It occurred to me last night that I don’t like exercises that have you seated or lying down, to include the bench press. All of my favorites are standing: squats, dead lifts, good mornings, push presses, barbell rows, cleans, snatches, etc. Seems these days no one thinks they’re working out if they’re not hooked up to some damn machine.
It reminds me of an old Dr. Squat article called “Stand and Deliver” which was about the merits of having to stand to perform Oly lifts, if I’m not mistaken.
I think Shug’s mentioned a while back how he was thinking about the value of loading the spine, as in good mornings, dead lifts, squats and the like.
Anybody else think this way? Anybody have any more good Ol’ Time standing exercises?
