    NEW ARTICLE - The Best Exercises are the ones You’re not Doing

    As they say in the trenches, “The best program is the one you are not using at the moment.” This saying may easily be changed to: “The best EXERCISE is the one you are not using at the moment.”

    We give you five powerful exercises that we're willing to bet you're not performing at the moment and also give you the best bang for your buck.

    Not only will they give you a new challenge, they will also breathe new life into your current workout!

    Great article Karsten, and cool idea for the loaded glute bridge. I don't get to say this often, "I never thought of that."

    Yup great article.

    However, I must give you a word of warning: Variation in exercises must be applied with a purpose. Just “mixing it up” will very likely be a waste of time. We must give the body time (reps, sets, and workouts) to adapt to a stimulus and only THEN do we change the stimulus. A key characteristic of a successful macro cycle is a carefully planned sequence of exercises specific to your level of training and your goals.
    Glad you said that as this
    The best program is the one you are not using at the moment
    has to be one of the most misunderstood and misapplied sayings on forums.

    And you got one up on the Glute Guy - hell of an article!!

    Neat, but can you honestly see yourself doing pelvic thrusts in a gym full of people?? What if a girl walks by and you make eye contact?? That's like one count of sexual harassment per each rep you do while you hold eye contact.
