So you want to look aesthetically better and fitter, but don’t want to (or don’t have time to) spend hours in a gym? Fear not, as these are the only 7 exercises you need to shape up your body.
To look better can mean different things to different people. Men and women usually have different visions of what aesthetically good-looking means. What matters is how you want to look without wasting long hours in the gym or overthinking which exercise to do.
In the list below we have separated the best exercises for aesthetics, regardless of your background. It is suitable for beginners (we even added some other options in case the prescribed exercise is too difficult for you), advanced athletes, and everything in between.
The beauty of these exercises is that you can push to your own limit. If you want bigger muscles, then increase the weight or difficulty of the exercise. If you want a leaner physique, increase the reps, but lower the weight.
We have separated the list into seven categories, starting from the top of the body. They are:
We have also divided each category to bring you the best, most complete, exercise with equipment – we also have included a no-equipment option for each of the 7 categories above. That way, if you find yourself travelling, not able to go to a gym, or simply don’t have the equipment at home, you can still hit that muscle group and work towards your goal.
Most of these exercises will be compound movements so that you will hit more muscles doing only one exercise. That way it will further increase your gains in the least amount of time.
