Why You Should Always Make Exercise Videos of Yourself

May 25, 2023 | Exercises, Tips

Reasons to make a video of yourself:
1. To identify weaknesses and turn them into strengths before they become a painful injury
2. To monitor your progress. You could make a follow-up video later and see the improvements, even if you don’t feel them
3. To create more awareness of your body and start to identify for yourself where your dysfunctions are.

Check out my instagram video below. I’m swinging a 28kg kettlebell, a pretty challenging weight for me. 🏋🏻‍♀️

This video was intended for injury prevention and after watching it, I can see that my neck tends to lean a bit left. Based on this, I know that I need to strengthen the right side of my neck more. I was happy to see that my posture is symmetric and I’m not leaning more to one side or the other, which is something I’ve been working on. My left knee usually likes to lean in.

I challenge you to make your own video of a movement you want to improve on OR one that is already painful. Some examples are:
🔹getting out of a chair
🔹pull-up
🔹tennis serve
🔹yoga, pilates, or barre poses
🔹lifting your baby from the floor
🔹babywearing
🔹cleaning your floors
