It’s difficult to correct your form when you’re working out on your own, with no trainer or friend by your side to point out your mistakes. Incorrect posture can be a huge problem and lead to pain and injury, but there are ways to fix it even if you’re working out at home.

Short-Term Trainer

If you can’t afford a trainer long-term, you should at least consider doing a class or two and use them to correct your form. If you don’t want to do it in person due to safety concerns, individual virtual classes are also an option since many trainers offer them these days.

Baby Steps

You shouldn’t rush your home workout routine. It requires a lot of effort and patience and kicking things off with basic moves is your best bet. Only after mastering the basics, you should consider adding modifications to the moves you’re doing, but there’s no need to rush anything.

Mirror or Video

It’s impossible to check if you’re making mistakes if you can’t watch yourself while doing the exercises. Standing in front of a mirror is the best possible solution, but you can also film yourself and go over the footage to check what you’ve been doing wrong.
