Exercise Variations We Love and Hate
In this episode of Peach Pit Fitness hosts Meredith and Jenn discuss exercises that are often overhyped and may not be the best for everyone. They share a story about a client who experienced a back spasm during a single arm fly exercise and discuss the importance of choosing exercises that are appropriate for an individual's goals and physical condition. They also highlight the potential risks of exercises like curtsy lunges and triceps kickbacks and suggest alternative exercises that may be more effective and safer.
- Choosing exercises that are appropriate for an individual's goals and physical condition.
- Exercises that involve balancing or unstable surfaces may not always be the best choice, especially for individuals with joint issues or pain.
- Machines can be a valuable tool in strength training and may offer more controlled and efficient resistance compared to free weights.
- Exercises that violate the natural structure of the body, such as curtsy lunges, may increase the risk of injury and may not provide significant benefits compared to alternative exercises.
