Warm up & cool down

Cold muscles are less flexible and are more prone injuries. Therefore, you should not miss warming up. Cooling down is also as important as a warming up.

Set realistic goals 

It doesn't always imply that you can still perform that difficult lift or run just because you could a month ago when you last trained. Be honest with yourself about your existing abilities and start out cautiously.

Poor form, particularly when lifting weights, might result in severe injuries. Take the time to master good form at the start of a new exercise routine.

Listen to the pain

Some pains and aches can be more serious than soreness. Give those muscles a break if something bothers you.

Eat right

Overall fitness and workout performance are equally as dependent on a healthy diet and eating at strategic times before and after workouts.

Go slow

Progressive development is the most crucial component of injury prevention. Take your time and gradually increase the intensity, especially if you've been spending a lot of time on the sofa.
