It is useful, therefore, to describe in detail the processes involved in actually doing these exercises. This will help beginners to start using the correct techniques before moving on to potentially more dangerous heavy weights. If it also helps more experienced lifts to eliminate some little mistakes that occurred almost imperceptibly over the years, all the better.
