The Worst Fitness Habits You Need To Break Immediately!

November 19, 2015 2 min read

You call yourself something of a fitness fanatic but you can't seem to take your performance to the next level. What gives? All you may need is a little wake-up call! It may not be what you are doing, but how you are doing it. So if you've been working toward the same fitness goal for what feels like forever, you may be guilty of a bad habit or two. Here are 6 common habits that hold people back every single day:

1. Your form stinks

Lifting heavier and running faster are great things, but only if you are using your body correctly. Proper form is what allows you to work your muscles and avoid injury. Don't compromise your form just to get in that last rep. Be steady and consistent, you'll strengthen your muscles in time.   [bctt tweet="The Worst Fitness Habits You Need To Break Immediately!"]

2. You overwork yourself

Working out every day and going full tilt at the gym without allowing yourself rest periods limits the success you can achieve. Your muscles NEED rest in order to repair, grow and function. Pace yourself when working out, take your rest days and eat clean meals to aid and speed your recovery.

3. You slack off

Don't become too relaxed. Your goal should always be slow and steady gains. So, if you completed your cardio last week on the treadmill at 5mph, try running faster this week. Same goes for strength training. If you have been using 8 pounds weights for the last few weeks, try 10. The more you challenge yourself, the better your results. fad added sugar

4. Losing focus

Getting into the zone is great, but if you spend too much time there, you may lose track of your goals. Make your workouts as interactive as possible so you stay focused on what you are doing. It is easy for your mind to wander so leave all of that at the door and think only about how much your fitness goals mean to you.

5. Getting comfortable in your routine

A common mistake people make is sticking to the same routine. Sure, it is great when you find something that works for you but unless you are mixing it up every few weeks, you will hit a plateau. Your muscles adapt really quickly so the more diverse your workout is, the better. INPOST-mistakes

6. Forgetting to breathe

When it comes to fitness, your breath is your power. Breathing properly will give your muscles the extra boost it needs to get through those last few reps. Inhale through the nose and out through the mouth. Once you get rid of these habits, a whole new level of fitness will open to you. Trust us! You'll notice the results almost right away!

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. While health and wellness companies are essential services, there is simply an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as individuals and hospitals need more supplies than ever before. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-5 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. You will receive the tools you need to stay safe and strong at home through this difficult time. Thanks for your support and understanding.

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.

Clothing

All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
