Weight loss: Why it is important to exercise with the right technique
Learning the correct technique of exercise is essential to achieve goals like weight loss, muscle build-up and getting toned and fit body. Not only can it help you achieve your goals on time, it can also help you be independent in exercising (without a trainer).
"When learning any exercise it's so important that you learn the basics. Believe me ladies, it's better to take your time to learn how to do an exercise properly rather than rushing into it and doing it incorrectly," writes Itsines in the caption of her post.
She goes on to add that doing the exercise with the correct form can help in engaging the right muscles, which in turn helps you make progress quickly and also reduces the risk of injury.
In the video, she explains the form of the below three exercises:
- Jump squat
- Beng-leg jackknife
These are some of the most common exercises in her BBG programs, says Itsines. Watch the video below to see how each exercise is done and make sure you get the form right. Perform the exercises in front of the mirror, to get better results.
