To get the most out of our training we need to develop movement awareness. To improve this we should focus on what’s happening while running, biking, lifting weights, etc. Concentrating on technique will improve exercise effectiveness and promote progress.
Think about when you first learned an exercise – you had to slow things down and really think about what you were doing. This concept should continue well after the initial learning process – there are always ways to refine and improve technique.
Going through the motions mindlessly can lead to sloppy form and potential injury. We want to own our movement, be in control and move with a purpose.
