1. Exercises for Building Lean Muscle : Dead lifts
No other exercise even comes close to inflicting as much stress on your body as this one. Dead lifts make your back thicker, your lower body stronger and your gains immense, but they also strengthen your core and make you more suited for other heavy lift exercises like squats. If you want to get the best effect from Dead lifts, keep the set moving after every rep – no need to drop the bar down after each lift. This will keep your intensity higher throughout your set, and when you get to the top of the movement, lock out your back muscles to engage them completely. No other exercise compares to the way Dead lifts build your posterior chain.
