Is Your Workout HARMFUL?
There are many reasons why a workout can be harmful. First, lets start with poor execution. If you are using machines or weight improperly on your own at the gym you can really hurt yourself.

Over the next three weeks I will delve deeper into the harms within each instance above and alternatives which will be safer for your body.
