Picking which workout moves to do is kind of like picking out a new pair of high-waisted leggings; it’s pretty hard to go wrong. Most importantly, you’re staying active, and pushing your body to get stronger. That said, when you really break it down to the nitty-gritty, some exercises are just a bit more effective than their very-similar counterparts.
And whether you’re in a time crunch or just want to work your way to results that much faster, finding the most efficient exercises on the block can make all the difference.
So now here’s the real test: Do you think you can determine which moves are better than others? Give it a go! (Don’t worry, we fill you in on trainer-recommended picks, too.)
