Exercises you Butcher Part 2

Hey guys –

I make no apologies about being obsessed with perfect technique with all my clients and athletes. Here is some more exercises people tend to do in the gym with poor form – clean your technique up in these and your body will thank you.

4. Chin Up

The chin up is my favourite pull exercise but it’s extremely tough for most people to do. However, if you attempt them I recommend you do them perfectly and avoid any neck or shoulder issues that may arise from poor form. Check out this vid to clear up your technique..

5. Plank Drill

The common plank is one of the most common exercises you will see in gyms nowadays, alas perfect technique is less common. We hate holding the plank drill for minutes or any silly thing like that, we like small perfect bursts of say 10 seconds. The phrase here to remember is “tuck your tail under” – this will stop you feeling it in your lower back.

6. Push Ups

The simple push up, so simple, so effective and so rare you see proper technique. The thing to remember with push ups is to do less and to do them better. Don’t be afraid to do push ups on a raised surface either as they will improve your technique no end.
