Check out this great guest post and infographic by Sean Farrell and Health Perch discussing important tips to avoid the top 5 weight-lifting mistakes in order to keep your body feeling the benefits of your workouts.
Quality over quantity applies to almost everything — including exercise. You can slog in the gym all day, but without rhyme or reason, it’s unlikely that you’ll get the results you want. In fact, you may even get hurt.
Weight-lifting mistakes can lead to aches, pains, and injuries. That physical toll on your body after a workout that lasts for days? While some soreness is normal, a proper routine that warms up the right muscles and incorporates exercises which prepare you for daily activities can help you build a strong, functional body without pain or injury. Anyone can lift, but knowing how that weight contributes to what you want to achieve is essential to progress. Whether you’re a gym rookie or junkie, work smarter — not harder. Read the graphic below to learn how to avoid some of the most common weightlifting mistakes.
I hope you enjoyed this great guest post and infographic and would love to hear your feedback!
Wishing you a great workout!
