Manly Exercises That Women Should Do
4. Clean And Jerk
The clean and jerk can look like a scary exercise but it is also very effective at working out many muscle groups at once including those in the back, butt, arms, shoulders and legs. If you are worried, you can use light weights or even just the empty bar. To do the exercise, squat down and grip the bar. With one quick, explosive movement jerk the bar up to your chin. If you want, you can stop there or you can add the jerk movement by rotating your hands under the bar and squatting a little before standing up and pushing the bar up over your head.
5. Biceps Curl
Biceps curls can be done with kettlebells, dumbbells or even a weight bar. Whichever one you choose, keep your elbows close to your body to avoid injury and get the best workout. If using a bar, try changing your grip to work out your muscles in different ways.
6. Pull Ups
Men with huge muscles often like to do pull ups to show off at the gym, but why should they have all the fun? This exercise that works out the lats and shoulders is pretty hard so you might not be able to just jump right into doing one right away. Try building up to one by first practicing the move on a weight machine that removes some of your weight or by using a chair to help until you can finally do one on your own.
