The Most Important Muscles for Bodybuilding

By Lance Farr

Are you new to working out, or simply looking for a new routine? If you answered yes to either one of these questions, I’ll be the first to tell you that there are literally thousands of different workout routines out there, many of which do a great job at getting you into great shape.

While my tips will definitely set you off in the right direction, this in and of itself won’t be enough to make a difference. The real results will come from your consistent dedication when it comes to working these muscles.

The key here is to choose a few muscles that you’ll regularly work on. From there, you’ll have no problem learning which machines and weight exercises benefit which muscles. Here are the muscles that matter most.

Anyone serious about putting on muscle mass will need to regularly work out their chest muscles. Whether you’re benching some barbells or doing more focused exercises like inclined press, dips, or one of many others, any and every one of these will make a big difference.

The chest must be balanced out by the back. Doing pull-ups and other back exercises goes a very long way toward giving you some well-rounded muscle distribution.

Another integral muscle group is your shoulders, which also includes your traps. Fit a shoulder day into your workout routine.

Then, you must remember the arms. Biceps and triceps are two different muscle groups, and it’s important that you do exercises that are specific to each. Some people work both out together on the same day, and others like to divide it up.

The last essential muscle group that I’ll mention here is the legs. These are possibly the most important all in all, as many serious body builders say they would choose legs if they could only work out one muscle group.

You may also want to consider working on your stomach, in addition to your lower back. Both of these muscle groups have definite positive impacts on your overall appearance.
