    Quality Over Quantity: Why You Need to Perfect Your Exercise Technique

    When it comes to health and fitness, a lot of people focus on doing longer workouts and more reps. However, you also need to get your technique right if you really want to see results. At Kaya, we offer a range of fitness courses in Melbourne & Prahran locations and are passionate about educating our members. Let’s take a look at why it’s so important that you get your technique right when heading off to your next exercise class.

    Quality Over Quantity: Why You Need to Perfect Your Exercise Technique

    Avoid injury with the correct form:

    One of the main reasons why it’s so essential that you get your technique right when you exercise is that it helps to avoid injury. Carrying out an exercise incorrectly can lead to issues such as overextension, which can lead to strain and injury. Remember to get your technique right initially rather than push yourself to the next level and risk doing damage. Don’t start loading up your weights or trying to add in extra reps before you’re ready – even if you don’t feel it at the time, it could put unnecessary strain on the body.

    Get maximum results with the right technique:

    It’s not only injury that makes learning the right technique so important – you also want to carry out the exercises correctly so you get the best results possible. Results don’t just come from upping your intensity. Fewer reps but with perfect technique will tend to deliver better results than a high number of reps with poor form. Even small changes to exercises can make a big difference with the results you see. With high quality form, you’ll often also feel the difference the next day!

    How to get the right technique:

    One of the best ways to get your technique right is to join up to a fitness class where your instructor can show you the correct form and guide you through the various exercises. They can also help you make small adjustments which can make a big difference. Better still, sign up to a fitness courses which takes you through technique so you feel confident doing it on your own.
