5 Highly Risky Exercises

5 Highly Risky Exercises

Though the idea to start working out is good one, many people do a lot of exercises that can be injurious to your body. You should carefully analyze your workout and also talk to a gym instructor before deciding on your workout regime. Remember to learn the form of each exercise before performing it and not to overexert yourself while doing it. Here are some exercises that are misconstrued and can be injurious to your body.

1) Lat Pull-down Behind the Head:
Only people with very mobile shoulder joints can keep their spines straight enough to do this exercise properly. So if you do this exercise even a bit wrong it can cause a tear in the rotator cuff.

2) Military Press behind the Head:
This type of form is also injurious because it will damage your rotator cuff but also manage to cause a cervical vertebrae injury if the barbell hits your neck.

3) Upright Row:
The upright row can cause an injury to your shoulder muscles and it may even cause you back pain if you take a lot of extra weight.

4) Leg Press with Cramped Knees:
Though a leg press is a common exercise where you plate up and bring it down in this common exercise to work the quadriceps, hamstrings, and gluts. However, if you extend your knees past the 90 degree angle without supporting your back then you can injure knee joints.

5) Squats on the Smith Machine:
The bar on this machine is very rigid which puts the body at risk. Many tend to put their feet farther in front of their bodies which can cause you to cramp.
