5 Time-Wasting Exercises You Can Stop Now

Exercising regularly is one of the best ways to keep yourself fit. Even if you aren’t trying to lose weight, you should exercise at least thrice a week. Be it in the gym or outdoors, exercise helps reduce stress, improves memory, promotes brain cell repair, and has many other health benefits. Squats, lunges, deadlifts, and bench dips are considered to be the best exercises that you can do. While most exercises are good for you, a few of them do very little to burn fat. Are you wasting your time by doing those exercises? Read on to find out.


How often do you see people sweating it out while doing this popular exercise? Unfortunately, you can do 1000 repetitions of it but it will only show results when you have little or no body fat.  

Front Raisesexercise

Since front raises is one of the simplest exercises to build shoulder muscles, its results are disappointing. You’d be better off doing the overhead press or side raises, which require you to put in more effort. 

Leg Extensionexercise

This is a regular feature in almost everyone’s routine on leg day. But it barely helps you tone your quadriceps, while stressing your leg muscles. Doing it regularly will lead to long-term damage.

Calf Raisesexercise

Most leg exercises like leg press, squats, and lunges, target your calf muscles. Doing additional calf raises is simply unnecessary, and you could spend that time doing some steady state cardio.

Bicep Curlsexercise

Ineffective and boring. Those are the best words to describe this exercise that is done by almost every second person in the gym. The Hammer Curl is a great alternative if you are looking to bulk up your biceps.
