Know your body
Knowing when things feel good and are right is a good thing, but also knowing when an exercise is wrong for you and when your body has a negative reaction is also important. Every exercise and every weight workout is not meant for everyone.
Make sure that you have a balance of water and electrolytes in your body to aide the workout and recovery process.
Don’t over exert yourself, no pain, no gain is good however, don’t do more than your recovery day or days can handle. If you can do ten or more of any exercise workout, then it’s time to move up to the next level.
Know your exercises and routine, what they do, what is the buildup area and what the results should be.
Be as technical as possible
Stay within the instructional technique as much as possible to avoid injury and unnecessary soreness.
Set reachable goals, this will help boost your confidence and help your motivation to keep going and move higher.
