2. Stretch after your workout.
Make sure to set aside 10 minutes at the end of your session to cool down and stretch your body. Even adding a couple of yoga sessions to your weekly routine is very beneficial to help with mobility and flexibility.
3. Have rest days.
It’s a good idea to make sure your body has time to recover between sessions, so don’t overdo it.
