Best Muscle Building Workouts: Squat, Bench Press & Deadlift

When it comes to the most gruelling but effective workouts for building muscle then the 3 major compound exercises must be included, which are the squat, bench press and deadlift.

The squat is referred to as the ‘king of exercises’; it affects nearly every muscle group in your body, either actively lifting the weight or stabilizing it across your shoulders. It is also the single most effective exercise at increasing a bodybuilder’s overall size.

The squat is referred to as the ‘king of exercises’; it affects nearly every muscle group in your body, either actively lifting the weight or stabilizing it across your shoulders. It is also the single most effective exercise at increasing a bodybuilder’s overall size; you won’t see many small bodybuilders who can squat 500lbs for 6 reps! The squat builds muscle all over a bodybuilder’s frame.

The main chest builder is the bench press; it is a movement which will affect the whole upper body, and a strong bench press will result in a well developed chest, shoulder and tricep area, as well as also working the upper back.

The deadlift is a full-body movement much like the squat and will build muscle mass in all areas of the body. In fact many consider it superior to the squat in inducing pure hypertrophy. Caution must be used however, as improper deadlift technique can cause permanent damage to the back and spine. When the weight used becomes too heavy for your hands to grip, use lifting straps so as not to limit your back development.
