6 The Fitness Equipment That We Must Avoid
Don't know these 6 machines in the gym that we should avoid; not everything is for everyone, and for this reason there are some that is best not to use if you want to keep a good and harmonious body shape. When you don't have a coach or is a lack of information, so machine can be harmful.
1 Stretch Legs Sitting On the Machine
This according to expert John (specialist in fitness classes), is not a good exercise since it is unnatural, since you have to move as the machine does. On the other hand, it also ensures that the fact that you are sitting to work for several hours and then you get to the gym to sit again is not a good idea. It is best you do squats, this way you'll move and you can prevent injuries.
2. Don't Do Chest Exercises Sitting
Again it stresses how unnatural this exercise to the body, since it generates a great tension in the area. The ideal to replace it would be for you to do push-ups according to your status (advanced or beginner) and so you can work all the muscles in the area, not just an isolated group of them in a way as it is done with machines.
3 Forget the Seated Hip Abductor
To exercise properly, you must use the weight of your own body instead of one additional. Better replace this exercise with elastic bands of resistance and thrusts; It works front and side and to exercise inner thighs area, used a ball between legs and tighten.
4. Not to Do Seated Shoulder Exercises
It can be harmful and cause injury to the shoulder; better, you elect to use weights or balls and get similar results. To achieve this, set yourself up front at a distance of two meters from a wall; catches the ball between your hands above your head and throw it against the wall.
5. Do Not Use Abdominal Machines
This type of equipment only works the abdominal external area, you get better results using tables; thus exercise shoulders, back, arms and abdominal. You can do oblique’s, frontal and in various positions.
6. Do Not Walk On Tape
Leave it for older persons; better get combined cardio exercises, get a few minutes to warm, then go to the bicycle, used high or slanted positions with the flat or low.
