  • physical therapist

  • on the internet. ♪

  • (hands clapping)

  • - Howdy folks! I'm Bob Schrupp, physical therapist.

  • - Brad Heineck, physical therapist.

  • - 'Cause we are the most famous physical therapist

  • on the internet.

  • - In our opinion, of course, Bob.

  • - It looks like you're a big scepter.

  • - Give me that.

  • - Okay. Today, Brad, we're gonna talk about 15 common

  • exercises you should never do.

  • Never, ever.

  • - Mhmm.

  • - Alright. And we're gonna make sure that you never do 'em,

  • because we're gonna explain to you why you shouldn't do it.

  • - Sure, helps a lot.

  • - Let's take care of this first though, Brad,

  • and make sure you like us,

  • because Brad and I, as children, were not liked.

  • - Oh, Bob.

  • - It's sad.

  • And we're trying to turn things around.

  • So let's talk about the first exercise, Brad.

  • - Alright.

  • - It's a real common exercise.

  • I think the government used to have you do it, didn't it?

  • - Yeah, I mean it's basic. Just windmill.

  • - You really wanna question it then.

  • - Yeah, then you always wanna question it.

  • - So the windmills.

  • - What you're doing here,

  • what's really hard on the back

  • and the discs of the back, is flexion and twisting

  • at the same time.

  • - Sure.

  • - So what are you doing with windmills?

  • You're flexing - Flexing.

  • - And twisting, - Right

  • - at the same time.

  • If you want to hurt your back, this is what you should do.

  • (laughing)

  • Do windmills without a doubt, really bad for you.

  • - Particularly as you get a little older,

  • you're even more prone to it.

  • - Right. So I could feel that right there, Brad.

  • By the way,

  • I'm gonna be doing all 15 of these exercises today.

  • I'm gonna be in bad shape by the end of the day.

  • - Yes, Bob, you are.

  • That's why I'm gonna watch.

  • Alright, well he's smart, isn't he?

  • - I'm gonna crack the whip.

  • - Next one, most people know this.

  • I think, but maybe they don't,

  • is you should be doing full sit ups,

  • full sit ups like this, - Sure.

  • - 'Cause you, it puts, again, a tremendous amount

  • of stress on the discs of the back.

  • - Right. Particularly, right in the low back.

  • And particularly the ones where you reach for your toes.

  • - Right. Right.

  • When you go on like this type of thing

  • or they're going.

  • - Yeah.

  • - You know, and they've done studies on this.

  • They've actually stuck a needle in the disc

  • of the back and they've measured the amount of pressure

  • and this puts a tremendous amount of pressure on it.

  • - Sure.

  • - So, and probably, I dunno if it'd be worse

  • but certainly not better is,

  • if you did supported sit-ups.

  • - Yeah.

  • So there's those devices, those benches

  • you could slide your heels, I mean your feet underneath.

  • - Right.

  • - Or you have somebody else hold and you're doing these.

  • - Right. - And then you see some people take a weight.

  • - Right. -And even make it worse.

  • - Yeah. Grab that kettle ball.

  • - No, I'm not gonna do that!

  • I'll blow a disc right on.

  • - Or you're doing on an incline .

  • - On an incline, right.

  • - Right. Which you'd, yeah.

  • It certain, it certainly works the stomach muscles well,

  • but it hurts so bad. - It's also working the leg muscles,

  • by the way, when someone supports it.

  • You're actually working your hip flexors.

  • - Yeah, hip flexor and that rectus femoris you got.

  • - So staying right into this theme also v-sits like this.

  • - Oh.

  • - Really hard on the back.

  • And if you wanna make them even worse,

  • do v-sits with a twist. - Right, right.

  • - It's the same principle again, you're bending the back

  • and you're twisting it at the same time.

  • - Right, with a lot of pressure in the middle there.

  • - Yeah. Just really bad for the back.

  • I mean, again, I'm glad I'm done with those.

  • I'm actually gonna do some extensions, Brad,

  • right now just to.

  • - Yeah.

  • - This is the counter.

  • - Don't worry, if you wanna get your core

  • and your stomach strengthen there are much better options.

  • - There's a million ways to deal with that.

  • - Right. And we have videos on those,

  • but we're, we gotta stick to the,

  • to what we're, the goal here.

  • - Right. Next one is ,Brad, is tri tricep dips off a bench.

  • - Sure.

  • - So you're going off the end of a bench like this.

  • I'll do it off that side too.

  • - Yep.

  • - And you're doing dips like this.

  • Really a tremendous amount of stress on the shoulder.

  • It's at kind of end range.

  • There's better ways to strengthen the triceps.

  • We had a whole video on that.

  • - Right. - Remember that Brad? So.

  • - Yeah, so when the shoulder's coming to

  • end range extension here,

  • which anytime you put a joint at end range,

  • it's more susceptible to injury, no matter what.

  • - Yeah. And you can get some impingement

  • with that even just the way you're putting your shoulder

  • into place like that.

  • - Next one.

  • I'm jumping off into a different area here.

  • This is a simple way.

  • Anybody who runs a lot, I wanna make sure you're running.

  • You don't run on the same side of

  • the street all the time.

  • - Right.

  • - So there's always a little bit

  • of a camber to the road, a little bit of a tilt.

  • - So the water runs off the road

  • and doesn't stay in the middle. It, that's functional thing.

  • - So if I run down the right side of the road and come

  • down on the other side, I'm always on the same tilt.

  • - Right.

  • - And you're putting the same stresses

  • on your ankle, and your knees, and your feet.

  • And if you're, if you're susceptible

  • to like plantar fasciitis, you're I mean,

  • I'm sensitive enough that I can actually tell when

  • I'm on one side of the road too much.

  • - Sure, right.

  • - So I know legally or safety wise,

  • it's best to always go against traffic,

  • but I actually go out against traffic

  • and then in with traffic is what I do.

  • - Right. Yeah, use good judgment, you know,

  • use a different route or something, but.

  • - I try to pick roads that have really wide should,

  • you know, wide shoulders and so

  • that we don't have to worry about it.

  • - I had a patient when she had tendonitis

  • on her perineals.

  • - Yeah.

  • - And she was at a walking program,

  • walking the same side of the road

  • and I said, well, switch sides.

  • And with a couple days immediate, you know, it started

  • - It went away.

  • - Right. - And that's
