Both bodybuilding and weightlifting need to be done correctly because if done in a wrong manner, you may become victim of different injuries and your program may be destroyed. So this article focuses to avoid common bodybuilding/weightlifting injuries- common mistakes in gym.
You might have heard many bodybuilders of weightlifters to complain about back injuries. Why is that? We believe that most of the bodybuilders and weightlifters have strong muscles and they should not have any back problems because of stronger muscles. Then why do you hear them having back injuries. The reason is that they have to do extensive weightlifting during their workouts and as a result, their muscles and joints undergo a great wear and tear. So important thing is to perform these workouts in a correct way. You should focus on doing exercise correctly rather than just doing it. A gym trainer must be consulted to know the exact way of doing workouts and then gradually adding weights. Correct way is important even if you are making low repetitions initially.
Other reason is trying to lift very heavy weights too early in your bodybuilding period. You must lift the weights that you can lift easily without getting into too much trouble. Over lifting is not going to help you in any case and may result injuries. As a result, you will start losing instead of gaining good physique.
Another important thing is that you must take into consideration weather conditions. During hot weather, you should be taking in plenty of water to make sure that you do not get dehydrated. During exercise, our body sweats a lot and therefore water should be taken in greater amounts.
Warming your body before doing any workouts is very important. This actually prepares your body to undergo exercise workouts. Normally 3-5 minutes warming up is sufficient before you get into exercise.
