Perform all your reps and switch sides. People who do strengthening and toning exercises in an effort to trim fat from a certain area thighs, hips, stomach, or arms have the wrong idea. Although these exercises can help firm.

2 days ago · Per Bernal The Best Lower-Body Exercise for Back Pain: Zercher Squat Why it’s good: If you can’t imagine life without barbell squats, the Zercher squat is a front-loaded variation that allows. “Compound low-impact movements are the best exercises for weight loss as these movements involve multiple major muscle groups, resulting in max calorie burn and. “Most people,” Gentilcore explains, “do nothing but bench presses, lat pulldowns, curls, and crunches in the gym” — all exercises that further force us into that curled-forward, semifetal position.

The Best (and Worst) Diets of 2020, According to Experts One reason people perform standard exercises wrong has to do with their musculature. For example, super strong quads can. Focus on what you can do, not what you can’t.

  • For professionnal acrobats, we do a lot of forward flexion with rotational movement, not the same exercises though. For example, crunches with legs extended to the ceiling, reaching contralateral hand to foot, or hanging from a bar with arms over head (hands anatomically, palms forward) and doing toe touches to the bar lateral our hands (on each side of the pinky, not inbetween the thumbs). What is your stance on some of the extreme movements we have to condition as acrobats? Although, I can say confidently that I have not done the vast majority of these workouts and the ones I have done, I do not do anymore.

  • There isn’t alternative exercise for each of em but some can be replaced like
    1. Instead of Sit ups Doing knee raises or leg raises with a hollow body position or on the bar
    2. Bench dips can be done with a adjustment in hand position
    Watch this https://youtu.be/jdFzYGmvDyg
    3. Quad extension can be replaced by Body weight leg extensions
    4. Twist can be replaced with Bicycle crunches or oblique raises
    I’m no expert but hope this helps feel free to suggest or correct ��

  • Can you guys recommend a physical therapy table? �� i have been searching like crazy to no avail, they either are poorly made or WAY too expensive
    Being home during covid has made me realize what a great investment one would be while i work on my P.T

  • Absolutely right. Most of people doing gym have shoulder impingement (including me) and will suffer back pain sciatica or disc at a certain point…

  • What about the stance the snooker player adopt during the game. They bend over with shoulders about 45% to the pelvis and bend 90% from their hips with the head tilted back the furthest they could go.

  • I blew out two discs doing those sit-ups on a weight bench with my feet wrapped under the leg lift contraption. Been suffering bc of it for twenty years. Wish I’d had this advice back then.

  • I’d have to disagree on the sit ups
    I only do 15 to 3o sit ups a day
    And push ups,side bends, leg lifts
    As long as I don’t kill it, just do a handful
    No problem

  • Not the best advice. Your body is very receptive to adapting to exercise and can handle loads efficiently. In fact, people like these individuals laying on the narrative that if you do certain exercises, you will have pain, is exactly why people are afraid of moving which leads to inactivity and weakness. It’s nearly impossible to prove that a certain exercise will lead to pain or injury, rather it’s more of an issue of proper loading.

  • The quads one I actually do it by putting weights on my ankles and lift my leg starting at 45°. It honestly fixed my pathellofemoral syndrome. The triceps one I can confirm it’s very likely it caused the shoulder pains I have now

  • Thank you! I’ve done Russian Twists periodically, but will rethink that, now. What are your thougths on: 1) TRX standing side flexions (similar to the standing side bends)? and 2) Side crunches laying on the BOSU with feet staggered against wall, then small side crunch with no twist? Thanks!

  • Thanks Bob and Brad!!! Can you create an owner’s manual for human beings that will explain how our bodies work, that everyone gets when they are born?

  • As most of the new generation does not do sports, this problem will solve itself. ok, other problems will replace the inactivity……..

  • Crunches I would say are absolutely safe and theraputic. I will agree, however, that rotational movement are detremental. Not only rotation, but unilateral movements and unilateral isometric contractions using weights are a huge no.

  • wtf i just stumbled onto this channel and after hearing your intro song I was HOOKED you two are def my favorite physical therapists on the internet xD

  • Most of this I knew already but good video overall. BTW, don’t appreciate the slam of OTs. Keep it civil within the therapy community plz!

