I’m giving away my secrets here, so read carefully. Why? Because I know you need to get fit more than I need to hold on to my valued information!

What if I told you that you could walk into a gym with little or no fitness experience and surpass the strength progress of almost every muscle-head there? Well, it’s possible with very little actual gym-time. The following 5 exercises, and their variations, will pack muscle on your whole body AT ONCE in just 1.5 hours of gym-time a week.

1. Deadlift

2. Pull-Up

3. Squat

4. Bench

5. Press

What makes these guys king is their incorporation of multiple muscle groups. Deadlifting, when done correctly, works all the muscle groups a wrist curl, back extension, glute-bridge, hamstring curl, leg extension, plank, and shrug does-- all in one move!!!

I’m not saying there is no place for planks and shrugs, but they are accessory moves. They help progress the bigger lifts and they have their place, but NOT as a main staple in a progressive program that yields strength and fitness results.

Think of accessory lifts as sides to a main dish. They provide the extra variety and flavor you don’t get from meat, but it’s not a proper meal without the main course!
