Squat- I told you... nothing fancy. This exercise makes your quadriceps (front of thigh) work like crazy. Check out all variations of this exercise as well. Who knew a yoga pose called 'Goddess' could make you quiver from exhaustion?
Bicep Curl- Work those arms! Our arms need strength, and this exercise provides it. It's probably most recognized exercise out there, but that's because it works.
Push Ups- Enough said! Check link out anyway. It shows variations and proper form. Remember we want to do this right way.
Bent Over Row- This one is a little tricky, but well worth it. It develops a strong middle back. Think of starting your lawn mower and you'll get motion down in a jiffy.
These 5 exercises represent different major muscle groups- abs, thighs, arms, chest and back. Those that are serious about becoming healthy and fit really want nothing more than perfect program. That perfect program is unfortunately not same for everyone. The good news is that with these 5 exercises, you have foundation. Add some cardio, flexibility and nutrition in mix and you'll see amazing results.
Heck, I'll even provide a FREE strength training log! I am always available to help out too. After all, it is what I do :)
