What is your Favourite Exercise and Why?

Everyone has got one - what's yours?

1043947_10151666624086661_2091856864_nEveryone has a favourite exercise. Maybe it's the one where you feel strongest, can complete with perfect form, the exercise that you get the most out of, the one you do first, or for whatever reason the exercise you like the most. So, what is it?

Mine? The pullup. Why you ask? Pullups are one of the most beneficial overall muscle and strength developers. They are great exercise for the back (lats and traps), biceps, triceps, shoulders, and abdominals. But most importantly, when I first started going to the gym I could only do one, maybe two. And to be honest, my form wasn't the greatest. I was swinging myself up, was my chin over the bar? Probably not Definitely not. But I wanted to do more.

I asked tons of people how to get better at pull-ups - I heard everything from doing lots lat pull-downs to assisted pull-ups. But the best advice I ever got was "If you want to do more pull-ups, just do more pull-ups"
The best advice I ever got was "If you want to do more pull-ups, just do more pull-ups"

Practice makes perfect. Every time I stepped foot into the gym, I did pull-ups first. These days? I'm proud to say that I start my pull workouts with 4 sets of pull-ups, 8-10 reps.

So what's your favourite exercise? And most importantly why? Share your story by leaving your comments below!

I couldn't agree more. My firt workouts were made of pull ups, and they make me fell so hurt that time. Startet doing 6 sets of 2 reps, because I cannot do more at that time. Best thing I've made.
