My previous post explained the benefits of muscle mass. In this one, let us discuss the various muscle groups in the body and strategies to help muscle gain.

Knowing the major muscle groups and the weight lifting exercises that work each of these basic muscle groups is very important to improving your body. Building a balanced body can prevent injuries, improve your looks and posture and strength.



The main function of the muscular system is movement. Muscles are the only tissue in the body that have the ability to contract and therefore move the other parts of the body. Muscles often contract to hold the body still or in a particular position rather than to cause movement. Muscles are responsible for the body’s posture and they hold up the body throughout the day without becoming tired.

If you want to look your best and feel your best, you should work on all eleven muscle groups in the body:

1. Quadriceps
2. Hamstrings
3. Calves
4. Chest
5. Back
6. Shoulders
7. Triceps
8. Biceps
9. Forearms
10. Trapezius
11. Abdominals
