Not warming up properly: Before engaging in any workout, it’s essential to warm up to prevent injury and improve performance. A simple solution is to do 5-10 minutes of light cardio such as jogging or cycling, followed by dynamic stretching.
Not varying your workout routine: Doing the same exercises repeatedly can lead to boredom and plateaus in progress. Mixing up your routine with different exercises and increasing the intensity or weight used can help challenge your muscles and keep progress going.
Not using the proper form: Using proper form helps prevent injury and ensures you’re targeting the intended muscle groups effectively. Ask a trainer for help or watch online tutorials to learn proper form for exercises.
