Best Exercise: What's yours?
Posted 29 January 2011 - 02:21 AM
It is a amazing exercise. It works out a lot of muscles (mainly the Abs obviously) and you can do a LOT of reps on it for endurance and strength. I guarantee you, go to any gym, get those big buff guys, I doubt they can do 10 sets of 10. Why? It works the body, and uses so many muscles, especially the stabilizers. I guarantee you, incorporate this into your workouts, and you will gain on everything, especially core strength and flexibility, if done correctly.
I pledge to this exercise, I found it in Boxing, and to this day, still kills my upper abs (currently in pain, did the Ab workout I posted, +40 more of these).
So, what is the best exercise overall in your opinion?

Great for cardio and overall fitness
preferably with a ball of the spherical/oval variety to chase and someone to kick it into.
I hate running lol. I mean, I have to do it for fitness, but I hate it so much lol. It is a great cardio exercise though.

because someone says they're so.
Too long I've been afraid of
losing love I guess I've lost.

and you can't pull me down.

Even DDR can be fun, you don't even realise you're working out but yet you can burn up to 600 calories an hour. I played it a lot this summer whenever I was bored, and it was fun, but also helped me lose quite a bit of weight. I also like swimming because it's relaxing, especially if you're alone, and you don't feel warm or gross or sweaty. (Atleast I don't.)

If it's for muscle growth in the mid section, regular crunches (NOT SIT-UPS, THEY ONLY WORK MOST ON YOUR HIPS) and cross crunches are the most effective if done correctly.
If it's for muscle growth in the lower body, I can say doing squats and calf raises.
If it's for reinforcing the lower back (WHICH IS SO IMPORTANT), I can say doing planks are the best. Also doing the superman on your belly helps allot.
Cardio = Fat loss:
Any sport that makes you move constantly.

If it's for muscle growth in the upper body, I can say pull-ups and push-ups are the most effective if done correctly with different techniques.
Those are good, especially for muscle endurance but I wouldn't say they're the best for muscle growth or strength for that matter. Pull-ups combined with a vast workout of bar bell curls, lateral pull downs etc will give you the best results.

I don't think there is anything that can work out pretty much your whole upper body than doing pull ups.
