The Trio That Has Disappeared from the Common
Nobody likes to be

In order to build a healthy, impressive physique, you must work all
your muscles in coordination with each other, not just the ones
that you so fruitfully desire. Building your body without working
your shoulders, for example, is like building a house without a
roof. The job is incomplete.
Yet, there are many muscle groups that, for whatever reason,
trainers just refuse to work.
They just lounge there in their dormant state, weak, miserable, and
craving a morsel of attention.
Here are perhaps the three of the body parts that men neglect the
most and why we opt to neglect them:
ABDOMINALS: This tops the here; nothing can make or break your
physical exterior the way your midsection does. Yet, a vast
majority of gung-ho muscle blasters have a one-track mind:
There’s certainly nothing wrong with thinking
‘big’, but when was the last time you pointed to a
jacked-up specimen and said, “Wow, that guy’s abs are
Unfortunately, too many male trainers are overdosing on machismo.
Their primary concerns are focused on bulging biceps, gargantuan
shoulders, eye-popping lat muscles, and a breathtaking chest.
Perhaps the fact that you so often see women firing away on their
midsections – grinding through crunches, scissors, and leg
raises – it is perceived as a less-than-manly routine.
Trust me, guys. Without a hardened layer of bricks set above your
waistline, your foundation is far from complete.
LEGS: There are three reasons why most of us completely dread doing
Pain, pain, and more pain.
Sitting in a leg press machine must feel a lot like sinking into an
electric chair because both drain the life out of you. The
proceeding leg extensions are often so excruciating, they can truly
bring tears to your eyes.
Then when it’s all over, and you feel like your legs have
just gone 12 with Tyson, you have the couple days of recovery to
look forward to. That’s when your legs are so sore you need a
cane just to get up and down a flight of stairs.
Like your household cleaning day, it’s easy to scratch leg
days off your calendar. Nobody actually looks forward to them.
But let’s face it. If you’re built like a gorilla from
the waist up, yet look like an ostrich from the waist down,
you’re simply going to look as ridiculous as you feel.
FOREARMS: It’s not necessarily an intentional thing when you
abandon your forearms. After all, you can get a nice pump in your
forearms when you’re working your biceps and your back.
But working your forearms is a lot like flossing your gums. You
never really think about them.
But remember, if you’re a serious competitor, your arms
consist of more than just your biceps and your triceps. Completing
this family of three are your forearms, and there are many
exercises – wrist curls and reverse curls – to insure
that your guns are locked and loaded within your arsenal of
