Never Make These Mistakes at the Gym

Slide 1 of 10
Start With Cardio

Every effective workout program should incorporate both cardio and strength training. But what many gym-goers may not know is that most times it’s more efficient to complete the weight-lifting portion of your workout before expending the majority of your energy on cardiovascular exercise. When lifting weights precision and form are extremely important, if your body is already tired from a cardio session your performance while strength training might suffer. If you perform your cardio routine before lifting weights, your strength training session will likely feel more difficult and your risk of injury will increase, too.
