Just for something a bit different

Had a conversation the other day where the old "aren't deadlifts bad for your back" comment popped up. So I thought, ok for shits and giggles why not brainstorm and take it a bit further and think of certain exercises that are either embraced by certain areas of the strength and fitness community or just have a stigma about them that you could just stereotype those exercises now.

I think the old school bodybuilder doing concentration curls is a classic old school stereotype.

What other examples can we think of that are primarily associated with a certain discipline?

Is bench press really stereotypical male? All the bro’s only do bench press when they have a group of mates to spot them all but two reps.
Gym bro/rat is the same thing really

And yes it is


Curls in the squat rack is a big no no, but I don't see this kind of behaviour much these days, most gyms have a preacher bench or 2 for that

Has to be female gym rats doing hip thrusts as the most common (100% so far) for their demographic and way more common amongst obvious demographics when doing a direct percentage comparison, in my experience :)

I think a gym bro goes in groups a gym rat is a lone dude.

I considered myself a gym rat. Always by myself.
I definitely prefer your type over... well this group of biatches basically screeching at each other while they had a conversation the other day.

Like I understand the gym's not a library- but its not some nightclub either where you yell over the music to one another. Ffs.
