3 Common Workout Mistakes, Manhattan, New York

Exercise is an essential component of living a healthy lifestyle, but when it’s done incorrectly, you may find you’re doing more harm than good. Your technique is a major factor in how effective and safe your workout is, which is why our staff at J Train in New York City advises consulting a personal trainer. Having a guided and monitored workout will ensure you’re performing exercises correctly and help you get the most out of your hard work.

3 Workout Mistakes to Avoid

1. Not Warming Up

Regardless of your experience, warming up is necessary. A full-body stretch is advised, especially in the areas you plan on using the most. A personal trainer may also recommend performing several minutes of cardio to get your heart rate up. This will lead to more fat burn and protect you from injury.

2. Not Following a Fitness Program

Establish a routine for the best results. Whether it’s something you find online or receive from a personal trainer, a fitness program will keep you focused on your short- and long-term fitness goals. Divide your workout to target different parts of the body, and schedule dedicated rest days.

3. Poor Nutrition

Your diet is the most important aspect of working out. Going to the gym on an empty stomach may make your body burn muscle rather than fat. Also, if you’re low on carbohydrates, you won’t have enough energy for intense exercise. You also need to provide your body with sustenance after your workout to stimulate recovery and continued fat burn. 

At J Train, our exercise specialists are dedicated to helping clients reach their goals, offering comprehensive personal training and nutrition services. We build customized workouts based on what you want to achieve. To achieve the best results, call (212) 255-2570 today, and visit our website and Facebook page.
