Avoid 5 common beginner workout mistakes

  1. 1. AVOID 5 COMMON BEGINNER WORKOUT MISTAKES D A V I D J E A N S O N N E | D A V I D J E A N S O N N E . C O M
  2. 2. TAKE IT SLOW Doing too much too soon can not only be dangerous, but you could easily lose you motivation to keep it up.  Adopting it into your life and schedule is going to take some baby-steps.  Too much too soon can lead to serious injury and doesn’t allow a safe rate of adaptation. To avoid this, take things slow and gradually build up over your fitness plan.
  3. 3. LISTEN TO YOUR BODY Its normal to feel a bit of soreness and discomfort when just starting a new workout plan, but many beginners make the mistake of ignoring the other serious pains that may accompany the new routine.  If the aches and pains intensify, listen to your body and take a break for awhile. Ignoring this pains and continuing your workout will lead to worse injuries and will definitely take more than a couple days to recover from.
  4. 4. PICK THE RIGHT SHOES Getting the right shoes or footwear and regularly replacing them can prevent injury. Depending on the workouts you do will determine the support you need. Going for a run and participating in a studio fitness class require two completely different types of footwear.
  5. 5. KEEP TRACK OF YOUR PROGRESS Take notes of the exercises you did, the weights you used, and how many reps you did. It’s also a good idea to track your physique by taking pictures and doing weigh-ins. By keeping track of your progress, you can see if you should make any changes if no improvements were made or to keep doing what you’re doing if you plan has been successful.
  6. 6. HAVE A PLAN To get the best out of your fitness journey, you need to have a workout plan.  Avoid roaming aimlessly around the gym wondering what to do next by finding a beginner’s program online or from a personal trainer to get you started. By having a plan to follow, you’ll have an easier time keeping track of your progress and following a program helps to stay motivated from week to week.
