Fabulously Fit

Form and Breath Go Hand in Hand

Good form is important to remember when working out. When performing any exercise, you want to make sure that your form is correct and your movements are controlled. Learning how to properly hold yourself helps to make your workouts more effective, and maybe more importantly for others, it helps to keep you from being all willy-nilly looking while exercising.

Proper form is maintained by doing this: slightly contract your shoulder blades together while making sure your shoulders aren't hanging out by your ears. (In personal trainer speak, your shoulders are retracted and depressed.) Loosen the muscles in your neck and make sure you're not straining your shoulders forward, thus caving in on your chest. This helps to tighten your upper body so when you perform an exercise, you will be able to maintain balance and control, thus preventing a possible injury or fall.
