Make your workout count

Be consistent with your training regime and don't make excuses, it's a slippery slope once you start doing this. The routine has to be a priority.

Warm up before training. Injuries equal setbacks.

Try to enjoy your workout -- it's much more beneficial if you do.

Don't use heavy weights.

Stay away from sugar.

Stay away from high-protein liquid diets.
