While it might seem that working out is healthy in all manners but with such tragic news coming in frequently of suffering a heart attack at the gym, it is very skeptical to stand up to this point. There are certainly some tips and rules to follow while working out, especially for those over 40 years of age. Read the below mentioned points below to ensure that you are following a safe work out procedure to avoid any kind of injuries.
Tips to follow for safe work out
- Cool down properly and take a break for 5 to 10 minutes in between.
- Start your work out procedure slowly and gain pace gradually.
- Training too hard might cause stress fractures, stiff or sore joints and muscles, and inflamed tendons and ligaments. It is recommended to try a mix of different kinds of activities and take sufficient rest as well.
- If you are sick or tired, hold back and take a rest instead of doing work outs.
- Replace your shoes every 6 months once cushioning wears out. Choose clothes and shoes which are fit for your exercise type.
- To avoid hypothermia (a medical emergency that occurs when your body loses heat faster than it can produce heat, causing a dangerously low body temperature), dress properly during winters and do not forget to wear gloves.
- Keep an eye on signs of overheating, such as headache, dizziness, nausea, faintness, cramps, or palpitations.
- While learning the exercises, either use no weight or opt for very light weights.
- Along with water, have drinks that replace fluids plus essential electrolytes.
