When it comes to the gym, your brain is the first muscle you should exercise. Make sure you consult a doctor and a physical trainer before beginning strength training. The more you know about strength training, the less prone you are to injury.
Kick Back
If you experience pain while strength training, it's best to stop. Any further wear and tear on your muscles may cause more serious injuries. Sit on a nearby bench and relax your muscles as best as you can. Then hit the showers. If the pain doesn't go away or seems to get worse, consult your doctor.
The Form Factor
There's no proof that wearing a weight belt while lifting gives your back additional support. So don't think that because you're wearing one you're made of steel. Instead, stick to your usual weight routine and focus on keeping proper lifting form.
