What are the Do’s and Don’ts of exercise/working out?

Whether you’ve been working out for two weeks or two decades, here are some exercise do’s and don’ts for everyone

Some do’s which I recommend are

Exercise everyday.
Yes.. everyday! If you workout at the gym 5-6 days of the week, the other 1 or 2 days make sure you take a walk for a minimum of 30minutes.

Warm up!
Its very important to warm up before you start your exericse.. it can either be cycling before a leg workout.. or just a walk on the treadmill on the upper body workout days

Set new goals
This way you can challenge yourself and keep yourself motivated to push harder.

Breathe!
To improve your performance, focus on breathing.

Do exercises you hate
Yes! U should do them.. people don’t like to struggle with things they aren’t naturally good at, so they avoid the exercises that really challenge them. They might help you build a better and stronger body.

Workout with someone once a week
Sometimes working out with a friend is more fun than working out alone. If you don’t have someone to workout with, join a group class. Its a good change to your normal workout routine.

drink lots of water before, during and after your workout.

Do cool down after exercising to relax your muscles and gradually lower your heart rate.

DON’TS
Don’t begin exercising without warming up first to prepare your body and mind.

Don’t try to race someone or get competitive when you are just starting out – you’ll risk injury.

Don’t obsess over weight loss; concentrate on getting fit and using energy, and the weight loss will come in time.

Don’t let yourself get bored – add new activities to your routine.

Don’t forget about good nutrition. Eat a variety of foods every day, color your plate with as many different vegetables and fruits and consider supplements to ensure complete nutrition and attain your optimal health.

And don’t just rely on cardio for loosing weight , a properly planned exercise regime will include weight training and cardio both to achieve fitness goals.
