    Skipping post-workout stretching: Stretching after a workout helps prevent muscle soreness and promotes flexibility. Take 5-10 minutes to stretch the muscle groups you worked during your workout.

    Not staying hydrated: Dehydration can lead to decreased performance and increase the risk of injury. Drink water before, during, and after your workout to stay hydrated.

    Overdoing it: Starting a new workout routine with too much intensity can lead to injury and burnout. Gradually increase the intensity and duration of your workouts to allow your body to adjust.

    Not getting enough rest: Rest and recovery are just as important as the actual workout. Give your body time to recover by taking rest days and getting enough sleep.

    Not tracking progress: Tracking your progress helps you see how far you’ve come and identify areas where you can improve. Keep a workout journal or use a fitness tracking app to record your progress.

    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.
