5 gym exercises you should never do

Most endurance coaches (except Brett Sutton) would agree that some weight lifting might be valuable. However there are some potentially detrimental exercises you should avoid.

Via Scott 'Terminator' Molina: 5 Exercises You Should Stop Doing...Forever!
  1. Shoulder press behind the neck.
  2. Upright rows.
  3. Shrugs with shoulder roll.
  4. Twisting sit-ups.
  5. Deadlifts (or squats etc) with a rounded back.
At some point I've tried all of these, and I just did kettlebell upright rows last week, ouch!
