Top 8 Bodybuilding Exercises For Size And Strength

When designing an effective bodybuilding weight lifting plan, care should be taken to ensure that you hit the Master 8 bodybuilding movements each week. If you do this, you will gain strength and size. Your body will have not have a choice! Remember, it is not how how many exercises you do, but what you do with the most important ones!

Deadlift - The core mass builder. Done on back days, it adds pounds of muscle to your back and glutes. Always start back day with it.

Squat - The granddaddy of them all! Squat first on leg day. Go heavy with a spotter. Break parallel on each squat, or don't bother coming to the gym.

SLDL - Stiff-Leg Deadlifts. They make the hamstrings pop and bring out lower back detail.

Rows - Barbell or dumbbell rows should follow deadlifts on back day. They will make you thick.

Bench Press - The standard staple of chest training. Warm up, lift heavy, and so lots of sets.

Incline Bench Press - Use a 2:1 or a 3:1 ratio for upper:flat chest movements. The upper chest is the shelf where all your trophies will one day be laid.

Pullups - Always on back day. Chins are preferable, but pulldowns work as well. They make your lats wide and forearms strong.

Military Press - Turn those shoulders into cannonball delts. Lift medium to heavy. Warm up. Never force reps and risk ijury.

This should be 90% of your Training program. Three to four days per week. Every movement, every week. You will not fail.
