    Top 10 Mass Building Exercises.

    Lets talk about Mass Building Exercises, I will just name what are the most important exercises IMO to build quality Mass. Is not this Top 10 on my list here are the only ones. One thing this moves have in common is they all are compound exercises. Why compound?? simply, Isolation exercises do not cause enough growth in your body due to the fact they will not recruit enough muscle fibres and you will never lift as heavy as you do on a compound. Most ppl always include this moves in their workout even without know this are the ones to build more mass on their body. One big mistake I`ve seen and experience my self is the use of isolation exercises to work on one specific body part with underdevelop while looking to growth. I was confused so I went to do my reaserch and look for few diffrent opinions. THe compound exercises are exactly what you need for those underdevolop muscles. When muscle mass is already at your desire point or goal isolation moves take place for a more define muscle. Here is my top 10 share yours so we all can get something out of this thread.

    1) Deadlifts - No question is the king of muscle mass, simply your whole body gets to work.

    2)Squats - Almost entire body is use to Squat, make sure go deep as you can.

    3)Bentover rows - Great back builder move, form is crucial while performing this exercise to avoid injuries same goes with Dl and squats

    4)Pull ups - a body weight or weighted move that helps back, Biceps, foremars, grip etc. Good to do Pull ups at least 2-3 times per week

    5)Bench Press - Def one of everyones favorite, some prefer incline over flat but either ways you chest is the target muscle.

    6)Military press - One of my fav ones, works shoulders as a primary muscle but also hits Tri`s and upper chest ) not the same case if do it behind the neck). No matter seated or standing.

    7)Dips - again another great move that can be perform body weight or weighted, helps a lot with tri`s and chest. Also hit back and rear delts as well.

    8)Clean and press - targets shoulder, arms, chest, back and even lower body. Proper technique is need it for this exercise due to the explosiness on the movement is used to lifting the weights.

    9)Shrugs - traps is primary target but also helps with back, arms, your grip is challenge when go heavy(no straps bitch) and sholders.

    10)Lat pulls - while hits your lats also chest, tri`s bi`s and whole back gets some a well.

    None of this exercises is for most part leave to the side by most workouts programs you can try. Some programs only include just a few isolation move while a mass building goal is aim it. Lets share which ones work for you and how you combine this for your specicfics goals.

    You hit it on the head bro! Skull crushers are one of my fav's also and wide grip bb curls will give you a peak on your bicep like big poppa pump Bent over rows are dangerous, as soon as you loose forum and round your back you will be struggling to stand for the next week. I am going through it right now
    Enjoy Your Ride!

    I usually just do tricep kickbacks and the hip adductor machine for mass...
    The harder I work, the luckier I get.

    OMG, the mass that the hip adductor will add to your legs in just one week is astounding! I didn't even eat anything for one whole week but gained 12 lbs because I used the adductor so much!

    I always like bringing my CHAINS to the gym. Which means weighted pull ups & dips. Plus added to the machines for extra weight and a 45 or two hooked to it. helps with building MASS.
