The foundation of your workout routine should be governed by exercising your body rather tthan exercising your ego.
Your primary goal—if you expect lifelong fitness and mobility—is safety. That means no Jackass stunts. No crazy crossfit moves you are physically unprepared and incapable of executing. No preposterously heavy weights. No macho assholes egging you on to exceed your physical limits.
A recent video on Instagram of David Beckham’s 17 year old son performing squats is a great example. Two older male voices are heard off camera, barking instructions as Beckham peforms apparently very heavy squats with no safety and no spotter. If either of these voices is a paid trainer, Brooklyn needs to fire them, STAT. Why Brooklyn Beckham is working out in a gym that doesn’t have a squat cage or rack with safety stops is the first important question. I assume in watching this video he’s relying on “older” and “more experienced” males to guide/instruct/train him. In the end he loses his balance, and with no safety apparatus to catch the barbell, he could well have injured himself badly. I was also suspicious that a young man with undeveloped quads could—or should—be squatting with what appears to be over 300 lbs.
Ego is the primary enemy of fitness progress and gym safety.
