3 Big Lifts to Catapult Your Strength

Everyday you watch exercise TV shows, read fitness magazines or hear the tips in the gym, there seems to endless debatable exercises that promise you to get you fit in no time.

The truth is that no matter how good or promising the exercises or movements are, it takes time for your body to learn, adapt and grow. You also need to watch your nutrition.

I know most people, women in particularly, don't want to look like or train like a powerlifter. Sooner than later, you'll need to develop some basic strength in order to lift more weights that are challenging enough to your body.

The best or most basic total-body strength-development exercises are (based on barbell):

#1 Squat: for quadriceps, core muscles and overall lower body strength

#2 Bench Press: for chest, triceps, front shoulders

#3 Deadlift: for hamstrings, glutes, biceps, forearms

Mastering these big 3 lifts will help you build overall strength and muscles. All 3 exercises engage your core muscles (abs, obliques, lower back) for strength, balance and stabilization. You see, by doing just these 3 exercises, you have worked out all the major mucles in a big way.

There are variations to each of the 3 exercises. Unless you have major orthopaedic problems, most people can learn and perform them correctly or with modifications with a good trainer.

Learn these exercises correctly. Master them. You'll see your results quicker.
