Physical exercise is meant not only for losing weight, but also for fun and uplifting your mood. If you have made up your mind to hit the gym, you should avoid the common blunders, which can drop down your enthusiasm within a few weeks.

Skipping the pre-workout meals

Even though it is not a good idea to hit the gym with a full stomach, skipping the pre-#workout meals will make you feel weak and inactive. Before an intense workout session, the human body requires the fuel to brace the energy level. If you do not like to eat before exercising, you can grab an easy to digest meal like bread, oatmeal, protein shakes or fruits which will help your body in sustaining the energy.

Do not overdo it

This is perhaps the worst fitness blunder, which majority of the beginners commit to getting a quick result. An overdose of anything is harmful to the health, and that is equally true in case of workout sessions. If you do not have a personal trainer, try to start your #Fitness routine with some light exercises. Checking out the online videos for the beginners can also be very helpful before you start an intense workout session [VIDEO]. Always make sure that you are getting ample rest as your body starts responding to the new changes. Set realistic goals, which can be achieved with consistent workout sessions and it will be easier for you to sustain the routine.

Lack of variety

Try to introduce variation into your exercise routine. Repeating the same set of exercises, again and again, will retard the results as your body gets adjusted to it.

Try to push yourself beyond it by adding some new activities, once you are accustomed to the beginner level. This will help you to reach your goal faster.

Using improper techniques

Incorrect techniques and erroneous planning can lead to serious muscle injuries. In case you are not sure about an exercise or a machine operation, seek help from someone who knows the movement patterns. In most of the cases, people increase the weights and push themselves harder even though they are unable to complete a set. These are the sheer wastage of time and effort. Weight should be increased, only when one finds themselves comfortably performing it, with the maximum range of motion.

Spare your old t-shirts and tight clothes

Leave out your old wretched cotton t-shirts before you head towards the gym. Cotton may absorb your sweat relatively faster, but it takes time to release the moisture. As a result, it can lead to skin irritations and cold. Wear breathable fabrics, which can absorb the sweat away from the skin.

Stop expecting miraculous results in just a few days. If you follow a healthy diet, disciplined exercise routine followed by sufficient sleep, you will notice the changes in some time, and by continuing to do so, you can also maintain your weight in the long run. #Workout Mistakes
