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.

The "best home workout equipment" varies from person to person. Some may consider their free weight gym the best, the most integral part of their fitness equipment. Others will tell you their indoor pool is the best. Still others will swear by their inclined treadmills as the best. Some will tell you that their best equipment is the lack of it, that all they need are their own bodies to do calisthenics or skip rope.

You are right albabu466. The exercise is vary person to person which as regular people do is less exercise than a athletic player. The regular people never require full of exercise with their body but the players like a triathlon player required tough exercise. You can see here how triathlon player are preparing their self.

is a treadmill or running better?

There is a lot you can do on a treadmill but it's still not quite the same as running, at least that's my thoughts. But I still use the treadmill at the gym all the time.

Due to lower back degenerative disc disease at the age of 34, I am finding that I have to avoid just about everything but the swimming pool.
