In case you're wondering, over 50,000 Americans visit the emergency room each year with injuries from workout equipment. The worst offender? The treadmill.
When working out, save yourself a trip to the ER and a lot of embarrassment by:
- Using a spotter for heavy weights
- Getting enough rest so you're mind and body are alert and responsive
- Not focusing too much on iPods, iPads, cell phones or reading material when using equipment
