7:22 Programming Mistake #1: The Program Hopper
12:08 Rob weights in on how coaches can motivate their clients, especially when the results are not as fast as they would like.
14:50 Programming Mistake #2: Not taking enough rest days. De-load weeks are just as important as training; your body needs to recover from the strain.
20:21 Rob mentions that sometimes everyone can get caught up with worrying about the weight on the bar instead of worrying about the quality of the movement.
21:14 Programming Mistakes #3: Don’t max out every day.
24:20 The mental side of lifting is just as important as building actual physical strength.
26:12 Programming Mistake #4: Not following the program.
