Some of the best bodybuilding exercises include: push-ups, dips, chin-ups, sit-ups and squats. The great things about these exercises is that they can be done at home and do not require the use of any equipment.
Push-ups are great for working the chest, shoulders and triceps. A push-up is performed by spreading the hands shoulder width apart, pulling the abs in, tucking the chin in and squeezing the gluts. Push your body up, lower and repeat for as many reps as you can.
Dips also give the chest, shoulder and triceps a good workout. A dip is performed by putting each hand on a chair, locking the elbows and lowering one's body to the ground. These exercises should be repeated for as many reps as you can do, and over time increase the reps.
Chin-ups are exercises that are performed by pulling one's self up over a bar. A person can exercise his or her back muscles and biceps. If a person wants to exercise the back muscles, he or she should use a wide overhand grip. If he or she wants to exercise the biceps, a closer underhand grip should be used.
Sit-ups are one of the best exercises for strengthening the abdominal muscles. They are done by laying flat on the floor, lifting one's head and tightening the abs. Side crunches should also be performed because they give the obliques a workout. Sit-ups and crunches should be performed every workout.
Squats are exercises that work the gluts and the legs. They are performed by dropping the buttocks until the thighs are parallel to the floor. Again, this exercise should be performed for as many reps as you can do.
Additionally, those who are trying to burn fat should also perform circuit training. Circuit training has to do each exercises and then move to the next with no rest in between. For example, do and set of squats, then a set of push-ups, a set of pull ups, a set of dips, a set of sit-ups and then go back to the squats, etc. Circuit training helps burn fat and build muscle at the same time.
