As people take on push-up challenges and attempt to follow workout classes from their living rooms, aches and even injuries can arise, whether they are old hands at workouts or new to classes.
 
The pros have advice on how to avoid the pain. Focus on form instead of trying to keep up with your virtual class. If you’ve never tried to do an exercise before, take the time to learn the mechanics before attempting 10 repetitions. Many personal trainers and physical therapists are offering one-on-one sessions virtually.
 
If you have questions about technique and form, invest in a session. Don’t be afraid to modify an exercise, and if you start to feel any pain, stop. Start slow and remember to take rest days.
