Proper form especially when doing exercise is really important for 2 reasons.
- It really does lower your risk of injury and pain
- 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?
