However, very often the chase for entertainment value leads to busy workouts with lots of exercises and movements. This in turn. increases the chances that gym-goers end up doing things they aren't ready for or prepared to do. And movement patterns that should be spent working on quality and technique by correcting the movement, is instead challenged with speed, weight and volume.

In the long term, this can create stagnation and in the worst case; lead to injuries in the gym. But luckily, there are strategies and systems available that also values quality of movement and ways to both screen and correct movement patterns.
