Always Use Proper Form on EVERY rep of EVERY exercise

How much is your health worth?
 

Do you skip routine maintenance for your car?
Your body also requires routine maintenance. You can buy a new car, but you only get one body.  So how much is your health worth? 30 minutes a day 3 times a week?
 
Disclaimer: YOU should always consult a physician before beginning any exercise or diet program.  If you haven't trained for a while, start out slow with LIGHT weights.  Use a weight or resistance that allows you to do 15-20 reps.  Do this for at least two months to give your muscles, joints, and ligaments time to prepare for the real work.  Besides, for the first 6-8 weeks you're just preparing your body for the real workout.  You'll get about the same results during this time no matter what you do (within reason), so don't risk getting hurt.  Always follow proper form for any exercise. Don't sling the weights.  Often you'll see people in the gym using body English to sling the weights instead of muscle.  Besides the fact that this does little to work the desired muscles and thus will not give you good results, it greatly increases your risk of injury.  And workout with a partner.  It's safer and you're more likely to stick with it.
