How many times have you done an exercise & then as soon as you finish you feel pain. You might feel it in your lower back or your shoulder but you find yourself thinking did I do something wrong or does this exercise just suck. Well it really isn't always you. There are a lot of exercises out there that are plain bad for you & they only continue to exist just because they've been passed down from one misinformed gym to the next, & noones been smart enough to realize that these common exercises are no good. So today we're going over 10 exercises that all men should avoid & these exercises aren't only exclusive to men. Women should avoid these exercises as well it's just that in this video we'll be sticking to exercises that i usually find men doing wrong. The very first one that I want to start with is actually a group of exercises that guys are drawn to like moths to a flame. I'm talking about all the selectorizor ab machines at your local gym. The machines that you usually start by sitting down pulling out the pin, selecting your weight, then grabing some handles behind your head & doing crunches. These machines are not only a waste of time but they are also dangerous for your lower back. All these selectorizor ab machines are locked into a range of motion, meaning that your joints & your disks can't travel down their natural path, you can only travel down the path that the machine has set for you. Even if you adjust the machine to your body perfectly, which by the way is very hard to do, but even if you somehow had a machine customized for your body you can still easily run into lower back issues because you're still locked in a set range of motion throughout the entire exercise. Besides a greater potential for a lower back injury you will also get significantly less results from these machines than if you stuck to regular ab exercises like crunches, hanging knee tucks, & declined situps. The reason is once again due to the fact that your locked into a range of motion. The core's main responsibility is stabilization. And it's important to improve your functional core strength because your core isn't only responsible for stabilizing your trunk but it stabilizes your whole body. It is the bridge that connects your lower body to your upper body. When you're locked in a range of motion you take all of the stabilization normally required for ab exercises out of the movement. The really ironic part is that those abdominal stabilizer muscles that you're not working on these machines are very important to strengthen in order to prevent the lower back injury that you'll likely experience on one of these machines. Due to the fact that you're not working your stabilizers you're missing out on all of those deep tissue abdominal muscles like your transverse abdominus & your only targeting mostly your rectus abdominus which is the very outer layer six pack looking muscle. The transverse abdominus is very important to work because not only does it help prevent injury, but it also pulls your stomach in keeping everything nice & tight giving you that flat stomach look. If you want to make your ab exercises tougher use weights by simply holding a dumbbell or a plate either behind your head or accross your chest while doing regular traditional ab exercises. Once again if you don't know where to start start with exercises like stability ball crunches, declined situps, & hanging knee tucks. The next exercise you should avoid is the behind the head shoulder press. First off there is absolutely no advantage to going behind your head. None. Even though I'm sure some old school guys will be disagreeing with me in the comments below you can research this yourself & you'll find that when you go behind the head you're still targeting the same muscles that you would if you went in front of your head & there's no advantage when going behind your head that will allow you to build your shoulder muscle faster. Instead what will happen when you go behind the head is you'll be putting your shoulders in a very compromised position. To go behind your head you'll have to externally rotate your arms outward putting your rotator cuff in a very unstable & weak position. This will immediately require you to lower the weight that your using for your shoulders. This already creates a huge disadvantage when compared with just going in front of your head with a heavier weight. By lifting a heavier weight in front of your head you'll get more strength improvements & more muscle gains
If you want your videos to sound more professional, every time you can say "due to the fact" you can say "because" instead. This is BECAUSE it's less wordy. It's not "due to the fact" that it's less wordy. See the difference? One has 4 more words than the other.
Agree with everything, but one, leg press. You try to do barbell squats with an already injured lower back. Or even better, do deadlifts with an injured lower back. And before you comment about recovery, keep in mind that lower back problems are pretty much permanent. So? Any practical real advice for that?
You are wrong about the the hip abduction it's a very good exercise for man. It increase your speed and makes for good hips. More man should try it even if it looks girly. Makes me wonder if you actually know for certain what you talking about....
