There are countless exercises that even fitness buffs perform incorrectly. Some mistakes are simply too subtle to even notice that they're wrong, while others are exercises that have been taught incorrectly from the start. Zoning in on even the smallest mistakes can mean improving your progress and, even more importantly, avoiding a serious injury.

This tiny mistake can lead to back and neck injuries, and chances are, you didn't even notice that you do it.!-- Start of Brightcove Player -- !-- By use of this code snippet, I agree to the Brightcove Publisher T and C found at https://accounts.brightcove.com/en/terms-and-conditions/. --!-- This script tag will cause the Brightcove Players defined above it to be created as soon as the line is read by the browser.
