Form is a specific way of performing a movement, often a strength training exercise, to avoid injury, prevent “cheating” and increase strength. It doesn’t matter how many pushups or any other exercise you can do in a minute if you’re not doing a single one correctly, with correct form. A useful way to approach exercise is in terms of progression: Perfect your technique, then later add weight and/or speed. This is especially important if your workout calls for performing “as many reps as possible” during a set amount of time. Choose quality over quantity, and you can stay injury-free. During personal training sessions, correct form is taught, providing education on exercise technique.
