The 4 Most Useful Exercises You Will Ever Need

What’s the best exercise that works the entire body? It’s one of the first questions people ask when they meet their personal trainers. This question is one of the most difficult to answer.ppppppppppppppppFirst, you won’t get the results you want from any exercise unless your diet and sleep habits are in check, but further, an accurate answer really depends on four things:

 

1. What do you really need?
2. What’s your goal?
3. What kind of training experience do you have?
4. What kind of equipment do you have access to?

The bottom line: As much as it would be more efficient to say that there IS one exercise that works the entire body, it would be misleading. There are a myriad of great exercises, and the best ones for you depend on your answers to the four questions above. What you’ll find in this post is that this is what personal trainers all over the US have considered to be the top four big-bang-for-your-buck movement patterns and how you can add them to your routine.

1. Kettlebell or Dumbbell Deadlifts

How to do it: Grab a kettlebell or dumbbell with both hands and hold it at arms length in front of hips. Bend at hips and knees to lower the weight to the floor. Without allowing lower back to round, pull torso back and up, thrust hips forward, and stand up with the kettlebell or dumbbell. Squeeze glutes as you perform the movement.
