Over the past six years this site's amassed an enormous amount of content. To help you find the highlights, I'll be taking a wander through the archives from time to time.
This week - The Forgotten Lifts III.

As you're probably well aware, I absolutely love sampling some of the older, less common exercises on a regular basis.

Some of these are still ideally suited to my training, and get used frequently; others are just fun to challenge yourself with. Whichever way they're used, here are a few more of The Forgotten Lifts :

Stalkers may wish to track his every move via Twitter, Google+ or Facebook; everyone else is cordially invited to hop over to his online home. Enjoy.
