One of the most common mistakes people make while at the gym is the use of improper form. Not realizing that the use of improper form will hinder your results while putting you at risk for major injury. The most common of which tend to pertain to the back which can become especially troublesome, as they can take months to heal and can become a problem for the entirety of your life if not taken care of properly. Which is why you should always be aware of your form and emphasize practicing good habits, as poor habits are always easy to slip back into. Not only will practicing proper form help you prevent injuries but it will also allow you to ensure that the correct muscle are being targeted and reduces unnecessary stabilizing action which will prevent you from being inefficient with your energy. With all that being said, why would you want to continue on executing the exercises you perform daily improperly?
