I always give modifications in my sessions with clients. There is no shame if you have to modify exercises/ movement. We have been conditioned to believe that if we don’t go hard in every session we won’t get the results that we want.
I am here to tell you that modifying an exercise and using a variation that works for you and your body at that moment will actually get you to your results faster. The reason for this is because a. you will be using proper form and technique and b. you are not breaking your body down. Yay, for taking care of our bodies!
The “plus” of this is a. your workouts will be more enjoyable and b. you will get the results you want in a safe way.
Modifying exercises is not, I repeat, is not taking the easy way out. You are trusting and listening to your body. YOU are taking care of YOU.
