Have you been going to the gym for a while and been disappointed that you’re not seeing results? There’s nothing worse than spending tons of time and effort exercising and seeing no progress. If you’re going to the gym, you want to see that you’re getting something out of your workouts and no muscle growth could be a sign you’re doing something wrong. Here are three things that might be killing your gains.

No Long Term Plan

If you switch up the exercises too often and have no long-term focus, you won’t see gains. It turns out that doing the same workout over and over again builds strength and muscle more than switching it up. Stick to the same exercises and focus on progressing with more weight or reps over time.

Too Many Sets

While it may seem like doing more sets leads to more gains, there are just a certain number of sets that you need for a single session and anything above it can lead to injuries. Aim for no more than 10 sets per muscle group in one session.

Redundant Exercises

Make sure you’re making the most out of your time at the gym and choose your exercises wisely. Include exercises that are biomechanically different and challenge the muscles at different angles and ranges of motion.
