Here are 5 of the most commonly abused exercise moves:

Planks

Bad form: Hyperextended spine, torso touches or slopes towards the ground, lifted neck, and protracted shoulder blades.

Good form: Spine is neutral from head to tail, neck is neutral as well, as you are facing towards the ground, and shoulders are down and back. Only toes, forearms, and hands are touching the ground.

Lunges
