In this article, I would like to tell you about the effectiveness and benefits of the basic exercises, which are barbell squats, deadlift, bench press, and others.
Unlike isolating exercises, which affect one particular muscle, basic ones cause the work of numerous muscle groups, as well as the most massive muscles in the body. They trigger a variety of processes, both at the physical and hormonal levels. These exercises help to strengthen the body, form a correct posture, build muscle mass, and burn extra kilograms.
Also, basic exercises strengthen joints and skeleton, making you fitter and stronger. Yes-yes! They do make your joints stronger! Multi-joint exercises help to reduce physical pressure on joints of different parts of your body. Doing basic exercises will also save your time! You will not need to do dozens of isolating ones.
You will probably say that those “terrible” complex workouts are only needed for professional athletes, and it will be too complicated for you to lift heavy weights. I hasten to surprise you – this is not necessary! The main thing is the impact on muscles with the help of the correct technique of performing exercises, mechanics and a little physics. And small weights are enough for training.
So, if you decided to start training and do not know how to begin, the most effective way is to begin with basic exercises!
In the next article, we’ll talk with you about working with free weights.
