Avoiding injuries is very important during bodybuilding because not only it keeps us fit but also makes us to keep focusing on our exercise and workouts. Most of the guys, when get injured, either lose focus and attention on bodybuilding or leave it altogether. So now question arises, what tips to follow to avoid any injuries in bodybuilding. I am putting a few good tips to follow which are as under:
1- Always warm up your body before starting exercise. It is perhaps the most important of all tips. Warm your body up for 2-3 minutes before starting your exercise because it prepares your body for heavy exercise ahead. You can simply stretch your body and do some jumping to get it warm. If you just enter the gym and start your exercise right away, you are in for a great chance to get injured J.
2- Make sure you do not over train your body either by not taking proper rest after the workouts during the day or by lifting beyond your capacity. If you are training a particular muscle or group more number of times a week than what is desired, you are over training again. Best is to train your muscles in groups by performing compound exercises and keep in mind that 2 times training any muscle per week is sufficient for it. So in a nutshell, focus on compound exercises and do not try to train any muscle more than twice a week. Take good rest to make sure you provide time to your body for growth and repair.
3- If you feel that you are not comfortable to perform certain exercises alone, you must take help from your partner to make sure you do exercise easily. It is advisable to have a partner on permanent basis so that you can perform well in the gym.
4- Try to perform exercise in correct manner. It doesn’t matter at all if you are unable to lift heavy or do more reps while doing your exercise correctly. Performing exercise correctly is more important because your stamina will eventually build.
So follow all these tips to keep yourself away from injuries. Happy bodybuilding
