Here is a tip that I have learned over the years with my exercise programs and it really works to keep you trim:

To get the most out of your exercise program, work on your technique!

So true! When I started to get some strength then I started to be able to do the exercises correctly, then I started to really shape up. ;)

Thanks for the tip, Sharla!

Definitely, I guess that's why it's hard to do exercises at first. Once you get the hang of it, you can see the results. I know that Jillian makes the comment in Shred it with weights, "practice with lighter weights first, then increase when you feel you got it." This is a paraphrase of course. So form is very important. It can also prevent injury.

Thanks for the reminder.

One thing that has really helped is to have someone video me while I am exercising. Sometimes I have seen that I am not doing an exercise right when watching myself on a video. Sometimes it is even funny!

I wonder if I should video myself too? If I do I am sure not posting it on the blog, that is for sure. Just kidding!

I agree. I have just started a new exercise DVD (T-tapp) and I can really tell that once I learn the moves well enough to be able to have the right technique, I will get even more out of it. We'll see how it goes! It is hard, though, when you can't really see yourself doing the moves. Tami has a great idea to have someone video you! Having a mirror near you helps, but still can't always see all the different positions, especially if your head is supposed to be down!
