Hello everyone! This week I’m going to explain why squats, deadlifts, and barbell rows are important for muscle building, as well as fat loss.
These exercises work more then one muscle at one time. For example, barbell rows work the rhomboids, rear deltoids as well as the biceps. When you are doing barbell rows, the more bent over you are at 90 degrees will work your lower back. When you come up to about 45 degrees, this will work your upper back. Squats work your quadriceps, hamstrings, glutes, and lower back. Deadlifts work your hamstrings, quadriceps, inner thighs, rhomboids and traps. This is where the afterburn effect comes into play like I talked about in my previous blog. Since these exercises work more then one muscle at once, In return this breaks down and builds more muscle overall. This will also help you loose weight because your body is working twice as hard to repair the muscles, As opposed to just going into the gym and just hitting one muscle a day.
