Deadlifts And Broomstick Twists

Three (3!) grown men in the gym today doing "broomstick twists". Seriously. Stop doing those. Stop doing crunches. What a waste of your precious, limited time in life. You should take those minutes and hug your kids or do something useful instead.

3A) Good Morning
3B) Stability Ball "Stir the Pot" (This exercise is described in the latest Men's Health and in this blog post:
