There's just no way around it, in order to build or maintain muscle you have to do exercises that demand the most out of your body. We're taking about the hard stuff here: Barbell Squats, Standing Overhead Barbell Presses, Pull Ups, Parallel Dips, Barbell Bicep Curls, Stiff Legged Dead Lifts. Next time you go to the gym, look around and see just how many people are doing these exercises, probably not too many!
These exercises are so productive in building muscle, that if you did these and only these, your body would be unrecognizable to your friends and relatives in a very short amount of time.
I will detail each exercise in the upcoming blogs starting with the most productive exercise ever, The Barbell Squat.
