injuries this is without a doubt one of the most commonly injured areas why because most people attempt exercises like squats and lunges without having a clue as to how to perform them even worse is the fact that some trainers don't know what they're doing common complaints include worn-out cartilage toran tendons and muscle imbalances that can miss align the joint and are caused by excessive training in one discipline number two shoulder pain this is the most versatile and complex joint and the body as it moves in all planes of motion too many trainees load up the weights on heavy overhead shoulder presses and do nothing to distract them the rotator cuff a group of internal muscles that provide the shoulder with stability the result is that without the stability needed for control it can lead to rotator cuff tears constraints a loss of range of motion and weakness you must include some proper rotator exercises twice each week number three tennis elbow no you don't have to play tennis to get this injury and actually known nanny bodybuilders succumb to this one tennis elbow is an inflammation of the tendon near the outside of the elbow and unfortunately it's not a very easy injury to deal with it's usually caused by overuse of the forearm extensors most people over train their arms as everybody wants to have big guns Plus you use your hands and almost every exercise make sure at the first sign of any discomfort you rest ice your injury and give it time to calm down and proceed cautiously when you try exercising again number four bicep strain this is a common injury in men that are diehard bicep curling guys lot of people lift their egos in the gym not the weight and then up cheating or swinging to weight up this place is tremendous strain on the biceps and tendons which are relatively small muscles I've seen strains tendon tears and even a complete bicep here where the muscle itself detach –is and balls up near the shoulder joint it's unsightly and can only be fixed by painful surgery the moral of the story is only lift weight that's appropriate and don't worry about showing off number five throwing pull they leave life makes this muscle on the inside of your thighs super stiff and a bit weak when you start exercising it can be quite a shot in this muscle is one that strains very easily dot people on their very first rep of a lunch pull this muscle for a blink be sure to take new exercise ranges of motion slowly to give your body a chance to acclimate number six back pain let's face it we've all experienced this one doc injuries are often cause outside the gym often by sitting all day in poor posture while people hurting their backs the most common complaint comes during abdominal work a lot of trainees are mirror exercisers meaning they only work the muscles they can see they don't realize that your abs and back both need to be trained to support each other otherwise and already weak lower back gets even more strained by excessive abdominal work be sure to include at least one set of lower back for every set of ABS number seven herniated disks you've doubtless heard of either protruding bulging or herniated discs in your spine what you should know is they're all bad really bad when they're squeezed or too much pressure is applied out comes the jelly and if the jelly pushes against the nerve it can radiate pain cause loss of strength and potentially result in permanent damage use weights that challenge you but don't go so heavy as to literally crush your spine or pop a disc being a knucklehead is just not worth it trust me number eight the flexor injuries many people are under the impression that running is the answer to help fitness and weight loss what they don't realize is that running excessively can overuse the hip flexors the muscles near the front top of the hip you must strive for a balanced routine and make running part of an intelligent routine not the routine number nine bone spurs all of your joints can create friction as muscles tendons ligaments and bones rub against each other in tight spaces and bony structures called Spurs can form doubt pinch the surrounding area and can cause inflammation pain and weakness the most susceptible areas are the feet and shoulders and high raft low weight training can be a causal factor so stick with heavier weights and medium to low reps and if there is any sign of pain make sure to rest ice the area immediately and when needed OC and Northup eatest number 10 bruised egos people go to the gym to put on a show instead of getting into shape and when people are showing off their form off and suffers an injury resolves I know if people were alone and working out at home without anyone watching we would not see so much of this sometimes crazy behavior and while it's mostly men who like to hurl around the heavy weights I've also seen women push themselves too far in competition with each other and hurt themselves people need to understand that exercise is not a contest but the lifestyle there will always be someone bigger stronger faster more flexible and better than you in a particular area
