Correct your form
This is one of the most important tips for your physical health. Doing exercises incorrectly can lead to activating the incorrect muscle groups or even worse, injury. Our recommendation is setting a mirror up so you can inspect your form while completing your workout. Alternatively, you can set up a camera to record your form, this allows you to review the footage and see where exactly what you’re doing right and wrong.
One benefit of the increase in fitness content is the wide variety of genuinely reputable information and trainers you can now access online to cross check any advice you receive. Check out this blog post or our Instagram for instructions directly from Luke.
