Although Instagram is great for keeping up with the personal lives of your friends, it is also excellent for getting workout ideas. There are tons of workout videos that you can benefit from.
Among the thousands of fitness Instagram accounts, only a select few primarily post high-quality videos of their workouts. These posts typically have back to back videos demonstrating each exercise in the workout and they often give pointers on how many sets and reps should be done for each exercise. By studying these videos you learn how to improve your form and of course, you can even try these workouts for yourself.
Most other fitness Instagrammers post pictures of them hanging out in their everyday lives, which can certainly be entertaining and even inspiring, but these posts might not necessarily be as informational.
In this post, you can discover the best workout Instagram accounts for taking your fitness game to the next level.
