Form Matters

The difference between a successful person and others is not a lack of strength, not a lack of knowledge, but rather a lack of will. --Vince Lombardi

When you are doing your workouts, are you paying attention to your form? One of the hardest parts about leading group fitness classes is that I can't be everywhere at once...I try so hard to keep you in line, keep your knees back, keep your back straight, keep full range of motion.  BUT, ultimately, its up to you to be more aware of what you are doing during during your workouts. Pay close attention to the descriptions of the exercises. It's okay to perform the movements slowly if you need to in order to get them right — it's better than doing them inaccurately. Try not to use momentum or leverage to complete the moves — you'll only be cheating yourself. It is also better to use lighter weight and do the move right than to load up your bar and do it wrong.  Poor form can significantly hamper the results that you obtain from your weight workout, and it can also increase your chances of injury.  STAY INJURY FREE! If you want results, follow the rules and one of those rules is to use proper form!
Play Hard and stay smart with your workouts...

Unless someone like you cares a whole awful lot, nothing is going to get better. It’s not. Dr. Seuss
