A key component of strength training is the technique/form. You can lift more weight, gain muscle more quickly, and lower your risk of injury by using proper technique. Good technique guarantees that you target the correct muscles and that your motions are effective.
For example, when practicing a Squat, you should maintain a straight back and an uplifted chest while pushing your hips back and lowering your body. Instead of placing enormous pressure on your lower back, this will help you train your glutes and quads.
The range of motion (ROM) is another essential element of the technique. It is the distance between the starting position and the ending point of an exercise. To get the most out of each exercise, ensure you use the entire range of motion. For example, when doing Curls for your Biceps, move your arm from a fully stretched position to a position where your biceps is maximally contracted.
Strength training is the best way to increase your fitness level and gain muscle. But it's essential to remember that strength training involves more than just lifting heavy objects. The weight you are lifting and also your technique is crucial.
You can maximize the benefits of your strength training and make faster progress toward your goals by paying close attention to form (including ROM) and other essential aspects of a good technique.
