❌Partial Reps- Limited range of motion will limit what muscles are being targeted. Unless trying to isolate quads, you will not be able to engage your glutes and hamstrings as effectively without 100% range of motion.
❌Neck Movement- Here is a naturally tendency that many people have when straining. You have to be conscious to keep your neck straight in order to maintain spinal alignment.
