As trends emerge in the world of health and fitness, more people get involved in new methods of exercise. As we know, exercise participants can range from the highly trained athlete to the couch potato with a new year's resolution. No matter the participant's experience level, injury can occur during any part of an exercise routine, and can often occur while incorrectly performing strength or resistance training. Strength training is an important part of an exercise regimen; it promotes fat burning, improves core stability, and reduces bone loss and risk for osteoporosis. However, proper precautions must be taken and modifications must be made to reduce the chance of injury.
