It’s not just the guys; even girls aren’t immune to checking out the opposite sex in the gym. The only difference being they’ve mastered the art of being discrete in the process. It’s okay if you can’t get your eyes off the spandex clad goddesses in the gym.
Let’s face it, most men get a gym membership so they can impress some ladies. No matter the reason you joined a gym, it’s all good until it gets you to the weight room. Apart from impressing girls, lifting weights helps you in more ways than it is credited for.
While there are exercises men love to see women do – like squats and donkey kickbacks—women have their own share of exercise they like to see the males perform. Without any further ado, these are the exercises women love to see men do in the gym:
Women admire booty action as much as men do. Not only are squats great leg builders, they show off your overall strength. You don’t even have to be lifting big weights to be noticed by the girls in your gym. Squats, leg presses, leg curls, lunges, anything butt-related is attractive to women.
Working out your legs can bring you a lot of female attention in the gym. Skipping leg day leads to an unbalanced physique, which is also the complete opposite of what we are trying to achieve here. Squat deep and reap the rewards.
Nothing is sexier to women than guys lifting heavy ass weight off the ground. This sweat-dripping, vein-popping, adrenaline-pumping exercise can fascinate women who like to see heavy weights being thrown around in the gym.
Women subconsciously imagine you’re strong enough to sweep them off their feet – literally. This is the right time for you to start deadlifting, since many girls are still waiting for their knight in shining armor.
Pull-ups show off the muscles in your upper body. Most women can’t do a pull-up, and this is the reason they appreciate men who can pull their body weights up. Brownie points for guys who can do pull-ups with weights around their waists.
Pull-ups are an exercise that can be related most closely to real-life situations. CrossFit, spartan races, and even reality TV shows have workouts, obstacles and tasks that include pull-ups, and if you’re anything like most people, you want to be a part of such events. So, start prepping for it.
Dips are a great way of showing off your striations. Don’t hold back to take off your shirt if you have some serious definition in your chest and shoulders. Adding weights is a great way to draw attention and get in better shape.
Just don’t add on more weight than you can handle. Ask someone to spot you while you’re doing this exercise. Even if you don’t need a spotter during the set, you might need help taking the weight off when you’re done.
5. Bench Press
“Women treasure your chest as much as you do theirs,” says Emily Dubberley, a sex expert based in the UK. “Touching, kissing, and licking a man’s chest is undoubtedly a turn-on for most women.”
This should be reason enough to get your chest in shape. Barbell and dumbell bench presses are incredibly effective in getting a chiseled chest. Bench press has long been the gold standard of strength and sexiness. Lifting big weights on the bench press is an exhibit of your upper body strength.
Having big muscles isn’t enough. Women love functional physiques. You should be able to run as hard as you lift. Cardiovascular health represents your strength and stamina to a woman, who uses it to determine how long you would last in bed.
Don’t limit yourself to the gym when it comes to cardio. Go for a run in the park or play a game of basketball with your friends. Ladies love guys with a social circle. Even if you don’t get the girl, you will surely develop a better bond with your buddies.
