Sometimes I like to throw in some unorthodox accessory lifts after I hit my core lifts for the work out.
Here are a couple I've tried recently that I think are pretty fun and a great way to add some spice to your work out...
Waiter's Walk: Snatch or clean and press a dumbbell to overhead lock out. Walk a specified distance, lower dumbbell and repeat with other arm.
This is a great exercise to improve balance, shoulder girdle stability , tricep lock out strength, mid section strength/stability and overall coordination.
Ice Cream Maker: Pull up so your neck is above the bar. Tighten up your whole body, especially your midsection. Lower your body, while contracting your core so your body + arms make an L shape. I believe the correct term would be to do a Lever.
Repeat motion for 3-8 reps.
Muscle Up: Pull up with as much acceleration as possible, slightly flexing your hips/knees, to help drive your whole body above the bar. You may have to dip up to get lock out
One armed DB Clean + Jerk Get a heavyish dumbbell and clean it to you shoulder, using a slight hop, jerk it to the over head lock out position.
What novel or unorthodox lifts do you guys do to spice up your work outs?
