Simple Workout Tips
Throttle your intensity. Don't go too hard too soon. Try keeping your effort level challenging, but not grueling for the first month.
Work out every other day. Your body needs time to repair your muscles and re-up the stored energy in your cells after a workout.
Warm up the right way. A good warmup is essential to preventing injury. Try to include big movements like downward dog, body-weight squats and glute bridges.
Gear up without going broke. Running shoes typically wear out within six months. But once you've established a go-to shoe, you can often find deals on last season's model on Amazon or other online outlet stores.
Be an underachiever for once. When starting a new fitness routine, it's important to remember that things rarely go as planned. Setting your expectations too high can be discouraging, so as you think about your goals for the next week, month, and beyond, do a reality check.
