    I agree 100% with the behind the head stuff. Avoid that if you value your shoulders.

    Poorly worded title and execution...but brought up many valid points on improper techniques leading to injury.

    :werd: I do not do them because of past shoulder problems, but I cannot speak for anyone else.

    So basically he is saying avoid lifts that can be done incorrectly? I guess I should stick to machines.;)

    "why you should avoid the deadlift" says nothing about why you should avoid it.

    i do avoid leg extensions, they fuck my knees up.

    shouldn't your legs be closer together and the top of your chest "puffed out" a bit more for a proper military press?
