Physique-Deficiencies That Make Exercise Dangerous

Most everything in life has a risk benefit ratio.

Exercise is no exception: there are some risks to each type of exercise: you might tweak an ankle walking along the sidewalk, or skin a knee rollerblading. Some of the higher intensity exercises have greater risks, such as knee injuries in long distance runners or swimmer shoulder.

Rounded shoulders, forward head posture, tight hips, ankle weakness, and inactive glutes make for exercise risks.

These muscle and ligament conditions can be genetic, but often they are mostly due to poor training, poor posture, and compounded by lack of nutrition.

Personal fitness plans can address these concerns and help you be your best physique!
