I have trained personal training clients and teams now for some time now and I generally see the same things over and over pop up – people are doing great exercises but doing them extremely poorly. Below I will outline the common ones and how you go about fixing them.
Here is a few that people always seem to get wrong and importantly how to fix them…
1. The Dumbbell Row-
The dumbbell row is famously known as a simple exercise that’s really hard to do..
The lunge is a great exercise that is actually quite dangerous for the wrong person. It’s hugely dynamic and should sonly be tackled by people who have a good bit of training under their belt and haven’t got any pre existent knee injuries.
Pay attention ladies as sometime you struggle more with this great exercise than the boys.
Returning from a shoulder injury, need to challenge the shoulder muscles and joints to make sure it can withstand the rigours of sport. FTI Physiotherapist Thomas Divilly talks us through the progressions of the Push Up Plus exercise, an essential exercise for optimal shoulder function.
In this episode Joey Boland Physiotherapist at Functional Training Ireland talks to Dublin Footballers Ciaran Kilkenny and Kevin O’Brien about their recent ACL injuries.
An ACL injury (Anterior Cruciate Ligament) can be quite serious and need in many cases surgery to properly fix and treat, the rehab can be long and frustrating so it’s important to get the right Chartered Physio to help you.
Note: We don’t treat the Kevin or Ciaran they are getting extremely well looked after in the Dublin GAA set up. We are just having a chat with them.
