    Why is it important to maintain movement/technique over maxing out in weight? & why is it essential to ensure your body has access before building strength?

    Maintaining proper movement and technique is essential for a number of reasons:

    1. Injury prevention: When you use poor form or overexert yourself, you’ll likely experience muscle strain or other injuries. Focusing on proper technique and movement can reduce your risk of injury and allow your body to adapt gradually to the demands of your training.
    2. Improved performance: Proper movement and technique can help you get the most out of your workouts and improve your overall performance. For example, suppose you’re performing a strength-training exercise with poor form. In that case, you may not be activating the muscles you’re trying to target, which can reduce the effectiveness of the training.
    3. Long-term progress: Focusing on proper movement and technique can help you progress in the long term. If you’re constantly pushing yourself to the point of injury or overexertion, you may not be able to sustain your training over time. Building strength gradually and maintaining proper technique can set you up for long-term progress, success, and fewer setbacks.

    It’s essential to ensure your body has mobility and flexibility before building strength, as this can help prevent injury and ensure that you can perform exercises correctly. For example, suppose you’re trying to squat but don’t have the necessary mobility in your ankles and hips. In that case, you may struggle to maintain proper form and potentially experience muscle strain or other injuries. By working on movement, mobility, and flexibility, you can improve your range of motion, increase your security grade, and prepare your body for the demands of strength training.
