Dr. O pillar exercises chin up

Según el Dr. Brett Osborn, un neurocirujano certificado, especialista en nutrición y experto de BPI Sports, hay cinco ejercicios principales que todos tienen que hacer: press en banco, peso muerto, press de hombros por encima de la cabeza, sentadillas y dominadas/chin ups. Sigue leyendo y viendo los videos para aprender cómo hacer cada uno correctamente.

Press en banco

The bench press is considered the benchmark of individual strength. In this short video, Dr. O explains the proper mechanics and the muscles you will engage with the exercise so you can get the most out of every rep.*

Peso muerto

The deadlift is a great exercise for your glutes, hamstrings and lower back, however many people do not perform them correctly. Dr. O takes you step by step:*

Overhead Shoulder Press

The overhead shoulder press is a staple upper body exercise. Start with the bar in an overhand grip, spaced a little wider than shoulder-width apart. Hold it chest high, right below your chin and prepare to perform the movement. Watch the video to learn the rest of Dr. O's tips.*

Best Test


The squat is one of those fundamental exercises that every routine should include. It's also very easy to do wrong (we've all seen the people at the gym doing quarter squats with way too much weight). Make sure you're using the proper form by watching Dr. O's short video.*

Pull up/Chin up

The pull up and chin up are very similar exercises, but they use different grips and target slightly different muscles. Dr. O will help you ensure you're doing each correctly and understand the importance of these differences.*

Now that you’ve mastered these five pillar exercises, head over to our YouTube channel and check out some of the other videos from Dr. O. In addition to fitness, he’s created content on the keto diet and the truth about Low T.
