To reduce the likelihood of injuries and effectively weight train, the following should be considered.
1. Instead of focusing on the amount of weight, a person should make form a priority. Isolating muscle groups and ensuring smooth and controlled movement with each lift increases gains.
2. To enhance strength, a person should slowly increase resistance or weight. A good rule of thumb is to add just enough, so the final two repetitions are tiresome, but can still be completed with good form.
3. A person can work major muscles two to three times per week. However, planning at least 48 hours of recovery time between each session is vital for allowing the body to repair inevitable tiny tears in muscle tissues.
