Recording your lifts is a vital component of your progression in your lifts, knowledge and reducing injury!
From assessing technical breakdowns, testing out a new theory, to see progression and for those posts lol. There are many reasons to record.
Often when you perform your lift, you only realize big mistakes/technical flaws but what about the small issues? Your lift may have felt good, but could it feel better? This is where the videos come into play.
For instance, in the deadlift video above (left was real speed and right is slowed down), it felt great to me initially. Moved fast and positioning felt good. When I looked back at the video over and over and played it in slow motion, I found an issue. Start of my positioning was good but when I initiated the pull, my legs and hips exploded up and my upper back laid over (lack of upper back tension). May not seem like much but this was with light weight, to me (315lbs). The heavier the weights get, the magnitude of this breakdown would exponentially get worse.
Short story, record your lifts and watch them back over multiple times. Never assume your lift was perfect or your form is perfect. Strive to perfect your lifts and not only will it help your overall progression but it will help reduce your injury risk.
