A Positive Bad Example I

Sometimes a good way to make a point is to show a really bad example. For workouts, I have tried to link to good workout examples and provide you information and books to help you make your own.

But sometimes an example of sheer badness is a good example.

If your workout looks more like this than like Starting Strength, one of the beginner routines here, or WS4SB3, you don't have a good workout. You've got a "pump your biceps and go one" workout that won't accomplish anything.

That post is a brilliant example of a bad problem. It's funny, but in a way it's more sad. Many young guys will workout with programs that look just like that.

Don't be that guy.
