These mass building exercises include dead lifts, bench presses and squats. This type of exercise will help you develop your bulk and strength as well as condition your body. For best results, include these exercises in each day's workout. When working to build muscle, make sure you are consuming plenty of protein. Protein is essentially what constitutes muscles. It will be difficult for your body to increase its muscle mass if you are not consuming enough protein in your diet. You should try to eat lean proteins at least 4 times, but preferably five times each day.
