Slo-mo is the way to go!!!
The Body Electric mantra has always been "slow and controlled." With my roots in ballet, I instinctively knew that correct form was the basis of all physical disciplines, including exercise. To keep making progress, I always encouraged my viewing audience to use heavier weights only when they could do so without compromising correct form. People who regularly exercise are often fickle, always seeking out the next big trend; health clubs and gyms subscribe to new programs to accommodate their clients. Buyer beware! Health club franchises such as Les Mills Body Pump use variable-weight barbells and feature fast jerky movements...a recipe for injury.
