Build Muscle in Short Times

I was having a conversation with my friend the other day and he asked me about the exercises that would build the most muscle. I usually tell people about the exercises that I use to build my arm muscles first, then tell them about the exercise to build my chest. I tell them that I tend to use exercises that are super basic and basic in nature. That way, I know I’m on the right track. I want to get people fired up to perform the compound exercises that will build the most muscle.

Let’s face it, there are a lot of big guys that perform these exercises. Why? Because they are basic and super effective. I decided to put together a few basic exercises that you can use to build your upper body, so let’s get to it!

Bench Press

This is a true test of upper body strength, and a real eye catcher. You can do this one with dumbbells or barbells. Do this exercise with the barbells at 45 degrees and do 2 sets of 6 reps.

Chin Ups

This is a basic exercise and works the muscles in your chest, shoulders, upper back, and traps. In order to do this you will want to lay flat on your back on the floor and put your hands behind your head. You will then raise your body up and bring your hands back towards your body. Once you have brought your hands back towards your body, bring your body down and lower your body down until your arms are perpendicular to the floor. Once you reach the bottom, hold your position for a second, and then raise your body back up and do 2 sets of 6 reps.


This is a super basic exercise. You will be lying on the floor with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Then you will use your legs to push your body back until your thighs are parallel to the ground. Now you will hold your position for a second and then lower your body down and do 2 sets of 6 reps.

If you perform these exercises consistently you should start to get results. Keep in mind that if your muscles are exhausted, you will not get any results. You can get results by performing the exercises until you’re muscles are exhausted and then move onto the next exercise. This is how to build muscle in short time frames.
