The gym is a pretty amazing place. It's a space where you can whip your body into shape, but it's also the perfect viewing spot for some seriously sexy action.

Don't worry, you're not alone. Many of us find ourselves distracted by the eye candy on offer, but instead of shyly darting our eyes away, we've put together the ultimate collection of the five hottest exercises that never fail to get us hot and heavy.

1. Chin ups

Is there anything more attractive than seeing a man hurl his muscular body off the ground? We don't think so! This super manly exercise is a sure-fire hit with us ladies and never fails to have us basking in their oh so manly glory.

2. Bicep curls

Bicep curls, the timeless lady killer. A little flex of this muscle can have us feeling feverish and faint in a flash.

3. Bench press

We all love a bit of horizontal action, so what could be better than a sweaty guy lying down and pushing something heavy off his chest? Absolutely nothing in our books.

4. Ab exercises

You can never go wrong when it comes to showing off those rock hard abs. Opposite arm to leg, with a medicine ball, with your legs up, doesn't bother us! Just keep crunching, boys.

5. Push ups

An oldie but a goodie, this classic workout is easy on the eyes in every way imaginable. There is something incredibly sexy about the push up and guys – we could watch you do it all day long.

Ahem, eyes up girls, there's still a few more hours left in the work day. No plans after work? Why not head to the gym and bask in the beauty of these ridiculously attractive exercises? Who knows, you might just be inspired.
