Mistake #2: Going “too hard, too soon”
This is a very common mistake. The resulting stress on your muscles can cause you to be so sore that you cannot move and might not be able to finish out the week’s workouts. Not only will your body not be able to recover properly, but working out can become mentally draining and discouraging. This is a big problem when one of the most important aspects of beginning a fitness journey is consistency.
You have to learn to enjoy the process. If you lose your motivation before you even start, you will never achieve your goal. Also, if you are not ready for that level of difficulty, injury can occur. This can set you back or cause you to quit altogether. Make sure to ease into any fitness journey. Start out focusing more on bodyweight exercises, smaller durations of cardio, and flexibility/mobility. Then, work your way into weighted exercises or longer durations of cardio.
