What You Should Avoid When Working Out

As humans we make mistakes, but some mistakes can cause you to get hurt and recovering can belong. Being healthy doesn’t mean you won’t ever have to go to the hospital. Also, having muscle doesn’t mean you won’t break anything. When your training your body, it is very important you know what you doing. It can take months or years for you to recover, and when your done healing all that work can mean nothing. Here is some advice I would like to share based on my personal experiences.

DON’T FORGET TO STRETCH, this is very important before working out. Before doing any type of workout, you should stretch your muscles. This can also be applied when you get up in the morning. The last thing you want to do while training, is to pull a muscle. I would rate the pain a solid 10, it hurts that bad. The other downside is it doesn’t just go away in a day. It can take weeks before you can be back to normal. By you stretching you are less likely to pull a muscle. I didn’t say you won’t, because you still can from doing this—topic in the next paragraph. Stretching also allows your blood to flow throughout your body. Its a sense of relaxation and gives you focus on what your about to do. A good stretch allows me to work out a little longer and adds a little more reps to get burn.

The next thing you don’t want to do is START OFF LIFTING HEAVY. This can also cause you to pull a muscle. But what’s even worse, your body can just give out. Like I mention before you should get that blood flowing, heart pumping and mind converged. Also, you can expect to see slower gains. When you start off small your still going to get to that heavyweight. When you do that burn is 10 x more than the other routine. If you start off with your max, you’re stuck there. You’re not going to expect a jump in one day. Its a process you take in order to get there. Most importantly, you just don’t want to drop the weight on your self due to you not warming up, I seen it happen.

My last advice, for now, DON’T REPEAT YOUR WORKOUT THE FOLLOWING DAY. You can stretch, and start off light, but doing this will also slow your gains. I would only do this if I’m trying to lose weight cause you want to burn all calories. But if you’re trying to look like a superhero. Dividing your workouts at different intervals gives you healing time and muscle targeting. Repeating your workouts the following day allows your muscles to adapt to the way you work out. You want to always go to your muscles from a different angle. There are many workouts to execute for every muscle.

Thanks for reading, the advice is based on my personal experiences. I am not an expert, I love sharing, because sharing is caring.
