Updated DO’s and DON’Ts video! While there are always different ways to perform different exercises, I am going to go over common, easily fixed mistakes to reduce injury and better engage your muscles! Share with a friend to help! 💥Lat pull down-
I see this exercise performed incorrectly a lot! With doing it my “wrong” way, you aren’t engaging your lats like you should. First, don’t use a lot of momentum or body movement! This just takes away from engaging your lats, and you may be using too much weight. Having your elbows pointed back, and going way below your chest will cause shoulder pain, and not even engage your lats. GOOD- lower bar at your chin or just below. Grip shouldn’t be too wide, and elbows straight down, and make sure you are having a mind to muscle connection! 💥Romanian Deadlift- This is a Romain deadlift I am performing. NOT a stiff leg deadlift which can be confused sometimes! There is way more hip extension in Romanian, more knee bend, and you don’t go as low! A huge DON’T is not having a neutral spine. Keeping your head up will put a lot of stress on your neck and spine. Make sure there is no curve in your back, and hinge at the hips. 💥Overhead Triceps
This one may seem like a simple exercise, but by doing a common mistake you are not getting as much out of it as you should! Common mistake for this workout is having your elbows way too far apart. This won’t engage your triceps like they should. Keep those elbows super close and tight into your face! Try this and it will feel so much better!
