2. Skipping the warmup
Most young gym jocks feel like Superman the moment they walk into the gym—there’s no muscle strains or joint pain holding them back from attacking the iron. But while it’s tempting to just jump right into your heavy working sets without a good warm up (5 minutes on the treadmill, calisthenics, high-repetition break-in sets), starting cold can come back to haunt you in later years.
Make it a habit to prepare your body for intense exercise, and it will help minimize damage to muscles, tendons and ligaments, allowing you to train “balls to the wall” for as long as you want.
