There is a lot of information on the internet and almost infinite ways of working out your body. If you are new to this, discovering which exercises to do can be a time-consuming job. Well, not anymore.

If you already are familiar with gym life, this list can also help you remember the importance of these classic and necessary exercises. Do these, or some form of variation of them, to see your body get bigger.
Watch the 7 Exercises You Need For Mass
The 7 exercises you need for mass are:
Squats, deadlifts and lunges will focus a lot on your lower body, but can also build up your back muscles.
Bench presses are the king exercise to build a bigger chest, and the same can be said about the overhead press to build stronger shoulders.
Coach Alain Gonzalez ends the video with 2 bonus exercises for biceps and mid delts. Barbell or dumbbell curl should be done if you are looking to increase even further your biceps, and lateral raises (preferably with a cable machine) will do the job for your mid delts.
Most of these exercises should be done at least twice a week, two sets, between 6 and 12 reps.
