The Safety Card

People throw the safety card as if we are all supposed to stop in our tracks at the mere mention of Safety. Safety is a relative term. It is not a black and white issue. Safety exists on a continuum of most risky to least risky. However, no physical endeavor can guaranty complete safety. Likewise, we cannot divorce the risk of certain activities from the fallibility of human behavior.

People say this exercise is unsafe, that workout program is unsafe, you can’t and you shouldn’t do them. As if some kind of movement is inherently dangerous.

People need to move better. People need to be responsible for their own actions. Stop pushing the blame off yourself. Nobody is making you do anything.
