I hate this exercise
What exercise do you hate the most?

Do you continue to use it any way, or avoid it?

I hate squats because of my height and long limbs, but I like what squats do for me.

I hate the flat barbell bench press, but only because it confounds me... ruaaargh! :mad:

Not "built to bench" for starters, and for whatever other reasons, it just continues to be the most frustrating lift of all.

edit: But I continue to do it...

I hate any and all direct abdominal work. I avoid it at all costs. It is boring, painful, and I don't think it's that necessary.

Incline bench press...

1. Pull ups - but its a great exercise to build strength
2. Running - It gets to tiring, especially if done after lifting
3. Push ups - see running
4. OHP's - I take it as the 4th basic lift after Squats, DL and Bench.
5. Back dips for triceps - My shoulders give in
6. Hyperextensions - Idiotic position IMO
7. Lower abs - Hardly manage 5-6 in a set

But I will do them all anyway, if its must. I have already done them. No excuses.

Barbell rows. They tire out my lower back and do nothing for my back. There are about a million other movements that hit my back better.

Front squats. I do them twice a week. We tend to avoid the things we hate, and by instead doing it we will get stronger both mentally and in our weak points.
