Practice is what we do when we want to learn something well. We rehearse, we prepare, we study, and we train. All skill sets are approached this way and exercise is no different. Workouts are where we practice the skills of exercise. Mastering technique is the focus; the better you do it, the better it works. It helps to have a planned place and time to practice. Having a partner and using the mirrors can give you guidance and feedback on good form. Study well.
