Fitness safety tips for beginners.

Before you hit the gym or decide to start your own exercise regime at home, it is always good to review some basic safety tips. You might think that your body is ready to take on the strain, but doing too much suddenly can cause sprains and other such injuries. Take some time to read these precautions to avoid any injuries on your road to fitness.

Pay a visit to the doctor

If you have not worked out or exercised in a long time, it is advisable to check in with your doctor to ensure that your heart and body are in sound shape to support exercise. Doing this will also give you added assurance that you can work out without any hassles, and gradually push yourself to increase your exercise time. Your doctor will also be able to suggest a fitness regime that you can do without putting too much strain on your body at once.

Warm up and cool down

This is one of the most important things to keep in mind. Before you start exercising you must warm up. Exercising without warming up can lead to injuries. You should begin with a five-minute warm-up and stretch period that consists of light walking, biking or some form of activity coupled with stretches for the major muscle groups, such as the calves, quadriceps (front of the legs), back, triceps and shoulders.

Similarly, once you finish working out it is necessary to cool down. How does cooling down help? It prevents muscle soreness, and ensures that your heart rate is at an acceptable level to cease exercising. If you do not cool down properly, it might cause a cardiac-related outcome, like fainting. Once you finish exercising, cool down by walking and doing gentle stretches. If you do very strenuous exercises, you can cool by doing a slow jog and loosening your muscles.

Always remember to stretch before you start your workout.

Build up your fitness levels

As mentioned earlier, you might be very enthusiastic to see how much you can push your body on the first day itself. But keep in mind that your body will not be able to achieve this, so start off with moderate-level exercises that your body can keep up with. Some of the things you can do are cycling, swimming and brisk walking. Try and include some form of resistance activity like lifting weights. Again, start with smaller weights and gradually increase as your fitness levels build up.

In addition to this, staying hydrated is very important. However wrapped up you get in your fitness regime always remember to drink plenty of water. Drink a lot of fluids before, during and after you workout.
