What is the proper POSITION or POSTURE in which to perform the exercise?
Is the body properly aligned? (i.e. core control, shoulder, hip position)
Does it maximize the use of resistance? (i.e. the PULL and/or the resistance of gravity)

Posture refers to the positioning, or alignment, of the various parts of the body in relation to one another. Correct body positioning and alignment are perhaps the most important considerations in preventing many of the problems that develop from aging and the stresses of work.

Proper posture helps prevent:

  1. fatigue
  2. headache
  3. eye strain
  4. chronic muscular tension
