    Thumbs down What workouts do you REFUSE to do?

    Were talking about exercises that DO have a place in teh workout world, but you dont do them cuz theyre ineffective for you, uncomfortable, have better ideas, etc...

    Mine would be..
    Straight arm pulldowns
    Pullovers
    Reverse grip bench
    Bent press
    Seated overhead one dumbell extension (forget the name, but with both hands holding hte dumbell over head and you press it directly over your head....meaning when it comes down you have to move your neck forward out of the way)
    6' 203lbs (12-10-12)
    Bench 365 (12/3)
    Weighted Pullups 80lbs 3x3 (3/19)
    Squat 370
    Deadlift after herniation 385lbs 3x3 (3/17)

    Any forearm work. I dont use straps so my forearms get plenty of work without any extra.

    Hmm... thats a tough question. There are a lot of exercises I don't do, or avoid doing, but which of them will I refuse to do?


    Leg kickbacks (the really gay looking exercise)
    Decline Bench
    No Milk, no.
    Milk is for babies. When you grow up, you have to drink beer.

    I dont refuse to do any exercise but I dont like doin side raises because I dont feel anything when I am using a light weight but when I use a heavy weight my form goes to shit.

    Decline bench and upright rows I expected to see listed.

    I do like decline bench but I have noticed it started to hurt my shoulders a little. Went away.

    Upright rows are a no no too for me.

    Once when I was doing lunges, after my sixth set, my hamstrings seemed to seize up and I actually couldnt walk for about 30 seconds. It was so fucking bad.
