Alright guys, I wanted to start up a new thread and discuss some favorite lifts. NOT including:
The purpose of this discussion is to share some of our workouts (perhaps unorthodox ones) and give each other some feedback. I, just like everyone else, am always ready to learn a few new tricks.
That being said, what are some of your favorite or unique workouts and why do you like performing them.
I will start this off with two:
1) Weighted pushup / Unweighted pushup superset. Basically you start off with 45+ lbs on your back and do pushups, remove the weight and do more. I like it because your natural body weight feels a lot lighter than it normally would after doing the weighted pushups, allowing you to crank out quite a few reps--plus your muscles get extra fatigued because you did the weighted ones as well.
2) Vertical pushups. I have not done these in a LONG time. Threw them in today and let me tell you, my shoulders, traps, and core could feel em! These should definitely find a home in your workouts at least once every other week.
