NO! NO! NO! The Three Worst According to Physical Therapist John Wilbert

· UPRIGHT ROWS
· BEHIND THE NECK LAT PULLDOWNS
· LEG EXTENSION MACHINE


"The leg extension machine has been proven to only strengthen the quads to do the leg extension machine, not to support the body during functional activities (eg: stairs). Muscles in the leg are meant to work against gravity and in combination. Any other environment puts the knee joint at risk and wastes your workout time."

John is a Physical Therapist at Recovery Physical Therapy 30 Wall Street, 4th floor.
