|Tips on resistance training:
- Remember to breathe!
- Perform all movements slowly with controlled motion.
- Stay within ranges of motion that are comfortable for your joints. If a certain movement causes discomfort, shorten the range of motion.
- Choose a weight that feels comfortable for you, especially in the beginning. You want to be able to complete your set, while keeping proper form, with a small amount of muscle burn and fatigue. Don’t overdo it. As you progress in your exercise regimen and get stronger, you will be able to work harder and handle more weight.
