Deadlift

Some experts consider the deadlift to be the best and most efficient exercise of all time. A total body workout that pretty much works every muscle in your body, the deadlift is a must do exercise to incorporate if your goal is overall strength and fitness.  We like deadlifts.

Bench Press

The bench press can be misjudged as just a chest workout but in actuality it does much more than that. The bench press uses your shoulders, triceps, forearms, lats, pecs, traps, rhomboids, and pretty much every muscle in the upper body, but many do not know that when done correctly the bench press also uses the legs, hips, and lower back. All the benefits of the bench press put this exercise on par with the other compound exercises for overall strength and muscle development. 

Benefits:

  • Great upper body development
  • Helps Increase upper body strength
  • Helps to develop the Serratus Anterior (the muscles on the side of your core)
  • Helps promote upper body bone health and density
  • Helps promote natural hormone release in the body
  • Great for sports performance
  • Helps impress friends when asked "How much ya bench"?
