French press has issued instructions to trainers to avoid the dumbbell push pressing during their training session, after a new report claimed to have found the move to be unsafe.
In the new report, published by French press agency, Département de France, researchers say the push press has been linked to serious injuries, including the death of a trainer.
A report from Dépérium-Nucleaire, a French research group, said that a study of more than 1,000 dumbbell pressers found the push presses are more prone to injury than the traditional bench press, which has been widely used for many years.
Départment de France said the research showed that the dumbbelly press was the only exercise where the injury rate was higher than the bench press.
“Dumbbell pressing is a common exercise for people of all ages,” the French press said in a statement.
“It has been used by athletes for centuries, and we can confirm that the safety profile of dumbbell presses is very high.”
Dépère-Nuffels, which also includes France’s National Council for Sport and Exercise, said in its statement that the report is part of a growing trend of studies linking the push to injuries.
“For a long time, we’ve known that the bench is the most popular exercise for training for power, but now we see that the power bar and dumbbells are also more common for strength training,” it said.
“The push press is one of the most common exercises for weightlifting, which is also a good reason why it’s very important to train safely.”
In a statement, the American Council of Exercise, a trade group representing weightlifters, said dumbbell pressing was a common training tool for many athletes, and the researchers had been unable to determine the risk of injury with this type of exercise.
“Injuries related to the use of dumbbbells and dumbtubes have been reported in a variety of sports, including weightlifting,” the statement said.
“This is an emerging risk for the push-press exercise.
Our members have been encouraged to use a safer method of training and use a proper weightlifting equipment.”
A spokesperson for the American Association of Strength and Conditioning (AASC) told Vice News that dumbbell exercises were not as dangerous as some people may think.
“We don’t see the evidence that a dumbbell exercise is a more dangerous exercise than other forms of exercise,” said the spokesperson.
“If you want to get serious, dumbbell lifts are the safest.”
The press is a popular training tool, and many people train with dumbbell weights, but it is also possible to injure yourself while doing so.
A study published in the British Journal of Sports Medicine found that people using dumbbell-weighted exercises in the gym were more likely to experience injuries, particularly lower back pain, and a lower quality of life.
A separate study published by the International Journal of Sport Physical Education and Performance found that some people use dumbbell and dumb bar exercises to train, but only a small number of them are actually performing those exercises correctly.
A new report by the National Council of Sport and Fitness (Conseil de la Sociedade Sportif de Sport), which has more than 4,000 members, found that in the past year, nearly half of the dumb pressers who participated in the research said they did not have a proper technique for the exercise.
The new research, the report said, suggested that the use to use dumbbar exercises could be dangerous.
“It’s important to emphasize that the only way to avoid injury is to use the correct technique,” the report reads.
“Therefore, a common mistake is to push with dumbbars.
Do not attempt to use push with a dumb bar, or to push to the side with a push bar, for example.”
A Dépasse de l’Université de Grenoble, a university in northern France, said the training guidelines for dumbbell trainers should be changed.
“A dumbbell is a tool and it has to be used according to the requirements of the sport,” the school’s director of sports education, Laurent Ménard, told VICE News.
“When we are training dumbbell training, we should use it as a tool.
The equipment should not be used to train dumbbell.
It’s a tool, but you need to train it properly.”
Ménard said the new guidelines for the dumb push could be a start.
“To be honest, we don’t want to go too far.
But the first step is to stop using dumbbar.
This is a dangerous exercise, and dumbbar training is a very dangerous activity,” he said.
