Good form..

Hey guys, I’m not sure about you but I've noticed there have been some people getting injured recently. Speaking from experience(JW: Ben partially tore one of his shoulder ligaments about 4 months ago), injury is not something an athlete would want during the course of his or her training. This post is to remind athletes including myself, that form is absolutely critical.

My point is to emphasize that form is of utmost importance when it comes to workouts. Technique is important, not only a good time. The time component can make workouts competitive, but in my honest opinion, it acts as a guide to track one’s performance throughout the course of their training. I would advice one not to take a weight or do a movement that one cannot really handle. It makes more sense to take a lighter weight and do it with good form, than to take a heavy weight and perform the movement with crappy form.

Please listen to your body. Avoid overtraining as rest and recovery are essential for improving an athlete’s performance. Lastly, please work on getting the right technique and consistency on movements before engaging in your workout to avoid getting hurt. Keep in mind, bad form does not deliver results, only injuries.