Forgot the shoulder side lateral raise machine that screwed my shoulder up twice. Didn't even do heavy weight and lots of people have the same opinion because of injury. Stay away from this machine there's better exercises.
Let me sum it all up in a short sentence so you don't waste your time watching. 1. Don't lift anything above your ankles. 2. Don't lift anything above your knees. 3. Don't lift anything above your waist. 4. Don't lift anything above your chest. 5. Don't lift anything above your shoulders. 6. Don't lift anything above your head. 7. Don't lift anything, period.
Watching the video and reading the comments I feel I must make a comment on this one. First consideration is the purpose of your workout i.e. Bodybuilding, Power Lifter or daily overall Fitness. The common ground between each is education in your selected choice of workout. Like any other workout its all about "FORM". With the right knowledge and execution all movements can be advantageous to a productive workout. I have found out over my life time most injuries were do to the lack of understanding the exercise, the body part (parts) and its role in overall body movements. Ive been doing Martial Arts for 55 years, bodybuilding for 40, military for 20+ to include physical Training Instructor and have trained and worked with many of the US elites. Good mentors for me were Arnold Schwarzenegger and Bruce Lee. Just educate yourself, Im 63 and I still workout weekly. Remember its all about "FORM".
Nailed it. Looks like you had a talk with my orthopedist. If you're young enough you can survive about anything, which explains why so many guys here disagree with this video. In twenty or thirty years, all these guys will be crumpled quivering blobs of pain and injury.
I end up having to change 80% of my training scheme ;) But in training my shoulders by lowering the bar behind the head, I usually complain of the neck pain you are talking about. So at least I'll try to find an alternative for this exercise.
This was a good video, I'm not very much into weight training but the straight bar behind the head and pull-up row, I've been doing those all my life whenever I bothered to do anything weight training, but I won't be doing them anymore now. The whole premise you had in this video, that any training movement that is unnatural is either useless and/or harmful makes sense.
What sucks most neighborhood community/apartment complex gyms have these shitty fixed machines and limited free weights. They do this to avoid lawsuits because assholes get litigious and sue bc they hurt themselves, so everyone else suffers :(
I saw Arnie doing a behind head lat pull on a recent YT vid of him at 71 years old. Maybe he can get away with it and us mere mortals cannot. I must say I prefer in front of the head for both lat pulls and presses, as it just feels right/natural.
You know, you really need to get another job - why? - because @2:02 you are seriously uninformed, because the TRUNK OR TORSO IS AN INTERCHANGEABLE (ANATOMICAL) TERM FOR THE CENTRAL PART THE HUMAN BODY - it is not separate/different as you point out erroneously.
The Take Away. Be careful with machines and if you use them, learn how to use them correctly. Learn your body. What works for you may not work for others and vice versa. People who talk with their hands are annoying and distracting which is too bad because this guy is a good orator but too wordy, less is more.Thigh Machines should be banned from gyms because the only guys who use them are the pervs in short shorts....am I right.
I strained my lower back muscles on that smith machine a few weeks back that literally took me out and i was in so much pain/ Thank God its was a strain and not a herniated disc.. def wont be using it again. Fortunately i'm back to normal function.
It depends on so many things,to say that we should avoid these is a bunch of horse shit,you can screw your shoulders on a normal bench press that doesnt mean you should avoid it,the gym is not for the weak.
I think I have at one time done nearly all of these. Where was your channel 20 years ago? lol You cold have saved me from injuring my rotater cuff in 1996. I was working my shoulders and I reached out to set the weight down when I should of leaned forward. That put me out of the gym for years.
I knew to avoid most of these, but I've never even seen a Seated Torso Rotation Machine (7:38)! Jeeze, just looking at the movement it follows (in a locked position) makes me cringe! It looks SO blatently bad for your spine I'm surprised anybody uses 'em! Good video with clear concise explanations. A lot of comments have indicated that he's spouting 'bro-science', but all of these exercises have been known to be bad for you for a while now.....tons of other videos / articles / forums advise against these exercises too.
