6 Exercise Mistakes Beginners Make

It’s a fact that exercise plays an important role in our life for our general health. But it’s also a fact that often know-how it’s our biggest excuse for not working out. However don’t make this obstacle your excuse. There are so many simple exercises you can perform anywhere with nothing but your body. You only have to avoid these 6 workout mistakes beginners make.

Don’t Forget to Breathe. Breathing right is one important aspect which people often forget to do during exercises, especially beginners. No matter what form of exercise you are performing, simple home workouts, running, lifting, pushing, pulling, breathing is most crucial part of any exercise. Before any exercise take 10 deep breaths and once you have started with working out don’t hold your breath, because it’s never a good thing and it could cause you to faint.

Too much, Too soon. A surprising number of sports injuries have one common cause – trying to do too much, too soon. If you haven’t exercise a long time, or maybe not ever, be realistic about your starting level. It’s better to progress slowly and listen to your body. Don’t stretch too far or don’t lift weights too heavy. Taking more than your body can handle can lead to injury.

Having no Goals. It is clear that too much, too soon for unrealistic goals it’s never good, but having no goals at all won’t do anything for you either over the long term. Start small, but see yourself for 2 months, for 6 months, a year. For example you can start with only 3 push ups and gradually increase the number each week, then change your workout routine, then repeat, the results will come.

Same Workout Routine. Doing variety exercises has a couple of important benefits. It’s the key for growing muscles. If you are doing the same activity all the time, your body gets used to it and becomes very efficient. After a while, that means you are burning fewer calories even when you’re doing the same amount of exercise. Once you have reached a particular goal, make a change in your workout routine, try more complex exercises, it’s also good for your brain.

Lack of Consistency. Great job yesterday, but what about today? Once you get started, don’t quit. Everyone was once a beginner, but you don’t get results from doing nothing.

Afraid to eat after a workout. Exercise put stress on your muscle and bones, so your body use nutrients during workouts. After exercise you should put back what you lost, but that doesn’t mean that you will “eat back” the calories you burn during exercise.
