What NOT to do during exercise
Exercising on an empty stomach
Many people believe that exercising without having eaten before is an effective technique to lose weight quickly. But not so: as the body did not receive the “fuel” needed, directly burn calories in muscle, not body fat. The recommendation is to eat something before exercising (not overeating just before) to have more energy during exercise and strengthen metabolism, which also means that our body will get used to burn more calories throughout the day.
Drinking big gulps of water
Drink water before, during and after exercise is essential to keep the body hydrated. You should drink between 29 and 177 cubic centimeters of water every 15-20 minutes, not all at once. Drink plenty of water drinks at one time can cause stomach pains, not forgetting to drink more water than usual can reach intoxicate, excessive moisture leads to low levels of sodium in the body, which can have dizziness, cramps and slurred speech.
Distribute your water bottle to drink so little, but less often each drink rather than several cubic centimeters at a time while exercising.
Always repeat the same exercise

Meet the same set of exercises every day bored quickly and therefore lost the enthusiasm to practice physical activity consistently. Furthermore, there comes a time when your body adjusts and reaches a plateau, so you do not see more results. What’s more, to always do the same exercises you can injure yourself by repetitive strain.
In conclusion, be sure to combine a healthy dose of strength training with cardiovascular exercises varied to do a job well distributed throughout the body and thus able to notice a changing both your physical condition and the quality of your training … Plus it’s much more fun!

Feel some small pain or discomfort during exercise is common. However, when pain becomes constant or different than usual is a sign that we should stop. You need to take a break and lower the intensity of exercise at least a couple of minutes to see if calm. If you continue, then take the days you think necessary to return to practice physical activity.
