For me its been: -

Rushing through warmups (hurt myself on a warmup)

Ego, tried to deadlift too much with terrible form when I was younger

Ignoring little injuries/pains and they eventually turn into large problems.

Im there

My injuries used to come from trying to go too heavy too soon, but more recently going too heavy too often.

My knees seem to be OK unless I go heavy 3 times per week so I have to work around that and wrists/shoulder seem to play up from over use.

I have definitely found 3 days per week better than 4 or 5 days for helping the shoulders and wrists and squatting heavy 3 times per week seem to be a no-no, so ill do 2 heavy and 1 light and see how i go.

I think a lot of injuries can happen from not understanding form.

Take a simple barbell curl.

Sure, exercise videos can and do describe how your arms should move but what about:

1. You core--should it be tight?

2. Is it the same for your glutes?

3. Should your back be arched? How much, if at all?

4. What should your shoulders and lats be doing? How should they feel?

5. How far should apart should your feet be?

Not understanding overall body positioning can lead to bad habits, which, over time and as you lift heavy, can lead to injuries.
