The Surgeon General has determined that improper form
may cause conditions that hurt like a mutha' and could screw you up for
a long time!
You MUST use proper form in order to get the full benefits of a weight training program
Here you will find weight
training exercises that are categorized by body part. Remember that it
is very important to exercise your entire body uniformly. Do not
concentrate on what you view as areas that need work while ignoring
others. Your body functions as a unit and as such should be treated as
a unit. Create an anabolic environment for you entire body and you will
see much better results.
The proper execution of
your workout is of utmost importance. Improperly performing a movement
is counterproductive at best, and can be downright dangerous at worst.
Never sacrifice good form for the sake of moving more weight. You will
be much better served, and you will see much better results, by using
weight that you are able to handle properly. Don't let that be an
excuse to slack off on your effort though, you still need to strive to
increase your resistance poundage, just do it in a steady methodical
As a rule, movements should
be at a steady controlled pace. Don't try to rush through your
repetitions. Don't swing, jerk or bounce or bounce the weight, (or
yourself in the case of bodyweight exercises).
