You don’t need to have perfect movement or “perfect form” to be injury and pain-free.
We’re not saying do stupid shit, we’re saying don’t let something minor hold you back from lifting heavy shit.
Yes, movement and form matter. Yes, there’s always optimal. And yes, we should always strive for optimal. Always work on being better! However, our bodies are way more resilient than you may realize.
Don’t believe us?
Just head to your local gym and look at all of the terrible forms people are using with 100s of pounds of weight in complex lifts. And they probably don’t even have any pain or joint issues (yet). Our bodies are badass!
The question is: How long can our bodies tolerate these terrible forms and loaded movements?
