One of the most common mistakes that people make when they work out that I see every single day is they try to do too much all in one shot. You have to take your time, you cannot try to do everything in one day and get confused and then hurt yourself. If you know you cannot lift a 100 pounds, don't try to lift 100 pounds, take your time and go down to 20 pounds, and then work your way up, that way you'd not have to worry about hurting your back, hurting your shoulders, hurting your neck, hurting your knees, or any other parts of your body.

Take it easy, take your time, take it slow. Another mistake that I see people doing all the time is trying to do what their friends are doing. If your friend is a marathon runner, and they run 10K and you're not a marathon runner, don't try to run a 10K with them, go your own pace, do not mimic or imitate a person for what they know how to do, do what you know how to do and what you can perfect in the long run.
