5 Terrible Errors In Your Home Workout And How To Fix Them

If you have ever had a grueling workout in your garage, you are aware that, given what some people might say, at-home workouts are no walk in the park. They 're not always better in the house, depending on the workouts you 're performing.

Although at-home workouts have a reputation for being simpler and cheaper than in-gym workouts, this is not always the case. Avoid these five can error during your next at-home workout to remain healthy and injury-free.

1. You'll Miss the Warm-up

It's quick to skip through or totally forget your warm-up if you're used to working out at the gym or going to community fitness classes. But that could leave you tired, achy, or even wounded.

"An absence of proper warm-up is one of the most common errors I see with at-home workouts," says Jereme Schumacher, a physical therapist at Bespoke Treatments. "Warming is important to ensure the body is primed and ready to execute the exercise movements. You are at greater risk of injury without a proper warm-up."

      • Perform at least two minutes of light exercise to increase your heart rate, and strengthen your muscles for work. And follow it up with some drills on versatility. If you're unsure of what to do during your warm-up, begin with some slow and regulated body-weight movements, replicating workout exercises, Schumacher says. 

For example, if a chest press and squat are involved in your dumbbell workout, warm up with a few rounds of push-ups and body-weight squats.

2. You may not have a Workout Schedule

Staying motivated is a big obstacle for others when they're doing home exercise. But if you do not step into your workout with a strong strategy, your lack of motivation can be much worse.

When people go to an unplanned exercise session, they usually stick to a workout routine they've done in the past, says Schumacher. Over time, consistently doing the same moves can lead to overuse injuries. However, if you stick to the same routine time and time again you probably won't make much improvement.

      • Consider breaking your body parts into your routines. "I usually recommend switching between the upper and lower bodies every day for home workouts," says Schumacher. Have a schedule at the beginning of each week and the activities differ over time.

3. Your Workout is too Complicated

Working out with minimal equipment at home will certainly become monotonous. But you don't want to go too far in the other direction and still build a complicated schedule, close to having no workout plan.

A little innovation in your workout routine is not a bad thing, but you don't want to fill your entire workout session with complicated social media-inspired workouts, particularly if they go beyond your current level of fitness, Schumacher said.

"When these moves are too complicated for you or you lack the correct set-up, it can easily lead to injuries or incidents that occur during your workout," he says.

      • Try mixing up the reps or adding speed instead of searching for complicated movements to play with. Do a minute-long AMRAP (as many reps as possible), instead of performing 10 reps of squats. "While it might be the same motion, the workout's sensation and feeling will be entirely different," says Schumacher.

4. Your Form Isn't Correct

If you're usually attending exercise classes with an instructor correcting your shape, the transition to exercise alone can be difficult.

Practicing and controlling your own form takes practice, particularly when it's not usually what you do at the gym. But even poor-formed body-weight exercises can lead to excessive joint loading which can lead to joint or muscle pain over time, says Schumacher.

      • Try to perform every exercise in front of a mirror, if you are unsure of your type. It will allow you to pay careful attention to your patterns of movement. Or, think about hiring a Virtual Teacher. A qualified professional will watch you work out and ensure that each workout is performed correctly.

5. You use Homemade Equipment

There are plenty of innovative and healthy ways in your workout for using household items. No barbecue? Heavy artifacts fill a backpack. No dumbbells, right? During a pinch, the soup cans would work.

But you don't want your at-home fitness equipment swaps to get too creative. Sorry, putting the sofa on your leg is definitely not a good idea, given what influencers in social media can do.

"Lifting objects with an unusual shape or different weights can lead to body asymmetries and unusual loading on your joints," says Schumacher.

      • Seek to find similar things in form and weight to use during your workouts. When doing biceps curls with a bottle of water, make sure that every bottle is filled with the same amount of water. Always, make sure the things you are using are secure and do not break when you're using them.
