Skipping your warmup
Warming up increases your body temperature, loosens muscles, and gives your cardiovascular system time to adjust to increased demands. This reduces overall stress on your body, helps increase performance
Not having a workout plan
Having a workout plan will save you time and provide you with better results. If you don’t have a plan, you’re likely to waste time or take longer on your exercise routine than you need to. Most of all, people without plans will almost certainly underperform because they haven't committed to the goals that a plan has been created to meet.
Doing the same workouts every day
The human body is remarkably good at adapting. This amazing feat from your body may also frustrate you when your fitness goals start to plateau. Implement new exercise and workout regimes to keep your body challenged.
It’s important to take a break between sets, but don’t let your body cool down too much. You want to keep your heart rate elevated, and that means limiting breaks to 30 seconds or less. (So no texting, emailing, or online shopping!)
Having strength but not flexibility or lifting too heavy
Stretching your muscles after a workout helps them repair faster, so you can build strength and get to your next workout faster
There’s a common misconception that you can achieve faster results by pushing yourself with heavier weights. This is not always the case. To prevent injuries, you want to lift the proper amount of weight. If you’re breaking form, you’re lifting too heavy. Start with a lower weight and increase it as you notice your body can handle more.
