I don't have any particular dislike problem with musclegroups, I just don't do some exercises (from any of the musclegroups) because they are not usefull or are totally waste of time in my opinion, not just that I don't like them.
I choose my exercises this way, and I had to put away some exercises that I liked a bit.
And sometimes I don't do some exercises or exercise a particular bodypart, because I feel I don't need to, like calves for example.

I'm against the use of Smith machine, either for Squats or other movements.
And some other machines too.
I'm mostly lean-to free weights.

Welcome to the forum. When I was in the Army I had to do about a 1000 flutterkicks each day.

BBG made the point that he's never received any benefit from machines. I have mental issues with machines as well. They don't feel the same, so I've generally always avoided them.

BBG also mentioned lateral raises. I believe them to be one of the most over-rated exercises in the iron game.

And Brawny talk about effectiveness and exercise selection. That's how I generally plan my workouts. I use the most effective. Sometimes I'll try a different exercise as an experiment, but I rarely keep an exercise that doesn't feel effective.

Nothing screams gay like the abductor. Not that there's anything wrong with that...

And this is really gay too. It kind of says, look at my pooper....
