    Default Proper Technique

    The purpose of the thread is to sort of act as a reference for proper technique for various basic exercises common to any routine. It’ll have video and picture aids to better describe how to perform these exercises correctly. There are threads posted daily asking for how to perform a certain exercise, and I feel that having a thread like this to reference back to will make answering such questions easier.

    Again, these are general guidelines explaining the movements, keys to moving the weight effectively and safely, and things to avoid doing in order to stay safe and to get the most out of a movement. It’s not really a place to “argue” about how to do dips in order to target the pecs better, although if you have a video on that you can feel free to add to this “database.”

    "We do it for the feeling that you can only get when you have a mind-numbingly heavy weight in your hands, straining for all that you're worth, while your training partners are screaming in your ear, Slayer is blasting on the radio, and you’re slowly grinding toward that goal you've been chasing. That is why we do what we do."

    performing the proper technique is essential, there is not point in going too heavy and doing things wrong as this can lead to injury. By doing things correctly it will help you in your gains and then you can move up the weights again using good form.nice post

    Maintaining proper form is the most crucial and deciding factor in how much you gain in a given time span. If you shell out a large number of lateral presses with a high amount of weight, then only secluded parts of our muscles would work out and the other would atrophy with time. This, in the long run would give rise to gross muscle structures and abnormal hardening. I have seen various results of this in the Gym. Working with lower weights and maintaining proper form will give you more strength and help in breaking plateaus.

    wow thanks for those videos! It seems that I was squatting and doing pull ups all wrong. I will use these videos to better my form and to prevent injuries.

    I don't like the one sized fits all approach to form because everyone has different biomechanics. Correct form for person A will not necessarily be correct form for person B. Also, the form advice from experts varies, there are different schools of thought on form. For example, some claim you should keep your head forward and slightly up in the deadlift and others say it should be slightly down.

    Great information here. I know that the proper technique can save you quite a bit of pain and headache later on. Without this, you can have trouble in getting the lifting done that you need to get done.
