I’ll start off with a caveat: I’m a 50 year old hunk of gorgeousness who has only been lifting for just over two years so I know the sum total of fuck all and I appreciate the knowledge on this site very much. Well done you lot.
I was wondering what everyone’s favourite assistance exercises are and why.
I have done Lying L-Flys since I started and I’m convinced these are the reason I have never had any shoulder issues. I do 100 reps once a week only using 5.5lbs.
My second favourite is Wrist Curls / Rolls. I’m not sure if its the correct terminology. Basically I have 16.5lbs attached to a rope, rope to a 2" pole and roll them up and down vertically for 50 reps once a week, arms held straight down. I think this is great for grip work and my forearms could smash a hole in a brick wall they are so hard from lactic acid afterwards.
Thanks for your indulgence meatheads.
