In spite of being immersed in the middle of 2019, we can still find inside a gym a great number of people doing exercises that are either potentially harmful or are done with the wrong approach.
To shed a little more light on this subject, let us detail some of these points and the reasons why these exercises should not be performed.
EXERCISES AFTER NAPE
Exercises after the nape of the neck (such as presses or dominated exercises) are potentially very harmful, as they place our glenohumeral joint in a very compromised and highly unstable position.
When we perform an exercise after the nape of the neck, we provoke an abduction together with an external rotation of our shoulder, mainly involving the supraspinatus tendon.
