Gym Dos and Dont's

By Life Style Sports

Follow these 12 commandments and you'll be winning Mr. or Ms. Gym in no time.

  • DO

    Use the mirror to check you're exercising correctly.
  • DON'T

    Use it to pose or eye up the hottie next to you. Either way it's creepy.
  • DO

    Put weights back where you found them.
  • DON'T

    Hog weights and machines like a spoilt, albeit muscly, kid.
  • DO

    Wipe down machines with a towel after you use them.
  • DON'T

    Just think someone else will. Your mum doesn't go there.
  • DO

    Work out your entire body ask the gym coach for advice if you need it.
  • DON'T

    Skip leg day unless you're going the half Hercules, half Peewee Herman look.
  • DO

    Shower and wash your gym clothes as soon as possible after working out.
  • DON'T

    Needlessly strut naked round the locker-room or use a facecloth as a bath towel.
  • DO

    Switch off your mobile. Your chatter could be distracting someone much bigger than you.
  • DON'T

    Sing along to the music. You're not Celine Dion. Actually, especially if you are Celine Dion.
