My boyfriend and I started doing Insanity together and we need help figuring out a question about exercise.
He critiqued some of the moves I "modified." He saw me not doing a deep squat, for instance, and he told me I should never sacrifice form. He thinks it is better to do 1 deep squat instead of 20 squats where I don't go as deep. I tried telling him that how deep I go into a squat is not necessarily form, so I don't think that the whole "don't sacrifice form for quantity" applies in that situation. I've done other workouts, that tell you if you need to, you should modify the move until you can do the move full on. I am wondering what other people think about this?
In my defense, I told him that I think it is better if I can do 20 of the modified so I can build my strength to get to the regular move instead of barely doing any of the regular moves. I mean, that's how most ladies start doing push-ups, we start doing "girl" push-ups and work our way into the regular push-ups.
I thought bad form was something more along the lines of where you go into a move with a form that could potentially hurt you?
