Keep fit by keeping proper form


Question: How do I stay motivated when I am constantly having to modify workouts to work around physical limitations such as with my knees, hips, shoulders, necks, wrists… ?

Expert: Scott Topjian of Latitude

Answer: Records. Keep track of the specifics of what you are doing: machine/exercise selection, the range of motion, the weight, seat settings, et cetera. Though your workout must be modified, if you can repeat it and record any progress, then you can track improvements in your condition. Ask your fitness professional for some new variations on those old favorites and you just might be surprised.
