Build Muscle With Compound Movements

One critical component to living healthier is building muscle.

According to Manning Summer, “The best exercises to do if you are trying to build muscle are compound movements including: squats, dead lifts, military press, bench press or bent over rows. Keep your repetition range between six and eight reps and do four to six sets of each exercise. You want to do these exercises ONLY three days a week — less is more.”

“A lot of people think that the more they work out, the more muscle they will gain. That is 100 percent false — especially for skinny people — and is a common misconception about building muscle. Most people are unaware that you need time for your muscles to grow.”

Here are some videos of compound exercises you can do after a full warm-up.

 

This won’t happen over night. It could take up to 6 weeks before you even see the first signs of a change, but it’s worth it.
