Why Good Form is Important

Good form is always very important when working out! There are several reasons why it is so important. Firstly, Good form is important for safety. For example if a man was squatting a large amount of weight and using bad form he could possibly be putting too much strain on the wrong part of his back which would lead to back problems. Also, Good form is important for building muscle because with good form you can properly isolate the muscle you want to workout and make sure it gets maximum stimulation. So next time you go to the gym, make sure to watch your form in the mirror to really get the maximum benefit from your effort and to stay healthy and not injure yourself from bad form!
