  • Italic muscle exercise is optional.
    • The optional exercises maybe for a miscellaneous muscle group or maybe a second exercise for a muscle group previously exercised directly or indirectly in the same program.
    • Pick optional exercise only if the muscle is under par in comparison to the development, strength, or endurance of other muscle groups.
      • See low volume training.
      • In the case of a miscellaneous muscle group, the optional muscle group in question may be already exercised indirectly from another exercise elsewhere in the program.
        • See muscle analysis under each exercise.
  • Choose just one exercise for the lower back to avoid over-use injury.
    • See lower back for selecting complementary exercises.
