Last night I was sitting on the throne dropping a duece. I was reading Muscles and fatness, Okay flame me, I fly alot and I need something to pass the time.
Anyways, As I was searching for a bullshit advertisement to wipe my ass with, I came across this gem on page 78 of the Feberuary issue.
I do not claim to be a fitness guru, but this exercise did not make sense to me. I understand the benefits of doing shoulder shrugs and I do them religously.
I have never heard of doing them on a bench, especially inclined.
I hope this is only a misprint, if not this explains why the general public who reads this crap is referred to as sheep.
To justify my rant I attempted this exercise last night. The only muscle that really had a work out was my abs, from sitting 155#'s on them while trying to shrug it.
I also tried it differently and placed the barbell behind my bench and attempting to shrug it while sitting on the bench with it inclined, and like the article says I tried it at various inclines.
This article should be retitled, How to injure yourself in one easy step.
This might be thier way to emphasis more people to work other means of traing into thier routine, like donut curls, or double whopper w/cheese crunches.
The need to keep thier writers on swiss balls and leave the real workout to people who have enough sense not to print this kind of bullshit.
I'm not the smartest man in the world, but don't you think one of thier fitness gurus would have caught this mistake.
