Health Tip: Use Your Home Gym Safely

Health Tip: Use Your Home Gym Safely


(HealthDay News) -- A home gym is a convenient way to get in your daily workout, but you still have to take precautions to stay safe.

The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons mentions these safety guidelines:

  • Start out slowly, gradually increasing the duration and intensity of your workouts.
  • Pay attention to your form and technique, making sure you're using the machines correctly.
  • Always warm up and cool down.
  • If you have pain, adjust the equipment to make your workout less strenuous. Also, take a day off and rest.
