View Full Version : Contraindications List

I know I have seen a list of contraindicated moves and explanations of why not to do them somewhere on this forum. Our gym is planning on getting all the IC instructors together for a little meeting. Some of our instructors are getting a little too "creative" in their teaching style. We are having problems with too fast cadence in warm up, isolations, tri-style, and "Look, Ma, no hands." Thanks Pat

Here's MDA's list of contraindicated moves, but it is not the end all, be all. Some idiot instructors can invest things that couldn't be anticipated.

That was worse than awful...

...it was pathetic and pointless.

Doing no work on their legs (no resistance), no upper body work (not as much as they would've got had they got off the bikes to do it), and no cardio either (I doubt they got much above 65% MHR).

Utter waste of time and money for the participants - they'll never get fit, strong, lean, etc., all the reasons why people shell out $150 a month to join a gym.... :rolleyes:

Yep, that's what I noticed too. I totally agree. Horrible! And did you see what they did with the weights? - they placed them on the handlebars during "the ride"! :confused: :eek:

Go to my blog (http://funhogspins.blogspot.com). I posted as many as possible as I could there, with an explanation. I'm sure I'll come up with more - and in fact, if you have any ideas, post it on my blog and I'll address it.

Now I need to learn how to embed Youtube vidoes on the blog...I want to put this one that Horizon posted on there!

Too little time at the gym? :confused: Too difficult to choose between Spinning and Bodypump? :confused: Why not combine them! :eek:
