Knowing what to include in your leg day workout is important. But it’s equally important to be aware of what can hurt your feet. Here are five habits you should quit.
overtraining. It is important not to overdo it while exercising. Everything can be achieved with consistency and patience. Overtraining can cause your muscles to ache, weaken and eventually take a break to recover.
insufficient time for rest. It’s important to give your body enough time to rest, both between workouts and sets and between training days.
bad posture. You need to monitor your posture while performing each exercise. Check the position of your feet, ankles, knees, hips, pelvis, shoulders and head. Among the common mistakes Dr. Mike Bol lists turning the toes in or out, bending the knees or bending them outward.
Lack of suitable equipment. You may experience a split shin or plantar fasciitis due to improper shoes. And any of these issues will require additional recovery time.
Eating the wrong foods. Check if your diet is rich in protein (especially lean – fish, chicken and vegetable protein). Only in this case will the muscles be strengthened.
