Make sure to have your body stretched on muscles that will be activated. Do stretches before and after your exercises! We stretch before to be more flexible for our muscles to perform full range exercises, and we stretch after to prevent soreness!
Many people have the reasonable fear about doing the exercise incorrectly. This is because people don't have the education to know what they are doing. The main concepts to think about when performing the exercise is to ask yourself this:
1) What movement will cause certain muscles to contract and stretch?
2) What is the maximum range of motion I can perform?
3) Do I feel the targeted muscles being activated?
4) What is the correct posture when I perform the exercise?
