Are you ready to get into the best shape of your life? Let’s examine the top muscle exercises for adding new muscle to your frame!
The most useful muscle exercise you can do would have to most certainly be squats. They stimulate not only growth on the legs, but all over the body as well. The constant release of growth hormone into the body following a tough training day of squats is unmatched. Always train slowly and safely with squats, warming up with several sets of lighter weight movements to warm up the area. Keep your rep range in the 6 to 12 range for maximum effectiveness.
This is perhaps the most basic and simple movement of all – pick up the weight, and set it down! It is second only to the squat in terms of muscle exercises responsible for building up the most muscle mass. It is also an exercise which can lead to injury if performed incorrectly. Start the movement with hands on the bad about shoulders’ width apart. Slowly pull the weight up to your waist, and then lower it to the ground. Always wear a back brace on the heavier sets.
“How much ya bench?” That question has probably been asked a thousand times of every bodybuilder. It’s the most common measurement of strength that envelops lifters from newbies to experienced veterans. But the measurement is an accurate one. Any bodybuilder who can successfully move “3 wheels”, being 315 pounds, or “four wheels”, 405 pounds, certainly will have the muscle to back it up. Your own bench pressing should be conducted safely and confidently with a weight you can manage and a spotter close by to ensure you aren’t injured as you engage in building new chest muscle.
Nothing screams power and presence like a wide set of shoulders. If you seek that legendary V-shape torso, with the wide shoulders and lean waist, then you are going to want to add military presses to your workout routine. Keep your repetitions slow and controlled. Seated on a Smith bench, slowly press the weight up, then bring it down to a point just above your chin. Always warm up the area, and use a repetition range of 8 to 15 to ensure you aren’t going too heavy. An injury to your rotator cuff injury could sideline you for 6 to 8 weeks!
Nobody ever asks a bodybuilder to “flex a deltoid”. When a person asks a bodybuilder to “make a muscle”, it usually involves the arms and not the legs. Let’s face it, having big arms is essential, and barbell curls are one of the best muscle exercises for building great arms. Start with your hand shoulder width apart, using a weight you can control for 10 to 12 repetitions. Slowly curl the weight from your waist to your chin in a controlled motion.
There you have it – the top muscle exercises for transforming the current you into a bigger, stronger, and more powerful you. What are you waiting for – it’s time to get pumping!
