Do’s and Don’ts For A Gym Regular - GNC India

If you believe in working out regularly to maintain good physical and mental fitness but often wonder if you are doing it the right way, then this article is for you

According to the American Council On Exercise, many gym going regulars tend to do most common mistakes, that can be costly in terms of safety and in achieving fitness.

These following are the highly recommended dos and don’ts for the fitness enthusiasts to follow before hitting the gym.

The Do’s:

Warm Up: Warm up is like a prelude to exercise and it should be done before doing any form of work-out. Gentle movements, stretching, walking, a little jog will loosen and prepare the muscles for a rigorous gym session.

Check Vitals: Many gym regulars do not pay attention to their vital parameters before starting their daily fitness regime. Doctors recommend checking vital parameters like blood pressure, pulse rate and resting heart rate to ensure a smooth workout regime. Slow down your exercise if these vital parameters are not within the normal range.

Eat First: Exercises are a strict no-no on an empty stomach. Good, well-planned diet helps in building muscle and in reducing the fat content. Munch on fruits like bananas, apples or oatmeal at least 30 minutes before hitting the gym to boost energy and fuel muscles for longer hours.

Comfortable Clothes: Wear trendy, comfortable and loose-fitting clothing to feel confident while exercising. Tight garments may restrict the flow of blood supply to muscles and restrict movements.

Set A Routine: Follow a routine while working out at the gym. Start with simple, easy and moderate exercises before going for strength training and cardio. Taking up heavy workouts from the very beginning may cause injuries.

The Don’ts:

Avoid Dehydration: Dehydration can cause major health issues. It is very crucial to stay hydrated while working out and ensure to replenish your body with fluids. Your body would need at least 250 ml of water for every 20 minutes if you are exercising rigorously in a gym.

Don’t Lose Focus: It is very easy to lose focus and interest in the following exercise regimen unless you are very determined. Keep the boredom away by taking up new exercises that will help you focus on overall fitness.

Involve Your Trainer: Don’t neglect the suggestions given by your trainer. Discuss your goals and device a workout plan. Stick to it and don’t change it without the prior permission from your trainer.

Don’t Push Injury: If you are suffering from an injury, sprain or body pain, it’s okay to take a break! Do not try to push yourself if you are unwell as it may lead to bigger health problems.

Don’t Strain: Don’t go overboard with workouts and training. Understand your limitations and discuss it with your trainers. A body needs to rest and recover after heavy muscle workouts. After a weight training session, give a 24-hour gap and take up some cycling or swimming.
