Things you learn when you make a video of yourself working out

At-home exercising apps really are fantastic and I love using my Sworkit app – I’m in my living room every morning huffing and puffing, swing weights around and trying to do push-ups. The only down side of working in my living room is that I can’t see myself performing the exercises. I just have to…
