The willingness to improve your physique and go to the gym means a lot. In many cases, it takes genuine courage to step far beyond your comfort zone. Initially, doing anything is enough to see the first results, but such a strategy will quickly become ineffective. To maximize your results at the gym, you should know what to avoid. Here are common mistakes made at the gym that hinder your progress.
Whey protein, often referred to simply as protein, is probably the most popular supplement among gym-goers.
