    Default What Exercises do you avoid. why?

    I avoid sldl because I can not simply do them, for me its dangerous to my lower back. I also avoid the hack squat machine as i get pain in my knees.

    Ive heard people avoiding upright rows, but i do them?
    Player is the hero Ausbb deserves, but not the one it needs right now. So we'll hunt him, because he can take it. Because he's not a hero. He's a single guardian, a watchful protector.

    I tend to avoid anything that puts strain on my lower back because of this I haven't done any proper squats or deadlifts in my program yet

    I tend to avoid any shoulder movements which feel uncomfortable, upright rows dont feel great, behind the neck press definitely a no-no
    Not sure why, but my right shoulder has a twinge every now and then from footy days. Even the one hand - open palm method on the steering wheel is uncomfortable sometimes.
    Training Since December 2011

    Skull crushers / LTE's are hit and miss. It's a little better now but l wont be doing them anymore as there not in my program.

    Front squats, simply because l have the co-ordination and flexibility of a crab.

    I avoid curling in the squat rack.

    I actually tried those for the first time ever last week and after 3 light sets decided the sheering load across my kness was not worth it.

    I read a tiny bit on EFTS the other day from Jpeg, his suggestion is box jumps are not really much more than a test of hip mobility UNLESS there is vertical dissplacement of the hip. (the box is higher than your hips)

    I am now condsidering some kind of experiment looking at the comparison of box jumps to say Hi-Pulls or some other movement aimed at force rate production like a dynamic Squat.
