Best Muscle Building Exercises


Best Muscle Building Exercises

You can look into any muscle-building magazine or book and you’ll find literally hundreds of different exercises, all claiming to be superior to one another. Keep in mind that any exercise that produces a positive adaptation response is a good thing. There just happens to be great exercises and amazing exercises. Let’s take a look at the exercises that science has shown to be some of the best muscle building exercises.

Best Muscle Building Exercises

The Squat

You’re probably not surprised that this one is on the list. Squats have long been considered one of the best exercises around. In fact, every workout program needs to incorporate some form of squat because of the number of benefits it provides. Check out this link for a full breakdown of the squat.

Main Muscles activated:
  • Quadriceps
  • Hamstrings
  • Glutes
  • Calves
  • Hip flexors
  • Abdominals
Benefits of the Squat:
  • Shown to dramatically boost growth hormone levels
  • Increases overall performance in other areas such as jumping
  • Increases bone density and strength
The Deadlift

Another classic of the bodybuilding world, the deadlift is a compound movement that packs the most bang for your buck. Check out this link for a full breakdown of the deadlift.

Main Muscles activated:

  • Hamstrings
  • Lower back
  • Glutes
  • Calves
  • Hip flexors
  • Abdominals
Benefits of the Deadlift:
  • Due to the compound movement, fat burning potential is maximized with this exercise
  • Helps to manage and improve lower back pain

The Bench Press

Last but not least is the bench press. When performed correctly, the bench press is an excellent way to build plenty of upper body muscle mass. Like the other two exercises above, to maximize your gains you need to perfect the form and posture of the movement. Check out this link for a full breakdown of the bench press.

Main Muscles activated:
  • Chest
  • Triceps
  • Shoulders
  • Abdominals
Benefits of the Bench Press:
  • Dramatically increases your ability to throw (great for athletes)
  • Supports lean muscle tissue growth
  • Increases your “push” strength (think about generating maximum force production)
