I've actually had a guy comment about my form in the gym, and I know that all he was trying to do was help me and I really appreciate that, but it has made me so insecure and I try to avoid the gym at all costs even though they have all of the weights and equipment that I don't have that I really want to use.

Interesting video so far. I had to stop at five min since it`s getting too late, but I`ve a few points I`d like to adress, expound upon, or just plain disagree with.
First, and while she briefly mentions it, is the amount of reps.
Generally, the number 12, or 12-15 as she mentions, is typical because it`s supposed to tell you how long your muscles are under tension. Time under tension. To trigger better muscle growth, the muscle should be under tension ( in a set) for (at least), forty seconds. She says one should do the exercises slowly in order to maintain proper form, but an important point ( biceps curl as an example) is that one should be careful not to neglect the second part of the exercise. A curl has two parts. The way up, and the way down. Now, what most people do, I too used to do it, is that they lift and drop. Lift and drop. This, to put it mildly, hurts your potential gains. You`re basically not doing half of the exercise. In many lifting (and pressing exercises too), you have an explosive component (of course, this can vary depending on what your goal with the exercise is) and "the other". I`ll call it the drop, since I can`t remember the correct term. Now, back to the number of reps. If you simply do 12 reps, lift-drop, lift-drop, you`re probably done in twenty seconds, not the forty you`ll want. To get that, you simply control the "drop", fight it, for perhaps two-three seconds, and voila. You`ve got the forty sec under tension. (You may also note that when you`re doing this, you`re going to have to lower the weights. This is natural, as you`re increasing the amount of work your muscles have to.)

* Stretching:
You have two types of stretching: Static and dynamic. Now, what she recommends is static stretching, which seeks to elongate the muscle fibres. She also mentions blood flow. From what I`ve read myself, this doesn`t actually seem like a good idea, if you`re training for muscle growth, that is. From what I understand, this type of stretching will sort of disturb the muscles before you`ve begun working out. After all, if you`re training for growth, you`re not training for mobility and flexibility. You`re training for size, which is why you shouldn`t do static stretching before working out. From I`ve experienced, and read, it`s better to do dynamic stretches; meaning stretches that lasts short periods, maybe as little as five seconds, to increase the mobility of the muscles (and get the blood flowing as she mentioned), as your goal in pre-workout stretching is to loosen the muscles, not actually stretch them. Static stretching should rather be done before you`re going to sleep, as muscles recover most during sleep. (You should also have, for many other reasons besides, have a regular sleeping schedule if possible.)

One more point. Squats. What she`s saying is a half-truth as far as I`m concerned. It`s more difficult to do squats lower than the knees, true, but it`s not true that you can`t get a good workout out of them. If that`s the case, and you`re not getting enough out of them, you can a) increase the reps, or b) do a dumbbel squat or something else to increase the difficulty. Simply grab a weight, and hold it in front of you as you do the squat. This`ll also move your center of gravity where it should be. Additionally, what she`s recommending here seems to me to be based upon anecdotal evidence (which my recommendations also are…go figure.. but check out Athleanx for advice. That guy is a professional, a training genius and his stuff is free too!), but my point is that doing squats below the knees can be dangerous for those of you with knee pain. Or without. Just because you`re not in pain now doesn`t mean you wont be in a month, a year or a decade. Be careful. No pain, no gain is, to put it bluntly, bullshit. If you`re in pain, besides from what the muscles are telling you, you seriously need to stop and figure out what you`re doing wrong, or if you`ve already got some problems in a joint or muscle you`re involving in the exercise. Be very, very aware of what your limitations are. Once injured, it`ll likely take a while to go away, and also likely pop up again easier than before. Limitations suck, but they can be worked around if you know what they are. Injuries are more difficult.
Anyway, interesting video, but be careful when taking advice from people including me of course. Check with other sources (not just any mind. There`s a lot of bullshit out there, but this channel seems to have good advice, though it seems to be a bit too personal and based on personal experience and not based on science as I believe all advice should be. Haven`t seen more of her content though, so she may prove me wrong.

Good luck with training today
