It might seem obvious, but it’s surprising how little people pay attention to the ‘how’ of performing an exercise. The body has to learn the pattern of the movement, and because everything is connected, you get the best results from using muscles in the right order. Go for form before quantity to get better results. If you aren’t sure, ask for help from someone qualified to make adjustments to your technique. This has the added benefit of protecting yourself from unnecessary injuries.
“Sometimes technique makes all the difference – a client who was very strong had weak mobility and couldn’t perform a squat or lunge properly. Weeks of resistance training and mobility work made an incredible difference to her performance. Many people believe they should be able to do it themselves, without help. But even a small amount of expert guidance can give huge improvements – for example, just a body composition consult and a general meal plan given to a client allowed her put the focus and effort in the right place to lose two dress sizes. The right help can make it easier to reach your goals.”
