for the gym and if I don't like it, now I don't PR very often, if I did, if I always tried, I guarantee you I would get hurt and the guys that know you told me that I It should be that all those guys are have shoulder surgery, now they have neck surgery, they have knee problems, so don't be so gross with the numbers.

The other thing I see in older kids is that they tend to be stubborn. They don't have open minds and have no real variation in their exercises. You know, sometimes when I post a different exercise, people say, "Well, that's useless, it's not equipment, it's not bench press, it's not a row, maybe it's not your typical meat and potatoes exercise, but there's a reason why I do it and a lot of times when you do the same movement patterns over and over again you start to get a little pesky injury, you start to get tendinitis and that can lead to injury too, but here's what you The body is an adaptive machine and the older you get and the more you train, the more it adapts and the harder it is to keep growing, that's the same as with strength, it's true with adaptation in terms of hypertrophy you can just get stronger in terms of hypertrophy. every workout forever you can't increase the reps you're doing every workout forever how cool would it be to bench 315 for a set of hundred if that were the case the same with your body's hypertrophy if you're doing the same thing over and over again , your body will get used to the same exercises, so I think all exercises are a great way to introduce a novel stimulus to your muscles, something that you haven't seen, it's not muscle confusion, but it is a novel stimulus if you don't believe in novel stimuli think about a year maybe in athletics or football and you're running on a flat surface and then the oldest thing you ever had was running up a hill remember those days remember the pain running up the hill gave you that wasn't muscle confusion that was just a novel stimulus something your muscles weren't used to that novel stimulus effect is very important for advanced practitioners I think when I do the same workout but I like it if I do it three times in a row I can usually tell it's losing its effect , something feels great after two weeks and then like the third week, it's like, not so good.
Now, when I was younger, I could do the same thing 12 weeks in a row. It would be awesome, but as you get older listen, just keep an open mind. Do a lot of exercises if you are stuck in something you don't believe it is, you don't think it is helping you change it, do something different, don't be so stubborn. Okay, the next thing I wanted to talk about is overeating. This is interesting because you know in bodybuilding we've always been taught to push hard, it's just a matter of court surplus, there are all these people out there saying it's just a numbers game. for food you just have to have enough calories, so when people don't gain much muscle they start consuming more and more calories, that's fine, to a point, but think about what has happened to an advanced person along of the years, think about how they spend a lot of time in a caloric surplus and what I see in these people is a lot of digestive problems, all kinds of costs, it could be something like constipation or it could be something as serious as irritable bowel syndrome, they could be various versions of colitis.
Straight from colitis, you know things like that, Crohn's disease, but you start to see leaky gut, you start to see a lot of problems related to digestion and even problems with your immune system, but I think it's been in a constant caloric surplus decade after decade, I think. It's enough for you. I really do it instead of just eating more and more and more. I would caution people with that approach and tell them to make sure the foods you're eating are absorbed very well, make sure you pay attention to your digestion. and all those things, get them in order first instead of just consuming calories and eating more Big Macs.
In fact, if I had to rank them, this would probably be number one, the other thing I think advanced students do wrong. Especially nowadays, on social media they have this image that they want to portray that they are hardcore and I've seen this a lot in the last two or three years: they don't listen to their body, so what will happen is someone will. They have a bit of a nagging injury and they'll say, well, I'm still going to deadlift for Instagram or they'll still, you know, maybe they have lower back issues, but they'll still do heavy squats for Instagram and they're just trying to look tough, they're Saying you know you just have to get through the pain or whatever, listen, there's good pain, there's back pain, and when you're in bad pain, it's your body talking to you if you ignore it.
You are going to get injured, it will be a serious injury. Just the fact that you've been training for 10 or 20 years means that by nature, working hard, you're going to have some injuries. The goal is to keep you as a minor. you know tendinitis, you're going to get tendinitis, you're going to get strains here and there, that's just part of training hard, but you have to minimize the fact that you don't need tears, like there's no rule that says you have to have a tear. muscle like that is not a good thing, if you tear a muscle you can't train, you can't progress and then you have a muscle that looks bad, but that's what I see a lot with older guys: they're just not listening to their body and again they don't change their exercises.
I'll give you an example like I can't do it, I can't put a heavy bar on my back to do squats anymore, but I can still do a trick. doing heavy squats I can still do heavy leg press, so as much as I love squatting and even though it's not difficult to do leg press, I know it will allow me to train longer. I'll be able to continue training harder, whereas I was when I went here and said, "I'm going to squat here." How much it hurts. I know I probably won't be able to get out of bed now because my lower back would be so bad, so again listen to your body.
Listen. Listen, listen, there's something your body almost always tells you when you're about to go, so just listen and the last thing I want to say is I start to say it's not free time, but there's no balance in your life. , so Bodybuilding itself is a kind of selfish sport, it doesn't have to be, but it often is. People think the world revolves around them, they forget about all the people around them, which is very, very sad. They think they have to be selfish. so that's all they focus on, that's it, there's nothing they don't focus on, their family, don't focus on their friends, don't go out to eat because of all the bad food or restaurants, they just lose their minds. perspective of what is happening. valuable in life and when that happens, some of those people might go to a contest and they might win and I was in this situation when I was in my early 20s.
Win a contest. I drove home with the trophy and my truck with just me. and the trophy is a very empty feeling, it wasn't a great feeling, you know, I have someone to share it with, so I try to tell people especially to go to seminars like: "You can't forget the people around you , you can't forget." your close friends, your family, like you, can't do that, so what happens is that these people don't get any satisfaction from training your body bill, they have nothing to share, no one to share it without satisfaction, they are not happy and then they just burn out and quit, and I've seen that happen many times over the years, they burn out, quit, you never see it again and you can usually trace it back to someone who wasn't paying attention.
What was happening in his life now? I've been doing this for 35 years and I think what saved me was probably listening to my body because when I felt something weird I didn't try to get over it and keep my life balanced. those important things are still important to me, not ignore them. I think those were probably two things that really helped me. So quick summary. Don't rely too much on a journal. Make sure you rotate the exercises. Don't overeat all the time. I know you may want to have a calorie surplus here and there, but building up year-round is probably not a good idea.
When you get older, listen to your body, you don't have to be hardcore on social media all the time and keep a balance in your life. I think as an advanced learner, if you keep those kind of five things in mind, you really focus on them. I think you'll be fine, so I appreciate you listening to me. Hope everyone has a great day.
