Lets Hear It for AOL

Liz Neporent and Ralf Hennig got it right today on AOL. I’m always a big critic of mainstream media when they put up “fitness tips”. Usually it’s stuff like “go for a walk”, take a yoga class etc. I was pleasantly surprised when I clicked on the 10 exercises to not do and saw leg extensions, behind the neck pulldowns and the Ab/ Add Machine. The writers got most of it right. I’m still leery of the squat caution ( don’t go to low) but, I don’t want to nit pick. This is a great piece if you can print it out for your personal training clients who may be a tough sell. Check it out.

  1. Mike I learned to approch these people with caution. There is so much gym science or (gossip girl) talk in general fitness centers it’s a fire sale. Get to know the person ask why they are doing what they are doing and then suggest a more effective and efficient way of doing those things. People can get very dismissive or defensive in these settings when told what they are doing is wrong, when exercise is a general right.
