Wow some of you fellas are kinda slow on the uptake! Congrats to those who saw the humor and larfed at it.
Yes, bench squat and deadlift are your main 3...that's why using them temporarily to get good at "real exercises" is HILARIOUS. Did you not read the article? It's lulz.
I seriously do not care at all who wrote for Men's Health. Just because a bunch of awesome guys wrote articles for them doesn't mean that THIS ARTICLE isn't lol-worthy. Because it is. Did you read it?
I'm pretty sure none of those authors would recommend using bench, squat, and deadlift in short 15 minute workouts on a temporary basis. I think most of them would say "do that shit all the time, YOU PUSSY". If you read the article...
Also, the guy doing deadlifts is using an overhand grip, not in a snatch grip. From what I understand, that's not the best idea ever. Squatting from a rack...ok I've read at least 10 times on this very site that your knee is weakest at 90 degrees, and that's the very position where you're starting this lift from a dead stop...probably also not the best idea ever.
Seriously, if you're gonna try to rag on me, at least read the load of shit article that I'm pointing and laughing at.
