  2. Squats
    Cleans (proper form)
    Deadlifts
    Seated bis (the standers always use momentum)

  3. gotta agree with jumping rope.

    others include:
    swimming
    front squats
    hack squats
    ab wheel

  4. Ouch! Front squats! Those always worried me, so I never did too much weight there.

    Tate Presses are very good.

    Exercise Guide - Tate Press

  9. Weighted Dips
    Good Mornings
    Hack Squat
    Lunges
    Decline Bench...

  10. Walking Lunges
    Good mornings
    GHRs
    front squats
    clean and press
  11. Cool


    1. Straight Leg Dead Lifts
    2. Zercher Squats
    3. Front Squats
    4. Dead Lifts
    5. Heavy Calf Raises (you know who you are... the guy's doing sets of 25 calf raises with 90lbs and whining about not gaining any size)

  12. 1) Full Rep Clean and Press
    2) Full Rep Dead Lifts
    3) Incline Bench Press
    4) Walking Lunges
    5) Jumping Rope

  13. Definitely deadlifts
    Any kind of rear delt exercises, those are so good for preventing rotator cuff injuries.

  14. The gym was closed yesterday, so my training partner and I weren't able to do our regular cardio day.

    I get a call from him, asking what he should do to as replacement. I bet him he couldn't do jumping jacks for a straight 30 minutes (keep in mind this is a guy who runs 6-7 miles HIIT on a treadmill). I should've bet money.

  15. 1)Squats
    2)Rear delt excersises (I agree with CRUNCH, having had injuries)
    3)Deadlifts
    4)Dumbbell Rows
    5)Cardio in general (What's the sense in having muscle if it's covered in fat?)

    GHRs are probably the best hamstring exercise, they are pretty hard though most people cant do very many.

    No, I mean literally dead lifting the bar everytime. A full rep dead lift is going down, lifting the bar, lowering it to the floor and then returning to a standing/starting position, then repeating. Most people I see go down once to lift and then never let go of the bar. That gives you some bounce at the bottom of each subsequent eccentric and you're not really deadlifting the bar even if it touches the floor. Doing full rep dead lifts is very, very taxing. Noticably more so than only dead lifting once at the beginning.

    Wow, I never knew that. Bringing it down until the plates barely touch the floor seems to be a common practice. Interesting.

    Yup, and it isn't the 'right' way strictly speaking. Full rep deads kick your ass. Same for the clean and press. Some people clean the bar once and then do presses for however many reps, then return the bar to the floor. Clean, press, return, stand, clean, press, return, stand, etc., is the correct way to do it. It's another one that kicks your ass when you do it right, full rep.

  20. Copenhagen dips
    Budweiser curls