  • CAN YOU PLEASE COMMENT ON MOBILITY MASTERS LIKE IDO PORTAL, PROBABLY DOING EVERYTHING YOU SAY NOT TO? MAYBE BODY IS MORE RESILIENT THAN YOU ASSUME?

  • I am 47 years old and i like kitesurfing.What is your opinion about this exercise?The sport is new and we don’t know nothing about the reactios on our body!

  • People always neglect scientists and they get injured then they run to them for medical help, then they get better then they hurt themselves again and the cycle repeat, i do resistance training everyday but whatever scientists say i support

  • A guided meditation for illumination of the energy body and the meridians https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jl-QAGTWIjc&feature=youtu.be

  • Seeing that first exercise reminds me of the modern golf swing that restricts hip movement. This video proves that the modern restricted hip movement golf swing is bad for the back. Let the hips move with the spine you will hit it longer and safer.

  • I really don’t know what doctors with more knowledge say about all this as these folks are just as youtuber as others. What about people who live in other parts of the world, what about stress, and other issues, what about reviews of other people on YouTube videos regarding exercises, what about gyms all over the United States and their reputation. Confining health issues by focusing only on the physical motions is not a complete science. Their opinions are based on one segment of medical science, and top of that rigidly discarding other fields and calling them fakers and wrong doers looks fishy to me. Now what other YouTubers say about my comments, we’ll see!

  • I learned these were horrible exercises, after years of AAU and collegiate hurdles. I had a hernia repair, at 32. All from overtraining and wrongful exercises

  • It’s 2020, let’s get that 15 alternatives and if it’s already made, put it in the description of this video. You guys rock! Keep up the good work!

  • My husband is an old school weight lifter. I have told him some of his techniques are outdated! I have shared with him. Thanks for great video!

  • In school these were the common PE class exercises…it been many years since then…probably had a LOT to do with why my back is so frucked up now.
    Very saaaad!

  • I agree with mostly all of this except for military press. My shoulders have never felt better since I started military pressing more frequently. Your shoulders were designed to be able to press overhead.

  • I damaged my knee putting weights, just the way you are explaining…I am really bad, now what I can do to reverse the damage,..please answer me, I am in pain because of it. Thanks

  • So what do you do instead? Haha I literally woke up with level 4 pain in my lower back and thinking its sciatica (L5 is a cracked tailbone I had or stitches on the arch of my foot). Would swimming be a good alternative? Like breastroke? I’m an absolute beginner at exercises except for 7 yrs as a child gymnast Im sure my core strength will be a killer again After my foot injury my podiatrist was surprised my core was so strong even after 15yrs haha

  • What a joke! Your body is build for movments in different positions. If you workout correctly, these excersises are not bad for you! Sure there is other “better” excersises you can do if you got isssues. It sound like Bob and Brad are 100 years old. By this logic you should live your life like a robot, never bend your back and be as stiff as you can..

  • Hi, I’m a Physical Medicine & Rehab/Pain doc in LA and I love your videos (and your theme song!). I wish there was more content on the internet like what you’re creating: good, basic, universally entertaining physical and medical knowledge. I’d love to collaborate on a “15 Alternatives” video and have you guys fact check some of the exercises I prescribe to pretty much all of my patients. Also I would love any advice you have about starting a channel about function from a medical perspective. I hope you reach out to me, and keep up the great work!

  • I can vouch for the damage sit ups can cause….I ended up with a herniated disc in 1986 after going to the gym to ‘get fit’….took years to get right.

  • Basically all twist exercise and internal shoulder rotation exercises are bad and half the stuff you do in the gym, I think this is only if you do it for a long period of time with heavy weights though. thoughts?

  • Aw dang I thought windmills felt so good while doing them, but I’m glad not to do any of the other things ever again. If they feel uncomfortable, it’s most likely bad. And twisting is alway explained to be detoxing your body, but it’s actually harming your spine. What are your guys’ thoughts on mini trampoline workouts?

  • Oh.My.God. Thank goodness I’m a lazy weight lifter!! I am fairly safe with core stuff (opera singer so can’t overdo), but I’ve done the shoulder twisting and the windmills. I’ll go looking for exercises I should do to keep strong, but not stiff!

  • you have a good body and some good knowledge but the good coach doesn’t say don’t do this or that…. any good coach (trainer ) knows that for each person works differently and a good trainer doesn’t say DONT! says avoid! and there is big difference between 2
