Don’t rush growth. Slowly increase the weights you are lifting and number of reps you are completing.
Use a variety of tools. Dumbbells, barbells, kettlebells, and resistance bands offer different ways to challenge your muscles.
Make sure that your movements are controlled. Strength training is not meant to be a rushed activity. Do each rep with correct form and a steady pace.
There is no perfect time of day for strength training. The best time is one that is regularly available to you so that you can find a rhythm to your workout pattern.
Make sure that stretches are part of your warm-up and cool-down when completing your strength training regimen.
