When you hear the word rookie, what do you think? What initially pops into your head?
You probably think of a beginner or novice athlete, or someone in their first year on the job, like a rookie police officer.
Or, maybe you think of the baseball movie with Dennis Quaid, isn't that called The Rookie? It has been 15 years since I have seen it but, I thought it was pretty good. I am a sucker for a sports movie.
Regardless, when you hear the word rookie, you also probably think of the expression, "rookie mistake."
That is what we are going to focus on today, specifically, five rookie powerlifting mistakes.
1: Trying to hit unrealistically big PRs at the meet.
2: Doing too much or too little hypertrophy work.
3: Overvaluing the program.
4: Not competing frequently enough.
5: Not thinking enough about longevity.
Although I call these rookie mistakes, these mistakes are not limited to rookies.
Sit back, relax, and enjoy!
