Why Should You Build a Good Foundation for Strength Workouts?
Strength training, also known as weight or resistance training, is a physical activity designed to improve muscular fitness by exercising a specific muscle or muscle group against external resistance, including free weights, weight machines, or your own body weight. When lifting weights, you put your body through stress and if done incorrectly, it could lead to injuries. Therefore, it becomes extremely important to have a solid foundation for strength training. Watch this video to know how to do it right.
1. Study your movements. Learn your exercises and their correct form. Repeat as many times as you can to build a strong foundation.
2. Do not add too many weights too quickly. Spend a good amount of time in a particular exercise before you move on to the next, correcting your form and technique as you progress.
3. Listen to your body. Take a step back, rest, recover and come back on days when you are not able to perform your best.
All this will help you build a strong foundation for your strength training and help you perform better in your workouts.
