You're wrong: exercises you do to lose weight and are not worth anything

by Daniel Brown Digital Marketer

There are times of the year in which we usually become crazy sports and we aim massively at gyms. January, for that of the promises of New Year, or the return of the summer holidays, is the moments of greater ecstasy by the fitness.


To our momentary predisposition to have one of those "bodies 10", the invasion is joined in almost every corner of the well-known low-cost gymnasiums that already make sure that we do not have an excuse not to go to the gym: open all day ( the "I do not have time" is no longer worth it) and are very cheap (at least if you stop going you have not left the extra pay in your attempt to be hanged).


Of course, these types of centers are usually as crowded as the monitors (it seems that they do, they confirm that they exist) between "driving" the three classes of spinning, the corresponding GAP and pilates for experts, carry such a pace that it is complicated that they can help us and control that we use the machines well.

This, on the one hand, we must also recognize that there is a lot of "ready" that as "already knows everything" is self-monitoring and a great workout is designed without any professional help.


For the most part, aero drives have become fashionable, which, if not monitored by an expert, can result in significant damage (because, even if you are wearing a jersey, you are not a professional at Circo del Sol).


What is clear is that if we do not want to end up hurting ourselves, it is best to ask the expert monitors.

Nor is there any people on the ground after falling off the elliptical, but it is true that doing the exercises can cause injuries in the medium and long term. Not only that, when performed incorrectly do not translate either the longed for the chocolate tablet or the radical elimination of cellulite. Keep in mind that if you do the exercises wrong, they are not good for anything (well).



Exercises that at first sight (especially if you just look) may seem simple as the abs or the hardening of the pectorals if we do not do them correctly can lead to muscle problems or back problems and not a flat stomach.

As Lisa Hoehn explains in The Post Game, it is important to know if our fitness routine is appropriate and whether we do the exercises well "before passing training to the next level."

If you are one of those who has managed not to leave the gym at two months and you even plan to keep going, read carefully the exercises we usually do wrong and think how you do.



Abdominals: muscular contractures


It is quite common that, if we do them wrong, we end up doing damage to the neck and back with their contracted muscle contractures. Instead of making the effort from the abdomen and the obliques (the waist muscles), we use the back, neck and even the head to lift our body (another mistake: it is not necessary to climb at a 90 degree angle to exercise the abdominals) and besides contracting we did not exercise the muscles we wanted.

Hoehn refers to a study by San Diego State University in which they explain that "the abdominals require more force from the frontal muscles of the abdomen than from the obliques, and this movement can create a force imbalance in the nucleus causing problems of the back."



Iron: watch your back


The force in this exercise does not depend so much on the muscles of the arms or legs as obliques, and many times we do not notice and, to keep us up, we end up arching the back doing damage to the lumbar and shoulder blades.

In the aforementioned study, the researchers found that if done properly by helping with the abdomen and muscular endurance, practicing this exercise should help reduce the risk of developing back pain in the future. Precisely one of the objectives of the iron is the strengthening of the muscles of the back, and if it is not done well, it can cause serious damage to the spine.


Peck Deck: good for the chest, bad for the shoulders



Supposedly this machine is designed to strengthen the chest muscles, but, as highlighted in the research, the problem is that "it puts the shoulder joint in an extremely vulnerable position, as it closes and opens."


If we have previous back problems (whether or not they are diagnosed), the use of the Peck Deck is not recommended due to the damage it can cause to our shoulders and neck.

It can be useful in the case of people with a muscular back and exercised although, be careful, because "this machine can also cause injuries in healthy athletes."



Weightlifting on bench: good triceps at the expense of shoulder blades

Although research has shown that this basic exercise is excellent for building strength in the chest and triceps, it is also quite common to produce shoulder injuries.

Also, "the bank itself limits the natural movement in the shoulder blades putting enormous pressure on the rotator muscles" so there are many experts who consider it unsafe and do not recommend doing it alone.


Pectoral exercises: important to distribute body weight


With these exercises, in theory, we should develop the muscles of the pectorals, triceps, and shoulders, but it usually happens that in the end the back and neck are forced and even, according to which they are practiced, we damage the knees by supporting the weight of the body on them.
