Essential core exercises


Welcome to the EliteFitness.com Bodybuilding Site! Please join this discussion about Essential core exercises within the Weight Training & Weight Lifting category.

Excerpt: OK, as far as I am aware there are three core exercises which must be included in any well rounded weights programme. They are (in order of importance): Squats Deadlifts Bench press. Anyone agree or disagree? Also, am I correct in my opinion that deadlifts and squats are much the same exercise, but with the bar held in two different positions?

    Essential core exercises

    OK, as far as I am aware there are three core exercises which must be included in any well rounded weights programme. They are (in order of importance):

    Squats
    Deadlifts
    Bench press.

    Anyone agree or disagree?

    Well you're right as far as those exercises being essentail "core" exercices, but Deads and squats are not the same, they work 2 different muscle groups...

    Yes - they are core - meaning that hard work on these lifts will be responsible for the majority of your gains.

    Concerning the dead and the squat - they are not similar. They both involve a lot of muscles and don't involve the chest directly but other than that...
