6 Terrible Workout Mistakes To Avoid As Per Bodybuilders

Buff Dudes from YouTube, also known as Brandon and Hudson White brothers, have carved out an online niche as coaches and producers of content on all things fitness and wellness — but they didn't always realize what they were doing. During a recent interview, the Buff Dudes looked back on their successes and failures when they first started to work out and shared what they wished they learned.

Showing Off To Others

Brandon remembers one incident from behind when he took high school weight training classes which taught him the dangers of lifting too much, too early. It suggested trying to please a beautiful girl. "She was cute, so I went ahead and put on 100 kg, my full weight, which was a lot for me," he says. "I felt pretty good, I felt pretty sure I could do it, but I put it down as soon as I drained the bar and I couldn't bring it back up ... it was a very humiliating moment."

He was fortunate enough to have a friend catching him, so nothing went too wrong but Brandon is conscious that if performed without proper preparation and technique, "ego lifting" may trigger significant long-term injury. "It's all about getting down the right shape, and moving slowly," he says.

No Dietary Planning

When Hudson first went into school, he would do hard workouts and lots of exercises, and eat the right stuff, just in too much. "I made no progress and it demotivated me," he says. "Then I started to track my calories, track my macronutrients, and when I started moderating those, it really helped me out and I had the best results I 'd ever had ... Note, just because you're eating good, you could always eat too much."

Slipping Away Muscle Groups

It can be all too easy to stick to the common and simple workouts, says Brandon, and miss entire areas of the body that feel harder or require a greater amount of discomfort. He says, "Do not be afraid to try and struggle. "Failure can be very good for you because you're improving from there and you're just getting better. The problem is the more you ignore those things, the worse the imbalances continue to get ... down the track, the more effort it'll be to catch up."

Being Inconsistent, or Being Overtrained

"Working out is not easy, and you sometimes think you need to take a break from that after you've been doing it for a while," says Hudson. "My problem was that I would binge on working out, then detox myself, and it wasn't healthy, so I began to find that a yo-yo effect was happening. I would get in good shape, I would get out of shape, so I would have to work twice as hard to get back into shape." While he's still listening to his body and taking breaks from time to time to allow recovery, Hudson has managed to develop more discipline and philosophy.

On the other end of the spectrum is Brandon, who admits he's been "addicted" to working out every day and not taking the time off to heal his muscles. "No, you don't get the results from weights lifting, you get the results after weights lifting," he says. "The rest, the recovery, that helps you get those results ... Overtraining is definitely a real thing, and how you progress can be pretty detrimental."

Neither Having A Timetable

"It can be a lot easier to have a common target and a plan to execute," Brandon says. "You can then walk into the gym, you know exactly what you're doing, what you're going to do, so you can get even more results because of that."

Comparing Yourself To Others

Everyone's fitness journey is different, and one lesson Hudson had to learn early was to avoid chasing what other people looked like and set his own expectations for his own body that would be practical and achievable. "In your own way, you might look amazing," he says. "You may be inspired by them but you will never be a carbon copy of them."

He acknowledges that the first time walking into a gym can be an intimidating experience, but he says it's important to remember that everyone there is working on their own. There was nobody around to judge him. "Focus on yourself, and take the time to grow."
