Good form = function + no injuries.
Whatever you do, always focus on good form which means a lot of mobility and correct movement. Do that and you will progress quickly and will never have any problems with injuries

And as for movement it’s the deadlift
Least favorite exercise is the Handstand Push Up – but only when I’m fat or carry extra weight.
Least favorite WOD is Fran!
Sleep – so that I can grow and recover and get gainzzz. Even when I sleep I’m training

“Give it up” – you know who you are 😉
Start slow and focus on technique and be sure to be very patient. Always chose technique over weight. Set realistic and achievable goals and don’t be influenced by athletes and trying to emulate them – it will take a while and the journey is very important
