Must-Read: How to Build Strength
Since the dawn of time, man has been trying to build their bodies. At first, it was more about simple things like having to kill predators, having to climb in order to get food, and having to fight one another over said food. But while the reasons have changed (now it’s certainly more about performing well in sports and attracting ladies), man still wants to get his body in tip-top shape. Luckily, seeing as we’ve been doing it for so long at this point, there are certainly some ideal ways that we know will definitely help build muscle.
So today we’re heading over to Men’s Fitness where they have a list of ways that you can build strength
1. Own the “big four.”
The squat, deadlift, bench press, and shoulder press are the best strength-building exercises, period. The chinup and row are great moves too, but don’t make them the focus of your workout — they can be assistance lifts to complement the bench and shoulder press, keeping your pulling muscles in balance with the pressing ones.
2. Use barbells first.
Forget all the fad equipment. The barbell is king, the dumbbell is queen, and everything else is a court jester — it may have its place, but it’s not essential. Start your workouts with barbell exercises, such as the “big four,” as described above. Barbells let you load a lot of weight, and lifting heavy is the first step toward getting stronger. Once your heaviest strength exercises are out of the way, you can move on to dumbbell and bodyweight training.
So head on over to the link above and check out their other 8 ways in order to build strength without a doubt. And then get to lifting.
