Before beginning your training, it is important to warm-up to prepare your body for exercising. Warming up for 5 to 10 minutes will help you avoid straining your muscles during your exercising routine.
Concentrate on form, not on weight
Concentrating on your form and body alignment is crucial at the beginning stages of your resistance training exercises. It is important that you develop and practice the proper technique and form for your various exercises before adding additional weight. This will help you control the muscles and familiarize your body with the new moves you are doing and prevent injury while training. After you feel comfortable with your form and lifting light, then you can move on to more challenging movements and heavier equipment.
