Your time is precious, and it's hard enough to fit in a workout during your busy day. So when you do work out, you want to make your routine as efficient and injury-free as possible. You know that cardio and strength training are integral to success, but do you know which moves you should ditch? Start with a big pain in the neck -- the pulldown machine can be an effective tool in sculpting back muscles, but it should always be pulled down in front of you, never behind. If you pull it down behind your neck, then you risk damaging the delicate rotator cuff, which causes upper back, shoulder and neck pain. Do you know squat about working out the legs? You should. Squats are by far the best way to sculpt thigh muscles and burn fat - steer clear of lifting a great deal of weight on the leg extension machine.
