A few keys to remember:
· Progress gradually. Don’t try to do too much too soon. Listen to your body. When you need a rest, rest.
· A solid program must train both the upper and lower body.
· Know why you are performing each exercise. Set goals and lift weights because you want to, not because someone wants you to.
· Always breathe during a repetition and go through a full range of motion.
· Always consult with your family doctor before beginning any new exercise program.
