Dou want to build muscle across your entire body? You’re likely familiar with specific exercises that work parts of your body, but how can you combine these to give yourself the advantage of working all of your muscles? While it’s easy to hope for a simple exercise that will allow you to gain muscle fast, the key is to commit to several exercises that together will work all of your muscles.

If you’re looking for bodybuilding tips for every body part, consider the following and incorporate these exercises into your workout the next time you’re at the gym:

  • Burpees

Burpees have rightly gained a reputation – and something of a cult following – for its ability to burn fat and give your whole body a serious workout. To do a burpee, start by standing with your feet shoulder-width apart, then move into a squat and place your hands on the floor in front of you. Move yourself into push up position by kicking your feet back, then complete a push-up. Return your feet to their original position, stand up, and jump while bringing your arms together over your head. Burpees will likely be difficult if you’re a bit out of shape or have never performed them before, but they’ll get easier. Incorporate as many as you see fit into your routine, perhaps starting with 5 – 10. You can also easily adapt the generic burpee to your own routine if you choose to do so – you might like to bring in kettlebells or incorporate a jump over a bar after each burpee.

  • Crunch squats

This one is sure to work your abdominals and glutes. To begin, lie faceup, your lower back resting on a pillow. In one movement, crunch up into a squat before standing. This exercise is relatively simple, but it might prove harder than it appears, and it will give your muscles a real workout. When you’re confident in your ability to perform a crunch squat, complete 20 – 25 reps per set.

  • Single-arm kettlebell lunge

You’ll have to invest in a kettlebell for this one, but it’s worth it. To perform the exercise, hold a kettlebell above your head and position your feet shoulder-width apart. Step back into a lunge position, ensuring that the hand you’re holding the kettlebell with is opposite to the leg that you’re lunging with. Making sure your forward heel is safely on the ground, lower your back knee until it is just above the floor, then pull yourself back up using the same motion. Ensure your posture is kept throughout the exercise. The single-arm kettlebell lunge will help you to build strength in your hips and core.

The above exercises are a suggestion as to what you might include in your gym routines, but no set workout will cover all of your bases – your workout plan should be adapted to your own requirements, and changed when your body gets too comfortable with it. Including exercises that work your whole body will ensure that you start seeing a difference!

Try watching videos of professionals performing these exercises before you incorporate them into your routine so you can be confident you’ll get them right.

A few extra muscle-building tips for every body part:

Make sure you’re stretching your whole body as well as working it! The importance of stretching cannot be overstated, as it safeguards you against unnecessary injuries and helps to keep your muscles strong and flexible.

Stay patient – you won’t see immediate results, and if your goals are particularly ambitious, they may take months, if not years, to reach. Don’t skip workouts when you’re feeling jaded about your progress; muscle building takes time. The end results will be worth it, so keep at it.
