Worst Exercises to Perform in the Gym

Worst Exercises to Perform in the Gym

In today’s podcast, I talk about the worst exercises to perform in the gym. It’s more a look at exercises or workouts that you shouldn’t perform in a busy gym. Either because the exercises themselves are bad, or because doing so can be disruptive to your fellow members.

Worst Exercises to Perform in the Gym

The worst exercises to perform in the gym in my opinion are:

  1. Adductor/Abductor machine – pointless, works the muscles in isolation when they work best when performed in compound movements
  2. Wrist Curls – pointless, complete waste of time for 90% of gym-goers.
  3. Kettlebell Deadlifts into Upright Rows – Just a horrible combination of exercises that could cause injury and has no real benefits
  4. Walking Lunges – Great exercise, one of my favourites, but not suitable for busy gyms
  5. Ladders – A form of training where you start off with a very heavy weight and keep performing reps until exhaustion, then you use a lower weight, and keep lowering the weight until you reach the lowest weight. Fun to do, but uses up way too many weights and takes up too much space.
  6. Circuits – Can be okay, but too often they take up too much space, use too much equipment, and are often badly programmed. Usually too difficult to do properly.

Midnight Maverick by Siren Brewery

The beer I drank during the podcast is called Midnight Maverick by Siren brewery, and it was a nitro oatmeal stout. Now, I do love a good stout and have had several really good ones over the years. But this was just a little too sweet for me. I loved the texture, incredibly smooth thanks to the nitro. But not my cup of tea. If you like sweet stouts then you will really enjoy this one though.

I may not be ranking this in my top ten beers of season 2, but I know enough about beer to say that it is still really good. Definitely worth trying so that you can make your own mind up about it.
