Move Like An Athlete
Technique, technique, technique! Proper exercise technique is vital for health and performance, yet the majority of people in the gym use less-than-desirable technique. But, how do you know if you are performing an exercise correctly, especially a complex, multi-joint exercise like a lunge? One easy guideline is to ask "do I look athletic while performing this exercise?" Most of the time, the answer is no. That means you need to regress the exercise, modify the exercise, decrease the loading, or work on mobility and basic movement patterns.
