Description

Evidence-based Alternatives to Popular Exercises

By: D. Michael Jett, Jr., M.S., C.S.C.S., EP-C, PN; Jessica Gibb, M.S., CEP, EP-C, FMSC; and David E. Verrill, M.S., RCEP, CES, PD, FAACVPR     

The process of appropriate program design can be complicated, but this practice can be simplified somewhat by considering the removal of specific exercises that may be inappropriate for many populations. Evidence is presented in this article to support the replacement of several exercises due to increased injury risk. Evidence-based alternatives to each movement are recommended and described. These alternative exercises promote a similar, or in some cases more beneficial training effect, and have a low injury risk. Practitioners are well-served to choose exercises with a low risk-to-reward ratio, regardless of the health/injury status of the client or patient. Thus, there is nothing to lose by adding the alternative exercises suggested in this article to an exercise selection library, and utilizing them with both healthy and deconditioned populations.
