There is a huge misconception in the fitness and rehab worlds about 'bad' exercises. Far too often, we label exercises as a good exercise or bad exercise for all athletes, however, these types of blanket statements without any context or exceptions can cause more harm than good. Many preach that squats are a must in every athlete’s fitness program and exercises such as behind the neck press’ should never be performed…when in fact, many of these movements can be great for athletic performance. These beliefs are from years of dogma surrounding certain movements. But in reality, any exercise can be a bad exercise if an athlete lacks the required mobility & motor control. Let's put this bad exercise myth to bed and explain why it always depends!
