How To Avoid Exercise Mistakes At the Gym

Most people want to get fit and toned, and some spend hours in the gym, but never experience results. The reason: exercises are being performed improperly. Good technique is important to avoid exercise mistakes, which make workouts ineffective and may lead to injury.

Avoid Exercise Mistakes

Every exercise session should start with a warm-up, include breaks for rest and water, and conclude with a cool down. This pattern ensures muscles are not overworked and dehydration is prevented.

Dehydration may lead to serious consequences. Staying hydrated may even promote weight loss.

Another common exercise mistake is poor or improper form. When exercises are done incorrectly, the wrong muscles are developed, causing a type of muscular imbalance. Bad form and bad exercise habits can also lead to injuries such as torn ligaments and pulled muscles.
