If you google beginner workout programs, strength programs, or even bodybuilding programs lately, you’ll see one major similarity:
The barbell squat, bench, and deadlift.
Don’t get me wrong, I’m not about to knock any of these exercises because they’re great.
But do you really need them to make progress?
The flat out answer is no.
I’ve trained with a lot of people over the years and the majority of people don’t care about being the biggest or strongest person in the world.
They just want to look and feel better.
The truth is you don’t need to spend months and years perfecting the squat, bench, and deadlift just to look and feel better.
Sure you can if you want to, but you could also do other exercises and get great results.
For example, instead of:
Barbell squats –> Goblet squats
Barbell bench –> Dumbbell incline bench
Barbell deadlifts –> Weighted hyperextensions
As long as you get stronger over time with these other options, you’ll still get great results.
I am not a powerlifter.
If you’re not a powerlifter either, you don’t have to train like one to get results.
And if you’re looking for a way to get results without living in the gym or giving up all your favorite foods, then read my ebook here:
