that you should think twice before trying
Lat pull-downs behind the head
The only people who can attempt to pull the bar behind their heads when handling lat pull-down exercise are those with highly flexible shoulder joints. They should also take the high precision level to avoid hitting the head backs with the exercise bar. Most of those who spend their days dong office work are very likely to have rounded shoulders and should not do such exercises.It’s safer to do the related exercises by pulling the bar in front of you which is less risky.
Leg presses and squats inducing deep knee bends
The major risk involved whenever doing deep knee bents emanate from the fact that it’s difficult to maintain proper alignment of the spine. This could eventually cause damage of spinal discs or lower back muscle strain
Seated leg extensions
Straining your knees excessively when doing quadriceps exercises could land you into big problems. Avoid such exercises especially if you feel excessive strain or knee problems. You can try just simple squats without added weight or specific sport-related plyometric exercises which are more secure.
Outer and inner maintenance exercise for thighs
The thigh muscles are small and straining them could aggravate problems with your lower back and hips. You can try standing adductions, lying adductions and Pilate exercises which are less risky
These exercises could easily cause shoulder impinging by compressing the shoulder area nerves. You can try bending forward to 90 degrees over the rows and increasing the width between the shoulders. Front lateral shoulder raises are also helpful.
