Fitness Tip: Be Prepared to Substitute One Exercise Over Another (Short Version)

If you’re to perform an exercise, but the equipment you’re suppose to use isn’t available, you can try using a substitute exercise.

For example, instead of:
Overhead Shoulder Press (barbell) [3 sets of 10 reps]

You can try:
Overhead Shoulder Press (dumbbells) [3 sets of 10 reps]

Also, you can perform the same exercise, but with a different rep range.

For example, instead of:
Lateral Raise (dumbbell) [3 sets of 15 reps] [20 pounds]

You can try:
Lateral Raise (dumbbell) [3 sets of 10 reps] [25 pounds]
Or
Lateral Raise (dumbbell) [3 sets of 20 reps] [15 pounds]
