Tips & Tricks for Getting the Most Out of Your Workout
With all of these exercises, you will want to start light and slow with a small range of motion. As you get more comfortable with the movements, you can then begin increasing the number of reps and range of motion. You should never try to “max out” on any of these exercises the first few times around, but instead get your body used to this type of resistance gradually over a few workouts with time and rest to recover in between. Each exercise can be adjusted over time to help you from plateauing and also keep your gains constant.
