Technique Is Everything

Proper form especially when doing exercise is really important for 2 reasons.

  1. It really does lower your risk of injury and pain
  2. It raises your performance level

Without proper technique, your results won’t be as good as they could be.  Having improper form can have a negative effect on your body and leave you further away from your goals resulting in you questioning is this worth it!

Yes it is worth it!!

You’re never too old to start exercising, walking, jogging, swimming …….. there is something out there for everybody.

If you have been out of the gym for a while it may be worth checking in with a personal trainer to help with your form,. Sometimes it is the simplest of exercises that need a little tweaking!

A typical exercise I often see not executed well are push-ups. If you’re going to all that effort you really want to see results. If you cannot do full press-ups start on your knees, you will be surprised how quickly you will go from knees to full press-ups. It’s worth doing 4 good press-ups than pumping out 20 bad ones!!

There was a time I couldn’t even do one properly executed push-up.

Do you have an exercise success story?

Would love to hear, please leave your comments below.

  1. Hi! I don’t have an exercise success story, per se, but I just wanted to comment that this resonated with me on a professional level. Lots of people focus on salary or accolades. But in my work, both as a clinical psychologist and a supervisor/career coach I get that and more- a sense of purpose. Like you describe with each rep, I nurture each interaction carefully and mindfully. Its those single, meaningful interactions, one after the other, that almost guarantees positive results… eventually.

    1. Hi, thank you for your comments and I couldn’t agree with you more. With Consistency and patience you will definitely see results. Making changes can be frustrating but in time this will pay off and you will start to see the positive results. I always say to people “Don’t expect to look like someone’s chapter 10 when you’ve only just opened the book”. Take Care Jx
