A pet peeve of mine is fitness trainers overusing training tips. A big one that I’ve found is when they tell you to, “Pull Your Shoulders Down.” Although it is good advice, because of all the sitting and typing we do these days, you don’t want it to run your life.

Finding the middle path of not too high (like while typing) or too low.
