Whether you are new to working out or have some experience, you need to know that posture and form are so important when doing any type of exercise. This applies to exercise equipment and bodyweight training too.
The complex system of muscles in the body can become strained and cause problems when you don’t know what you are doing. This is often why people injure themselves which can put them off exercising and enjoying the benefits of healthy living.
If you want to get great results and reduce your risk of injury a personal trainer in your local area of Dubai can make sure your technique and process is correct.
Exercise helps people lose weight and lower the risk of some diseases.
Exercising regularly lowers a person’s risk of developing some diseases, including obesity, type 2 diabetes, and high blood pressure. Exercise also can help keep your body at a healthy weight and condition.
Proper form helps you work out more efficiently so you can use your energy for the extra push rather than wasted movements. Improper form may mean you are targeting unintended muscles or muscle groups.
The better your form the better your results – run faster, lift more and jump higher when you do it right and Using good technique in sport is beneficial because it promotes high performance and reduces the risk of injury.
In this way the players benefit from the use of correct technique, which will optimise performance and minimise the risk of injury. All sports contain activities that have an element of injury risk.
Technique and form are two totally different things.
Technique is the way you perform an exercise in order to target specific muscle groups.
For example, bench pressing with a close grip or wide grip are types of techniques used to target different muscles in your chest.
Form is all about injury prevention. Proper form helps you work out more efficiently so you can use your energy for the extra push rather than wasted movements.
‘Improper form’ may mean you are targeting unintended muscles or muscle groups. The better your form the better your results – run faster, lift more and jump higher when you do it right.

The only way to try and void such injuries is to make sure you exercise and train correctly. Correctly means using proper technique and form. This is especially true when it comes to lifting weights in Dubai. Not only is going in full throttle dangerous is can also cause injuries that can last for weeks.
You wouldn’t get in a car and be expected to know how to drive it properly without some form of teaching and training. The same applies to physical fitness.
The internet is full of training videos, blog posts and more but what many of these fail to do is inform you of the risks associated with not using correct technique and form.
Being educated while exercising is essential in maximizing effectiveness and reducing risk of injury.
A personal trainer in Dubai, Abu Dhabi or Sharjah will teach you everything you need to know about exercising. They will put together the perfect routine to help you achieve your goals, demonstrate the correct posture for each exercise.
