The Top 6 Ways To Get Hurt in the Gym

Love the gym, but afraid to get hurt? Here's the top 6 ways you could do more harm than good.

While checking out the forementioned hot girl in the yoga pants or the top play on SportsCenter might be part of the gym experience, these are certainly things that should not be done while you are under the bar. Keep in mind that most sets only last anywhere from 10 to 50 seconds. You’ll have plenty of time to talk to your buddies about your fantasy football picks once the set is over. For now, focus on making every rep a good rep.
