Strengthening improperly can impede results and lead to injury

Here 4 of things i see people doing to strengthen but actually will prevent you from getting stronger or at least limiting your ability. Most people are doing a combination of all or some of these. Based on the mere numbers of people doing these, it is apparent that these movements are considered viable for strengthening in the fitness industry and aspects of the medical industry.

The reality is that the only thing that never lies and is pure in its understanding is science. An understanding of physics, kinesiology, biomechanics, kinematics, kinetics comes in handy when you are trying to get stronger. Understanding these principles helps you maximize your efficiency in performing the appropriate exercises needed to accomplish your goals whether resolving pain, maximizing muscle for looking better, losing weight, maintaining functionality or addressing systemic disease.


I am going to present these 4 techniques and what is wrong with doing them as well as why they can potentially lead to injury. Then it is up to you. if you want to keep doing them because everybody else is, that is your prerogative. It you want to get further instruction in how to perform these or any other exercises correctly for whatever reason you are looking to get stronger, then you can contact me by email at:
