1. Let’s start form the arms. Biceps and Triceps are very impressive muscles, impressive meaning that not only do they provide the arms with strength, but also the give the arm an impressive look. Just look at basketball players, many of them have strong arms and their biceps, triceps and shoulders deliver and impressive look. The road to a strong arm pumped up biceps and triceps is made out of curling (the movement of the elbows). Some people are misguided that if they make heavy curls they will get that impressive muscle definition of the arm muscles. In fact, to get that definition curling o 20-25 pounds of weights in 3 sets with 15 repetitions; that being followed with triceps extensions will deliver the results you want.

2. Back muscles are impressive as well. Never exclude Pull Ups – that is a hardcore workout very important for the back as Pushups are for the chest muscles. Now, Pull Ups can be very difficult for beginners, so the solution to that problem is The Lat Pull Down. When positioned on the Lat Pull Down exercise machine, instead of grabbing the bar with wide grip, grab it with an underhand grip. That way pull down the bar towards your chest and keep you back straight. In time the back will get stronger and stronger and you will feel the need to be challenged to more hardcore back exercises – like the Pull Ups. You will be able to perform this exercise in as much as sets and repetitions as you want.

3. Pushups and Pull Ups have a ‘brother’ – Squats. This exercise is also part of the hardcore family and delivers impressive results for the leg muscles. The tip here is to position your feet a bit wider than shoulder-length, toes pointing forward (not to the sides), once you lower yourself toward the floor stop when the thighs are parallel to the floor, use them to push yourself up.

4. Work on your core muscles with a Ball Crunch, Hanging Leg Rise and Bicycle Crunch – perform these exercises three times in the same order and pause in-between sets.

5. And last, but not least, Shoulders. Here is a simple exercise which has ‘reliable credentials’. Grab 2 dumbbells with 2 kg each (4.4 lb), straighten your arms to the sides so that they are parallel to the floor. Now, ‘draw circles on imaginary walls’ with your arms. Start with 5 circles moving forward followed with 5 circles backwards. This will trigger the entire shoulder muscle group
