Top 10 Weights Exercises You Never Heard Of

By January 20, 2012

Follow me on:

Okay, you probably did know about some of these, but for the general gym goer, a few of them are not all that well known. Some of them are bodyweight only, and some require equipment.

And, several are tricky to perform and need a little practice and perhaps experience in resistance exercise.

Another great exercise is the 8-count bodybuilder. All you need is yourself and a little floor space:

1) begin with a body weight squat (hips down and weight in your heels)
2) drop your hands to the ground and kick your legs out to plank position
3) lower down to a pushup
4) explode back upward into plank (try to make your hands leave the floor)
5) kick your legs out to form an x while maintaining plank position
6) bring your legs back in
7) pull your feet up under your chest
8) jump straight up
