Default Overrated and underrated

I saw this topic on another forum and thought I would bring it up here.

What are the most overrated and underrated routines or exercises.

I'll start.

Overrated exercise: dumbbell laterals
Underrated exercise: close grip bench presses

Overrated routine: anything high volume that takes over an hour
Underrated routine: powerlifting routines for muscle mass

Overrated exercise: close grip bench presses

Before I get everyone all mad, I believe high volume routines are ok for some, but I think they are the most overrated routines because of how they are pushed in the magazines.

Good topic.


Overrated exercise: Flyes. I just don't see the usefulness of this exercise as it tweaks the shoulders and doesn't overload the chest. Grind, shoulders, grind.

Underrated exercise: Good mornings. This has to be at the top of the list.

Overrated routine: Anything labeled as the be all end all for all.

Underrated routine: Max-stim. Even though I don't like resting between each rep, the idea of controlled fatigue is worth exploring.
