Just like with anything else there are certain rules associated with anything. Exercising or starting workouts is not an exception and there are some standard set of rules that apply to workouts and exercising. When we say exercising we don’t necessarily mean exercising for building muscle or weight loss. Muscle building exercises are just a small set of the entire universe of exercising. You might be exercising for muscle gain/ weight loss/ fitness level/ building stamina/ to cope up with stress, the list goes on and on. Exercising is definitely a panacea to a lot of ailments. Anyhow out here are just a few very briefly illustrated do’s and don’ts of exercising.
#1) Consult your physician or trainer: Yes, this is necessary. Before you beginning your gym membership or starting weight lifting, its important that you consult your physician and take his advice. Might sound an hindrance to your newly found fitness enthusiasm but precaution is better than cure. Let your physician inspect you and provide you with a clear green signal.
#2) Do what you enjoy: Exercising does not implies that you make it a part of your work routine. Their should not be any feeling of monotonic routine associated with it. Exercising should be fun. Take part in things that you enjoy, so if you like swimming more, than go for swimming. Do it regularly as a part of your fitness schedule. Or if you enjoy cycling, then do that. Or, you may find a new partner for jogging in the morning. These are things that will not only make you more fit but will also make your life more enjoyable. Just do it!
#3) Don’t try to be brave: Just note down this key point and you will definitely save on some injuries. If you have gone for your workouts or exercises and find yourself ailing over some muscle pain or joints pain, don’t ignore it. Most of the people experience some kind of pain when they start exercising. A part of it is natural as your muscles start adjusting but that is a very fine threshold. If the pain seems to go past that threshold then get a checkup. You might have strained some muscle, or you might be suffering from something. To ignore this kind of issue would be foolish and you might be preparing yourself for some bigger injury.
