June 16, 2006, Newsletter Issue #229: Best Exercises

Tip of the Week

There are many good weight training exercises, and you will probably experiment with a lot of them and choose your favorites. Still, there are some classic exercises that are generally considered among the best for their muscle groups. The best chest exercise is the bench press, with free weights or machine. The lat pulldown machine is the most popular for upper back, and is a good one. For biceps, it's arm curls, but no one exercise stands out for triceps. Overhead presses are the classic shoulder exercise. For your legs and butt, it's squats or lunges; leg press is the machine. And for abs, do those crunches.
