Just because you do a workout program doesn’t mean it’s going to work! One of the biggest misconceptions about working out is that you can do whatever you like and think that you’ll get the same results as someone who is doing what is right. There are so many workout plans that focus so much on doing more without ever paying attention to the value of doing less.
To address this issue, pro strength coaches Jeff Cavaliere and Rick Slate got together at the 2014 MLB Winter Meetings to discuss the major mistakes holding back natural drug free lifters from seeing the results they should from their workouts. First on that list is an inattention to rest and recovery. Everyone always concentrates on the action part of a workout. That is the part that stimulates muscle growth and performance, however without a period of rest and muscle recovery the adaptations cannot take place.
As Rick points out, great measures are taken to ensure that this component is not overlooked at the major league level with the Braves. In fact, it not only applies to the strength training and workout side of things but also the nutrition and supplementation. Supplements that promote recovery (such as the ATHLEAN-Rx MECHAN-X joint recovery formula does for joints) are and will continue to be at the forefront of sports supplementation moving forward.
You simply cannot ignore the importance of muscle repair and sleep if you want to speed up the muscle building and performance gains you see from your training. Even though it is often a hard concept to grasp for those that grew up doing 30 plus set workouts and spending 2 hours a day at the gym, it doesn’t make it any less important to correct your line of thought now.
Muscles need proper stimulus through hard but efficient training, solid nutrition, and recovery to grow as quickly and fully as genetically possible. If you ignore the parts of this equation that are not as attractive since they require no action, you’ll quickly see how big a workout mistake and fail this would be towards your results.
