Come on. Now I am going to have to search for examples of a lot of these. Since you have so much time on your hands, how about a vid of you doing the entire list. Other people doing the exercises are acceptable, but it is your list, though.

(Kidding about the time on your hands)

Hahaha… well sorry I made your life so difficult ;D

You should be able to find videos for most of these on You Tube… you just have to hope that the video you watch is actually the person doing the movement CORRECTLY with good form… Fat chance! haha =D

But seriously… if you REALLY have a question about some of the exercises, post them and I will try to find vids =D

Bump… some new exercises =D

Thanks for the list.

I looked up some of the ones I didn’t know and will probably give them a try. I had no idea what a Hack Squat Sissy Squat was.

thanks again

OG - you are more than welcome! I will continue to update it as my knowledge base grows! =D
