Gym Injuries

A lot of gym injuries come from repetitive movements, too much volume, or not enough balance in a program. In some cases a combination of all three. Often times it starts with only hurting during the workout (commonly a shoulder) or right after, then gets better, only to return again during the next workout. Obviously this isn’t all that can cause injuries, but it’s common. And if it is because of the reasons above, it’s avoidable.

Making a Case Against the Pec Deck

When thinking about ways to get in shape, maximize longevity, perform better, etc. I can’t help, but put the pec deck near the bottom of the list. Not to mention, there are plenty of other ways to use equipment that is already in most gyms to get similar training effects, making it kind of a redundant exercise/machine anyway.
