Exercises that give complete body workout

Most of us have question which exercise will provide the complete body workout if we don't want to join gym, Endless number of exercises are available that will make you confuse as everyone know basics but not sure which exercises are the best ones for a full-body workout?

So in this article we will discuss top 3 exercises which are more effective and provides complete body workout. 

  • Push-Ups
  • Pull Ups
  • Squats
Now the first question that will hit your mind i.e.  why only these exercises why not others, so lets understand why these exercises are preferred  and how these exercises provide complete body workout.

1: Push-Ups

Pushups are one of the basic and most common exercises for the human body. Push ups are not only great for your chest, but do a tremendous job of defining your abs, triceps, shoulders and torso.

You can do this exercise any where no matter where you are and it's one of the best workout exercise. The benefits of this exercise are numerous. Push ups will improve muscular endurance within the upper body, strengthen both muscles and bones, create lean muscle mass that raises your metabolism and, of course, help keep you fit and healthy. 


If you're just looking to develop a great chest, arms and shoulders, then you can opt this exercise and start doing this exercise from very basic level, if you are new to this exercise or  unable to perform 3-4  push-ups then don't worry, we suggest you to start from one, if you do one correctly that's more than enough, slowly slowly increase your body endurance and you will perform better and better day by day but most important thing is you need to be motivated and keep on putting effort.

How to do push-ups and what variation can be done to get better results will discuss in another article.

2: Pull-Ups

Pull ups are one of the most convenient exercises around. You can do this exercise pretty much anywhere. All you need is a bar and your body.

The pull-up builds grip strength in its entirety because the fingers, hands and forearms are all used. Pull-ups also develop the biceps, triceps and shoulders, giving you powerful strength and superior muscularity. Muscles throughout the entire back are bombarded with enough stress to make them grow stronger, especially the latissimus dorsi and trapezius. Additionally, your abdominal muscles are given a good workout due to the stabilization needed through the entire core.

Pull-ups is my favorite exercise , In Pull-ups exercise upper-body compound movement  works along with a number of larger muscle groups at the same time (back, shoulders, & arms). Some people feels this exercise is the toughest exercise, then you are right this is one of the toughest exercise but as we know nothing is impossible , if you try with full dedication , i can bet that soon you will be master in this exercise. For my case it took two weeks to do one single pull -up properly. but i kept on trying and after two months i was able to do minimum of 15 in one set.

This exercise helps in developing V-taper , if you are want to develop V-taper then this exercise is must.

3: Squats

Squatting strengthens the overall body, even though it's categorized as a "leg day" exercise. The movement engages your shoulders, back, and especially your abs, developing a nice solid core and back.  

This exercise helps in developing building muscles trough-out your body, even though you are working primarily on your leg muscles, squats also promote muscle growth around your entire body. The exercise is so intense that it creates an anabolic environment and makes the body release hormones, that are vital for the growth of muscle tissue; squats improve strength of your upper and lower body.


One of the most time-efficient ways to burn more calories is actually to gain more muscle! For every pound of additional muscle you gain, your body will burn an additional 50-70 calories per day. So, if you gain 10 pounds of muscle, you will automatically burn 500-700 more calories per day than you did before.

So don't skip this exercise or you can say include "leg- day" in your work-out plan as this exercise has lot many benefits that can't be ignored. 

I hope this helps  and cleared all your doubts why these exercises are important, we will discuss about each exercise in details in our upcoming articles.
