A Good Exercise

At least once a day I get a call or an email asking if a particular exercise is good or bad. In general an exercise is not good or bad, it is the context in which they are applied. I do think there are exercises that are harmful and dangerous, but with those exceptions it all comes down to context. - Where in the workout, where in the plan, what is the chronological and training age of the athlete. These are just a few factors that determine context.

Mr. Gambetta,
I would like to know what some of those exercises are that you would consider to be dangerous. Please share if you don't mind.

Thanks,

I would consider the crossover skip or side step dangerous to someone looking to build pure isolated muscle mass( i.e. bodybuilder). Dangerous to their ego. Or they might blow out their hamy.

Not that there is anything wrong w/ bodybuilding.
