Workout Tip: Focus on Form
Whether you're new to working out and the gym, or a seasoned gym rat, ensuring your form is correct while executing an exercise is something that should be a priority at every single workout session.
It's pretty silly to go to gym and give your workout 100%, only to put a damper on your results because of incorrect form. Incorrect technique or an unstable posture not only makes you look like the gym clown, but on a more serious note, incorrect form and technique can also lead to injuries and limit your muscles' capabilities.
Form is usually compromised during weight training sessions, especially when you're new to them. This is also where the most common injuries occur as well. When you start working out with weights, before you do anything make sure you are doing the exercise correctly.
Thankfully there are many websites available that show you exactly how to execute each exercise, but if you're still unsure of your form with any exercise, ask a gym consultant or personal trainer. After all, that's what they are there for — to help you learn to love exercise and reap the rewards it offers.
Incorrect form can also come into play when you bite off more than you
can chew. If you are unable to perform the full range of motion on a specific
exercise, chances are your body is not strong enough to take on the next
weight load. Go slow, ease into it and remember the golden rule of weight
training is to focus on progress not perfection.
