Good form is the base of building sound posture. One of the areas where we see bad posture is in people who are fit, because some of them do not use good form. Its very easy to overlook the importance of having good technique. Most of us are driven by the desire to workout hard and burn calories until we just throw having good form out of the window.
When you use good form it supports good posture. Good posture will reduce your chances of injuries and improve your overall performance. Everyday we have bad sitting habits and work habits which destroys your posture then you come to the gym and make it worse. We apply a concept call mobility before strength. If your posture is bad, why would you build strength upon it. The better way is to improve your posture first by improving your mobility first and making sure you can go through the basic functional patterns such as squatting, lunging, hip flexion, and that your T-spine is mobile and can rotate freely along with extending and flexing. Then you build strength upon a functional system which has a chance to reap you maximum results from your training. Train smart. Please!
