January 22, 2015 2 min read

When it comes to working out, there are two ways to go about it:
  1. The wrong way.
  2. The right way.
Are you making any of these common mistakes and doing these moves totally wrong? Here are 5 of the most commonly abused exercise moves: 1. Planks Bad form: Hyperextended spine, torso touches or slopes towards the ground, lifted neck, and protracted shoulder blades. DSC_0359 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. DSC_0360 2. Lunges Bad form:Slouching forward, back knee is not bent properly, back is curved DSC_0362 Good form: Body is aligned properly, back knee bends enough to form a straight line from shoulder to hip to knee, and back is neutral. DSC_0363 3. Squats Bad form: Arched back, knees & toes turned inward, and knees extend beyond toes. DSC_0364 Good form: Shoulder & back are straight, knees do not extend beyond your toes, and buttocks stay above knee level. DSC_0367 4. Crunches  Bad form: Tucking the chin into your chest, jerking up into a crunch, raising yourself too high off the floor, and not keeping your abs contracted. DSC_0372 Good form:Lift shoulders about 3 inches up and off the floor, neck stays untucked without touching your chest at all, abs stay contracted throughout the exercise. DSC_0373 5. Push Ups Bad form: Elbows flared outward, torso touching the floor or butt is hunched upward, going down halfway or partially bending your arms. DSC_0376 Good form: Hands slightly shoulder width apart, elbows relatively kept close to the body, body is aligned, head is looking slightly forward-not downward, arms are straight at the top of your push-up.

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 4-6 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.


We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.


All of the BodyRock clothing is made to order and so is final sale. If you have any questions about sizing prior to placing your order, please contact us.
