How Strict Should Your Exercise Form Be?

When it comes to weight training there are generally 2 schools of thought when it comes to exercise form.

First you have the typical personal trainer "fitness experts" who say you should perform all lifts with light to moderate weights and use very slow and controlled movements.

Then you have the power and strength athletes who like to use more explosive movements, looser training form, and lift heavier weights.

Which one is right and which one should you use in your training?

  1. Exactly. I'm a big proponent of "middle of the road" form. You've got
    the guys who think you got to curl
    the pink 3lb dbs while their elbows are glued to the wall, and then you've got the guys who think a reverse-grip power-clean/squat-combo constitutes a curl. There IS a balance.
