Weight Lifting & Proper Form

Weight Lifting & Proper Form
Mar 03, 2017

When you are weight training, the objective should always be to work a specific muscle group in the most effective way possible. Proper form and technique are integral to effectively targeting the intended muscle group you are working. Proper form during exercise is a means to avoid injury, but you must also maintain proper form in order to keep continuous tension on the targeted muscle for optimal results.

Each and every exercise is different from one another and thus proper form for each exercise will vary to some degree. However, there are some universal rules that apply to all exercises that ensure safety and efficiency. First off, avoid using momentum as part of the movement you are intending to perform. Keep your body as still as you can, focusing on using the intended muscle to perform the motion and not the rest of your body. Keep in mind using momentum is a form of cheating and when you use momentum to help you lift you cheat yourself.

Second, complete a full range of motion through each exercise to get the most muscle contraction and expansion possible. The more muscle contraction and expansion you can get the more effective the workout. The two main benefits of using proper form when weight lifting are more blood being pumped into the muscles you are working and a safer workout. Proper form ensures that you are not putting your body in harms way.

If you are having a hard time maintaining proper from when weight lifting there is a good chance you are attempting to lift too much weight. Remember lifting a little bit of weight with great from trumps lifting a lot of weight with poor form.
