3 Everyday Items That Improve Your Workout

3 Everyday Items That Improve Lifting Form

Do you want to improve your workout and lifting form? Use these 3 everyday items.

  1. Fix kettlebell swings with a box: Technically, the kettlebell swing is a hip hinge, not a squat. If you’re bending your knees too much, you’re doing it wrong. Put a cardboard box at about shin height. If you hit it, you’re squatting too much.
  2. Fix squats with tape: When you squat heavy, your pelvis may tuck under – this is also called a “butt-wink” – which can harm your spine. To fix it, place a piece of tape on the intersection of your back and shorts. If it’s pulled off as you descend, you have to keep your lower back flatter.
  3. Fix crawl with a ball: Crawls – Spider-Man, bear or other – are a fine conditioning tool, but often misused. Put a small ball – not a full-size football – try a size 3, on your lower back while you do them. This will make sure you keep your back flat, engaging your core and safeguarding your spine.
