To use the academy to the open air should take into account some factors, such as:
- Perform stretching the muscle before you start the devices;
- Perform the movements slowly and progressive;
- Perform 3 sets of 15 reps on each device or follow the directions printed on each of them;
- Maintain good posture in all exercises;
- Use proper clothing and tennis shoes;
- Do not use all of the appliances on the same day, by dividing them on different days depending on the availability of the academy;
- Do not perform exercises if you feel any pain, dizziness, a fever, or if you feel unwell;
- Perform the exercises in the morning or late afternoon to avoid strong sun.
The presence of the teacher is important at least in the early days that he may give the necessary instructions on how to use the appliances and how many repetitions should be performed during each exercise. Choose to perform the exercises without the proper follow-up can lead to the development of orthopedic injuries, such as rupture of ligaments, stretches and tendonitis that can be avoided through the proper use of the equipment.
