FOR TEENS BEFORE THEY HIT THE GYM

GYM
Written by Shruti Shree

Getting out of bed and going to the gym is not an easy work for the beginners. Going to the gym once is definitely a great start, but any positive changes cannot be seen in the mind and body unless hitting the gym is not made a habit.

Nowadays, teenagers are becoming fitness conscious and are hitting the gym at an early age but in excitement, they end up harming their own body.

So here are 6 must-read tips for the beginners:

1)FOCUS ON BREATHING-

BREATHING

Breathing can make or break any fitness activity. Breathe out on the exertion part of the activity. Wrong breathing may lead to fainting and no result can be seen in the body.

2)WATCH YOUR LIFTS-

LIFTING

Beginners often learn by watching others, but if they are copying someone doing wrong lifts, they also do it wrong. Trying to lift too much weight too soon leads to muscle pain and cramps.

3)DON’T DO CHEST EXERCISES EVERYDAY-

CHEST EXERCISE

Doing the chest exercises every day is one of the worst habits teenage boys get into and by the time they are in their 20s their chest muscles get over developed which gives them a look of 30s.

4)POSTURE PERFECT-

POSTURE

Always watch your posture during lifts. How your spine is set during the lifts has a great impact on your posture formation and as well as how much weight you are able to lift.

5)OVER TRAINING- 

OVER TRAINING

Being a teen, the energy level is at its peak. They never get tired once they are in the gym and work out on the same muscle for hours. These acts will not see any gain in the body.

6)SLEEP-

SLEEP

Sleep is very essential form of recovery that the body needs. During sleep, recovery and muscle building process takes place. The muscle needs 72 hours of rest before hitting that muscle again in the gym. Teens need an 8 hour nights’ rest for maximum recovery and growth.
