Arnold Schwarzenegger discussed the most common fitness blunder in a 2015 interview with Bodybuilding.com. He emphasized the widespread practice of merely going through the motions without fully engaging the muscle. He says that concentrating on the muscle being worked is crucial for progress.

“I think the biggest mistake is that you go to the gym and you go through the motion but you don’t really have your mind inside the muscle. So when you do a biceps curl and think ‘I can’t just stand there like this’ (demonstrates how to do the exercise). Yeah, you can. I’ve seen the guys with training me, also four hours a day, five hours a day. But they look like sh*t. And why did they look like sh*t, it’s because they didn’t concentrate.”

He continued by saying he knows people who work out for hours daily but don’t appear to have changed. This occurs because they are not giving their full attention to the muscle group they are trying to develop.

Schwarzenegger emphasizes sleep to increase muscle mass alongside the mind-muscle connection. Muscle growth depends on the body’s ability to repair and regenerate muscle tissue while sleeping. The stress hormone cortisol breaks down muscle tissue, and its levels can rise if you don’t get enough sleep.
