There are many exercises people like to avoid or give an excuse for why they cantโ€™/donโ€™t do them ๐Ÿ˜ but hereโ€™s 5 ๐Ÿ‘‡๐Ÿผ

DEADLIFT - Itโ€™s the foundation of many important exercises and shouldnโ€™t be skipped if youโ€™re looking to build basic strength. But unfortunately it takes time to perform deadlifts properly which results in people complaining about it ๐Ÿ˜• (If it hurts your back youโ€™re probably doing it wrong) Please speak to any member of staff and we can help you with your deadlift ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

HIP THRUST - This is cast aside as a GIRLY exercise well guess what dudes!! If you perform this exercise correctly with moderate weight itโ€™s not easy & hits your posterior change extremely well ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

STANDING OHP - Most people prefer this exercise sat down... why because itโ€™s easier ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ there are many benefits for doing the standing overhead press ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ If your bench press has come to standstill supplement this exercise into your routine ๐Ÿ˜Ž

PULL UP - If you didnโ€™t know Pull ups are a great upper back & bicep exercise performed properly ๐Ÿ˜ƒ but there arenโ€™t exactly something beginners can normally jump into, using bands,negative reps or even starting with body weight rows are a great way to progress towards your first pull ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ

Dips - Just like Pull ups another great bodyweight exercise which is often neglected ๐Ÿ˜ฉ you can add unlimited weight & itโ€™s a great exercise to add into your chest/push routine if you havenโ€™t before ๐Ÿ˜ƒ๐Ÿ˜ƒ

BONUS EXERCISE - PUTTING YOUR WEIGHTS AWAY ๐Ÿ˜ฉ๐Ÿ˜ฉ Performing this exercise correctly earns your respect & means the staff wonโ€™t hate you ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ˜‚

Thanks again to clubland ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ

Yours truly Willy B xx


First of all donโ€™t be offended if you do these exercises not saying you should never do them!! However there are much better ways of targeting your desired muscle ๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿฅฐ

SHRUGS - Shrugs are a very popular exercises for building traps but are they the best??? Questionable for sure. If youโ€™re spending more than 10 minutes doing shrugs Iโ€™d probably say youโ€™re wasting time๐Ÿ˜ฌ

SIT-UPS- When you first start getting into fitness sit-ups have always been a benchmark exercise, but unless your in the army there loads better alternatives which are safer & more effective๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿผ

DONKEY KICKS - If youโ€™re looking to have an easy workout & not fully loading your muscle then crack on. But if your looking for another option maybe use a cable or ditch it completely for a Hip thrust or lunge variation ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘

TRICEP KICKBACK- Tricep kickbacks done correctly arenโ€™t too bad but considering the range of equipment & angles you can train your triceps at Iโ€™d say itโ€™s pretty low down on the list ๐Ÿ‘Ž๐Ÿผ

SIDE BENDS - Not going to hold back on this one I genuinely think if I tied my shoelace up Iโ€™d have a better workout!! Ditch it ๐Ÿ–•๐Ÿผ

Iโ€™d like to thank our model @chris86tiger ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ

I will be posting another video tomorrow about the most underrated exercises ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ๐Ÿ’ช๐Ÿผ

Lots of love Willy B xx
