 =================================

❌ The first day you step into the gym and you will be getting a lot of opinion from people around the gym about taking Fat burning supplements, weight gaining supplements etc . 

Fat burners and weight gaining supplements is a big NO ❌❌

Please do not take suggestions or opinions from people who direct you to take these supplements which are not worth spending money on . 

What you should do here ? 

Understand the science!! 

Understand how weight loss and weight gain works . What is caloric deficit and what is calorie surplus . What would be you maintainence and bmr calories. !! 

✅ TRUST QUANTIFIED NUTRITION !! 

❌ People telling you that woman should do cardio and you would be sent to a treadmill machine !! 

Lifting weights are not only for men. Women can lift them too and infact I strongly believe woman Lift a lot better than men .

And women won’t become bulky if they lift weights 

✅ If somebody tell you this please run away from Him / her in the gym and don’t seek any advice or opinion from them.

❌ Do not directly rush into compound lifts . 

✅ Try to stick machine exercises for few weeks to just get a hang of it once you understand the form then you can slowly move into free weights. 

❌ I have seen people in the gym doing cardio in the beginning for around 30 mins and then Coming for weight training sessions with low energies . 

✅ Keep your weight training as the priority and cardio can be done post workout so that you can put a lot more energy when training with weights. 

❌ This is a very common mistake people do that they feel low on energy so they have some juice or snack rite before their workout . 
Which is fine if the juice/snack is  included in your diet

✅ I would recommend to give atleast 30-40 mins of gap between your workout session and your snack to avoid uneasiness while working out. 


I hope this post was of some use for the beginners in the group !! 

Have a great weekend !!
