- Do these 3 exercises and you will look great by @petertzemis
Pullups are one of the most straightforward exercises — pull your body up to a bar and then lower yourself back down. If you've ever tried to do one, however, you know that their straightforwardness is exceeded by their intensity. It takes strength, both physical and mental, to perform pullups.
Some have even called them the "toughest exercise ever." Although they're tough, and may still evoke a feeling of dread if you were among those forced to do them in gym class, there's good reason to include pullups in your weekly exercise routine. Your hard work will reap bountiful rewards. Squats obviously help to build your leg muscles (including your quadriceps, hamstrings, and calves), but they also create an anabolic environment, which promotes body-wide muscle building.
In fact, when done properly, squats are so intense that they trigger the release of testosterone and human growth hormone in your body, which are vital for muscle growth and will also help to improve muscle mass when you train other areas of your body aside from your legs.
So squats can actually help you improve both your upper and lower body strength. Dips are definitely a overall “mass movement” for the pushing muscles of the upper body, but depending on how you use them, they can better target either the chest or triceps. By leaning the torso forward (at about a 45 degree angle) and letting the elbows flair out to the sides, the chest will be forced to perform the brunt of the work. However, if you remain upright and keep the elbows tucked into your body, the triceps will get the more significant “butt kicking!”
