This might sound obvious, but make sure to warm up and cool down before and after weight training. A good warm up would include walking for 5 to 10 minutes. A good cool down is stretching after weight lifting and continuing to do so for 5 to 10 minutes.
One of the most important thing to remember while weight lifting is that the posture is most important. Many people focus on the weight. If you do not have correct the posture, then it could lead to injuries or slow gains. When starting out, many professionals suggest not to use any weight and just focus on the motion and form.
The right tempo is vital because it will help you to be in control of the motion instead of letting the momentum compromise your strength gains.
Give your muscles a break. When you weight train, tiny tears in your muscle tissue take place. Do not be alarmed, these are not harmful. As the tears knit up, your muscle is growing stronger.
Breathing is just as crucial as having the correct posture. Inhale as you release and exhale when you work against resistance by pulling, pushing, or lifting.
Finding a routine you like and sticking to it is ideal. You should work on all your major muscles two or three times a week.
