Here is a list of some of the most common mistakes that are made when working out and hopefully you can avoid making these same mistakes.

1. Not stretching properly or enough before starting your workout

2. Not warming up properly before exercising

3. Not cooling down properly after exercising

4. Trying to lift more weight than you can handle and not using proper form

5. Working out too intensely for the level you should be at

6. Not drinking enough water 

7. When using aerobic machines like the stair stepper and walkers, you lean too heavily on the handrails.

8. Dogging it. Just hanging out at the gym to say you go to the gym and therefore you don’t workout at the intensity that you should in order to receive the benefit.

9. Consuming too many calories before a short low level intensity workout

10.Not using proper form and using momentum or swinging the weights to perform the exercise
