Do not forget to warm-up first:
You are not supposed to begin your work out session without having a warm-up routine. These warm-up routines are expected to dynamic. At the same time, do not spend a lot of time to warm up your body. As a gym person, you are expected to know the ideal quantum. Do not overstrain yourself to an extent where warm-up becomes your exercise routines. In any case, warm up is a must, it relaxes your muscles and makes them flexible.
Do not work out after eating:
Most exercise habits are to be done when you are on an empty stomach or at least when your belly is not full. Working out after a full meal is not a healthy habit. It might either collapse your system or cause to you throw up quickly. Also, the effect of working out stays and you get to enjoy the benefits of working out only when you do it before having food. So do get into a workout with a full belly. Rely on a liquid diet to meet your energy requirements.
Do not step in without a plan:
If you are hitting the gym during the weekends or if you are planning to stay a little longer, you are expected to step in with a plan. Of course, there are trainers at the gym to assist you but you know what your goal is and you are expected to plan accordingly. You are not supposed to rely completely on the trainer, and there are many people he might have to handle many people on one go, and he is probably not your personal trainer as well.
Do not be tough on yourself:
If you are a beginner, we understand that your new found gym interests are bubbling and brimming but still go easy on yourself for the first few days. Take one equipment at a time and do not walk straight to dumbbells or other tough machines. Increase the usage gradually so you will not realize the difficulty of working out. Also when you are weightlifting make sure you have a trainer to assist you, do not do it alone.
Don’t pretend as you know it all:
Do not hesitate to ask people around if you do not know something. If not your co-trainee, you can at least approach the trainers present there. Remember they are employed there only to help you out. When your query is genuine, or you need their assistance with regard to any work out tip or accessing a machine, you can always feel free to ask them.
