4 Tips For Exercise Beginners

Are you about to start a new exercise routine? Never really done formal exercise before, beyond what you might get walking around during the day, or during your gym class in school? Exercise is good for you, but it is essential for you to take care of yourself before you exercise, during the activity itself, as well as afterwards if you want to reap the rewards and not suffer from extreme injuries. To that end, here are four key tips for exercise beginners:

Ease Into It

Do not try to do everything immediately. You will need to work up to your ideal fitness level, in all likelihood. Starting too much too soon can only result in injuries, and if you are not careful may put an end to your exercising entirely. Thus, we suggest exercise beginners think about a progression plan. Consider your end goal and the steps you need to take along the way to get there. Give yourself weeks to progress, potentially even months if you dream of being in the conditions of a professional athlete and you have not exercised too much before.

Learn From Mistakes

If you do injure yourself or make another mistake in your exercise routine, remember to learn from it! For instance, if you were following your progression plan but still injured yourself because of overwork, consider adjusting and slowing things down after your injury heals completely. Learning from your mistakes helps reduce the likelihood of them happening again—this can only benefit you moving forward.

Stay Hydrated

Drinking water throughout the day regardless of your activities is important. However, if you are going to exercise and you will end up sweating, it is important to drink even more water to replace what you are losing with your physical exertion. Our advice is to fill a water bottle and keep it next to you while you exercise. You can take occasional breaks during your workout to sip on the water.

Change It Up

We highly recommend changing up the exercise you do every so often. This performs several functions for you. One, it workouts out different muscles so no one group will become overworked and injured. It also helps build your fitness evenly, so for instance your arms would not be infinitely stronger than your legs.
