Successful bodybuilding involves bringing together disparate elements like nutrition and rest but choosing the ideal exercises is essential.
Within this guide, we’ll outline the barbell/dumbbell exercises that will enable new bodybuilders to develop the general strength and body conditioning needed.
Initially, beginners should aim to complete two sets of ten to twelve reps but after a couple of weeks, when you have developed sufficient control and underlying strength, experiment with one group of six to eight reps to failure. This will maximize your muscle growth and give you the impetus to proceed to another stage of growth.
Meanwhile, get to work using all these exercises to become accustomed to working your muscles.
Start training four times each week and work body parts on the following basis not forgetting to incorporate rest days:
CHEST: Bench press, flyes
UPPER BACK: Prone reverse flye, seated opposite flye, bent over row, pullover
SHOULDER: Lateral raise, shoulder press, upright row
TRICEPS: Lying triceps extension
BICEPS: Curl, concentration curl
FOREARMS: Wrist curl, wrist extension
LEGS: Squat, leg curl, calf raise
