- Warm-up slowly for however long as it takes. Lots of people think a warm-up set—as in one easy set—is enough. It’s not. Take as long as you need to warm-up properly until everything feels smooth throughout a motion.
- Form is always top priority. If you can’t do an exercise right, don’t do it at all. Don’t add any weight until you’re completely comfortable.
- If something feels awkward, stop. Too many people think it’s natural for something to feel “weird” in their muscle or joints. It’s not! There is no exercise that is so superior to another that you just “have” to do it to get a good training session in, and there are plenty of movements that will work the same muscle group.
