Exercises

Elite athletes build workouts from a wide variety of exercises targeted to specific areas of the body—chest, back, core, legs, shoulders and arms. Weightlifting exercises that involve dumbbells, barbells and weight or cable machines are the most popular, but top athletes also use other training equipment [e.g., med balls, physioballs, Airex Pads, TRX straps] and perform bodyweight exercises to achieve specific athletic goals. Depending on their training goals, athletes can perform functional, multi-joint exercises that simultaneously engage multiple muscle groups [e.g., Lunges, Deadlifts, Push Presses] or exercises that isolate specific muscle groups [e.g., Bicep Curls, Leg Extensions]. Discover the exercises that the world’s best athletes regularly perform in their workout programs.
