Exercise Technique Do’s and Do Not’s #FreeWorkoutFriday

#FreeWorkoutFriday NO. 8

Today I bring you some do’s and do NOT’s of exercise technique.

Proper form is of the upmost importance with any form of movement. Below you will see a video breaking down the proper exercise technique as well as common mistakes made with kettle bell and body weight exercises.

I go through the RDL, single leg RDL, push-ups, planks, presses and more.

The common denominator? Keeping a neutral spine, engaged core and tight lats.

The poor performances of each exercise lack engaged lats, and I sink into lumbar extension (arching in the low back), or lumbar flexion (scaredy cat status). They may all look different, but these are the underlying issues + what is fixed in the “correct” exercise technique.

Take peek at the video and break down my movements.  Maybe watch it a few times, pause it, analyze it. Watching video is a GREAT way to get better at understanding movement + improving your own movement.

Have at it!

Are you familiar with or even guilty of some of these DO NOT’s?  It’s okay, I am not here to judge, I am here to help.

Let me know! I would love to know what resonates with you OR if you have questions.

Leave me a comment below and let’s have a chat.
