Best Practices – Sending Your Coach Videos



My #onlineclient Mallory Hagberg – getting her 95lbs back squat on.

Frequently, I ask my clients to send me camera 📷 videos of them performing the exercises assigned.

🎥 Filming yourself in gym while everyone else is working out, does take a bit of courage, as you are setting up the camera, and you think (but it is not always true) that people are watching you. With a little practice, you get how to set up the camera to get the best angle, and how long you can film so that it will send through facebook or even as a text —my US/International clients – use facebook – longer videos can be sent than a text.

Checking form is pretty straightforward nowadays, and everyone seems to have a phone with a video camera option, so even if it is not the best quality, as long as I can always SEE 👁 the movement, in the frame of the camera, I can give you feedback.

I have spend years in gym coaching clients, so I know how the movement should look and what corrections we may or may not have to make.

YOU can even check your own form, by videoing your movement – just to make sure. The camera picks up on what you CANNOT see.

🏋️‍♂️Beginners start with the bar, to about 85lbs.

👍95lbs on a back squat is approximately an intermediate level

🙌🏻Once you start back squatting your weight and onward – with solid full range of motion form (right?) you are moving more into the advanced stages of training.

Great job Mallory!
