You must escape many well-known exercises, because doing them you can receive injuries. If one of these exercises gives you good results, I’m sure, you’ll never listen to the doctor’s recommendation about something you shouldn’t do, and continue your training until you’ll get harm. I want to make you sure, that trick knee is a reason to teach a person which exercises to escape. I don’t want you to do exercises that can harm you or put a physical stress on your bones and joints instead of muscles, that’s why I advise you, women and men, to read this article about 7 exercises to escape.
1. Semiautomatic bench press machine
Bench press machine, also called “Smith” machine, is a metal construction with a rod you can move up and down. You may think that bench press machine is better than regular bench press, but you’re quite wrong! At gym, trainers always suggest traditional way of doing this exercise, it’s much effective, and your joints suffer less than while exercising on the bench press machine. The designers of this machine didn’t think about human body that can be asymmetric and that one arm may be shorter than the other. Lifting a rod that’s fixed on both sides won’t help you correct this tiny natural flaw but make it even worse! This is for sure one of the exercise to escape, because, on the one hand, we have the risk of harms, and on the other hand, the results won’t be satisfying.
2. Shifting your upper body while sitting
Trainers and doctors warn us escaping abs toning exercises that involve shifting the upper body while our lower body is fixed in one position. There are special shifting machine designed for this exercise, but it’s potentially dangerous for your health, it puts lots of physical press on your spine. Irrespective of how great the results may be, and your wish to have a sexy abs, you must escape this exercise!
3. Lat Machine Exercises
This is the third exercise you must escape! Lat machine is a great way to have properly defined shoulders but only if you’re doing the exercises right. Nowadays about 70% of the people do these exercises wrong, about 10% do them right, but not every time, and 20 % do them perfectly. Make sure that you are in the third group or do other easier exercises that train the same group of muscles.
4. Yoga Ball Assisted Squats
That’s popular exercise that involves placing a yoga ball on the wall, pressing your back onto it, relaxing and doing squats. You should know that this is an exercise to escape. There are two reasons why, first – it doesn’t do much for your gluteus and second – it puts a lot of stress on your knees and joints.
You may be surprised but regular squatting actually do more harm than use, and this is one of the exercises to escape doing at any cost! If you do this exercise every day, you’ve probably noticed that it puts a lot of stress on your lower back and what you probably didn’t know that is mostly useless. Most trainers suggest replacing your standard squatting with other exercises that target this area. I advise you to find the exercise that works best for you. You should remember that pain or stress in your back means that you’re doing the exercise in a wrong way or this exercise isn’t for you.
6. Machine flyes (pec deck) exercises
Machine flyes exercises helps to build impressive chest, but there is also a high risk to get injuries. If you can’t still understand why this exercise is one that should be escaped, I can explain you. It’s useful for you to know that overstretching the ligaments in your shoulders could make them loose.
7. Upright Row exercises
Any medical experts will say you, that exercises, which include pulling weight under your chin, are dangerous for your health. Change these potentially dangerous exercises on bent over row or front shoulder raise, the results will be the same but without health hazards.
