The importance of good form can never be overly emphasized. Proper form makes sure you target the correct muscles, it decreases unnecessary stress on joints, and substantially reduces your chance of injury.

Avoid large amounts of dressings, spreads and extra cheese. Request oil & vinegar, French, or Italian dressings in small amounts or ask for them “on the side.”

This means you can use subtle movements such as how you turn your hands to affect which muscles do most of the work. For example, doing curls with your palms facing up primarily targets your biceps and if you turn your thumbs up with palms in, the brachioradialis does most of the work.
