Bad Exercise Habits That Are Destroying Your Leg Strength

start exploring


If you have a goal or deadline, you may be overambitious at the gym. But, moderation is key. With persistence, you'll succeed.

Overtraining is real. Too much weight can stress your muscles and bones, causing muscular soreness and weakness that will require time off the gym to recuperate.

not giving enough rest to your body

Give your muscles ample rest between sessions and training days. Back-to-back leg workouts may cause damage.

practice with poor postures

Check the five kinetic chain checkpoints—feet and ankles, knees, hips and pelvis, shoulders, and head—generally.

Legs should be shoulder-width apart with toes pointed forward, knees in line with second and third toes, and pelvis neutral. Avoid toe-pointing and knee-caving during leg workouts.

not doing excercise with right command

Running in the wrong shoes or on a hard surface might trigger shin splints or plantar fasciitis.

These difficulties will lengthen your rehabilitation. Think about it—an injury will cost you gym time and leg workouts.

not eating the right food for you

Post-workout nutrition are needed for muscle regeneration. You may not eat enough if you're dieting.

To rebuild leg muscles, eat protein, especially lean proteins like chicken, fish, and plant-based proteins.
