Beginners Workout Tips – Gary Ferone

When beginning an exercise program, it is very important to pace yourself and not risk injury by overexerting yourself from the get go especially if it has been a while since you worked out.

Start slow: Do not just jump right in and start exercising five days a week because that is a recipe for disaster and it is better that one gradually work up to exercising several days per week while he or she see how the body responds.

Know when to stretch: Stretching right before a workout can seem like the best thing to do but one might be putting himself or herself at risk of injury.

Mix it up: Whether one is going for weight loss or bulking up, a mixed regimen of aerobic and strength training is the best way to achieve the body he or she wants but even within those categories, donot stick to the same exercises every day.

Know theweight and the right way to use it: Most people are confused the first time they walk into a gym but are afraid of asking for advice.

Know when to take a break: When people start out, they are often overzealous and try to get to the gym every day and by not letting the body rest, he or she can be doing much more harm than good
