 Workout Saftey

All exercises should be completed with proper technique maintaining good posture throughout. Use technique and posture failure as an indicator as to how challenging you find the resistance or exercise position. Optimize the resistance and exercise type according to your own ability.

It is important to incorporate exercises that cover all major muscle groups into your main workout to ensure a balanced program. Focusing too much on one muscle group can cause muscular imbalances.

Taking these guidelines into consideration means that you will get far more from your workouts, advance quicker and help reduce the risk of exercise related injury.

Always seek professional advice from a qualified fitness instructor before attempting any exercise or workout.
