Mistake 3: Not training your legs
Performing leg exercises before arm exercises can lead to bigger and stronger arms than arm exercises alone, Norwegian researchers found in an 11-week study. Immediately after research subjects trained their legs, they had more testosterone and growth hormone in their blood—by training arms afterward, they enjoyed superior results.
Make sure to blast your legs with heavy exercises like squats, deadlifts, and lunges to elevate your anabolic hormone concentration. Training your legs not only leads to acute hormonal increases, it also leads to higher levels long-term.
