Most leading exercise authorities suggest contraindicated exercises are those that carry higher risks to joint structure, soft tissue, or other risks. Because the risks typically outweigh the benefits, these exercises are inappropriate for most individuals. According to the Cooper Institute there is no such thing as a “one size fits all” approach as individuals have variability in their fitness level, health history, joint mechanics, flexibility, and goals. There are a number of exercises that are not appropriate, but with just a slight modification injury risk can be significantly reduced.
Issues most common in causing an exercise to be considered contraindicated (risky) include:
•Improper body alignment
•Locking of joints
•Rapid, jerky, & uncontrolled movements
•Excessive compression of structures
•ADDITIONALLY TAKING YOUR SPINE OUT OF PROPER AND MOMENTUM DRIVEN MOTIONS/MOVES CAN BE PROBLEMATIC
