Is that gym-toned beautiful-bod eluding you no matter what you try? Everyone from complete newbies to seasoned veterans can make mistakes in the gym without even realising it – here are seven of the worst that you need to avoid.

You might enjoy a few weeks or even months of pound shedding and muscle building, but eventually this repetition will be your downfall as your body adapts to it and starts to burn less energy.
