Switch Up Your Routine to Reduce Injuries

We all have our gym/workout routines, but did you know that some of the exercises you do can cause injuries? It's not because the workouts are dangerous, but doing ONLY those exercises can lead to muscular imbalances. If you want to be safe, injury-free, AND develop a strong, well-rounded body,  try switching up the exercises below:

Squats

Everyone's favorite thigh exercise is great for shredding your legs, but try adding Bulgarian Split Squats and Step-Ups to get a more complete leg workout. Split-Squat

Deadlift

Working out your lower back and glutes can be easy with the deadlift. However, why not switch it out once a week with a Single-Leg Romanian Deadlift to add some variety?

Bent Over Row

Want to work your lats effectively? The Single Arm Dumbbell Row provides an alternative to the Bent Over Barbell Row that gives you a more isolated workout. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="680"] Source: bodybuilding.com[/caption]

Skull Crushers

With the EZ Bar, this is a great triceps shredder. Using the Alternating Dumbbell Skull Crusher will help you get a similar workout one arm at a time.

 

Barbell Overhead Press

Shredding your shoulders with the Floor Press or Alternating Dumbbell Bench Press is a good way to switch things up from the regular Barbell Overhead Press. [caption id="" align="aligncenter" width="595"] Source: bodybuilding.com[/caption]
