3. One Leg Dumbbell Lift 

One leg dumbbell lift shares almost all the qualities of the traditional dumbbell lift but here, the questions related to body balance can be solved. This exercise is not only easy but works the outer hip and hamstring area more than what the traditional lift does.

4. Pushups

One complete body exercise which the trainers will tell you to carry out from the very beginning. This highly underrated workout helps you tighten the arm muscles i.e. the triceps and biceps which over the years tends to diminish and loosen up. The shoulder blades too are worked out due to this and this can be a major reason why the shoulder pain issues can be solved at later stages of life.

5. Squat To Press

Squat to press is great to work out the body from deep within and helps you gaining muscles from areas that are untouched. This is a full body exercise that targets shoulders all the way to the hip musculature. The weight in this is lesser as compared to squats and moreover, this exercise is easier than performing squats as you do require a little bit of training to get a hang of it whereas this can be done from day 1.

6. Dead Lift 

One with a considerable amount of weights on it. Deadlift is arguable the best full body workout that can be performed by one. It utilizes the leg strength to help the upper body in its movements while the upper back transfers all its power into the arms that actually lift the bar up. Thus, it strengthens both the upper and lower torso and if there is either of them not worked out well, it would be difficult to lift the bar up.

7. Cable Pull

One to achieve a great upper body. Many gyms have lately introduced the cable machines helps you carry out this exercise. This exercise greatly helps in building the shoulder posture, biceps & triceps, upper back and chest region.

With the technique, that eventually gets better with time, this exercise also helps in giving a man good calf muscles and all resolving all the issues that creep up in hamstring & groin areas.
