The Importance of Proper Form
For the readers who have their eyes and ears open for the truth, here are some recommendations regarding exercise performance.
People with low self-esteem refuse to live consciously.
Trainees who use proper form usually have high levels of self-esteem.
They show it by:
- Being interested in progression, not in theatrics.
- Lifting for themselves, not for others. They are not concerned about what the other guy thinks of him lifting somewhat lighter loads. Remember: it is not where you start that matters, is where you end that does.
- Knowing that lifting big loads with improper form will not get you to lift big loads with proper form as quickly as lifting in proper form at all times.
Here are three principles I use to help build character while achieving proper form on exercises.
By applying these three principles to your exercise form, you are on your way to faster and greater results.
