Exercises you SHOULD be doing

If there is a particular exercise you are avoiding, it is probably exactly what your body needs.

For some reason, it is human nature to avoid what is challenging and uncomfortable.

I say, "In your face, instinct!"

Embrace what you don't want to do and watch your body transform!!

Here are some case in point, commonly avoided exercises:

1. Pull Ups

2. Jump Lunges

3. Hanging Straight Leg Raises

4. Dips

5. Sprints

6. Ardha Chandrasana (half moon posture)

7. Wide Angle Forward Fold (Upavishta Konasana)

In fact ... why not create a workout centered around these "bane of your exercise existence" movements?

Try circuiting the above moves. Determine your number of reps and length of sprint. Do each exercise one after the other without rest. Start with one set once a week. The following week, do two sets. Add an additional set the third week and continue performing this workout once per week.
