In brief: See below
Warm up, warm up, warm up, stretch out, stretch out, stretch out and don't overextend your capabilities.
Too many people, especially adults don't warm up and stretch out long enough and thoroughly so to loosen up the muscles, tendons, ligaments so to reduce the risk of injury - this is the "so called weekend warrior." so, prepare yourself.
