Looking to get big? Strong? Muscular? Who isn't? Lots of people buy into these lame programs on tv that don't do shit. No Pushups will not make you big! No, you do not need to do 100 exercises a day! It's all very simple. You need to work your body as unit. Your body is built as a unit and likes to be trained as one. That means no doing isolation exercises until you are advanced. Any new weightlifters should be focusing on the following lifts: Squats, Bench Press and Deadlift, as well as Power Clean and Press. By doing these exercises you work your body as a unit in a functional, natural way. You also incorporate much more muscle groups than any machine or isolation exercise ever could. Also you are able to lift the most amount of weight, which will stimulate the most amount of growtth and hormones released. I have been lifting for almost 10 months now and recently got Mark Rippetoes book Starting Strength for my birthday after hearing about it non-stop on bodybuilding.com. Great book. It goes into all the biomechanics of every major lift and how the body works and responds to the lift and will teach you the proper form to gain the most muscle and strength. It's $30 on amazon and I would high recommend it. The $30 for the book is worth way more than any supplement or video can teach you.
