In my 20 plus years of weight training I’ve never been injured. I credit staying injury free to always emphasizing safety in my workouts. Ego lifting, a type of lifting we see on a constant basis in gyms worldwide, will eventually lead to injury.
Weight management and living a healthy lifestyle are very popular topics. In my 20+ years of training experience I’ve seen many people join gyms and one of the first things they do is weigh themselves.
A few weeks later there are sighs of disappointment as more pounds have been gained instead of lost. Focusing on one’s health, and not the scale, is the ideal way to prioritize when exercising and living a healthy lifestyle.
