Having big and well diffrentiated muscles gives a man extra confidence and surely acts as a boost for his looks. People with well shaped body are admired by both the genders and for a good reason i would say. However ,this does not mean that a lean frame is not attractive,but having that extra bit will surely have an edge over others. Here are some of the exercises which proves as a real test of strength for the people training in the gym.


If you can pull up own body weight against the force of gravity, that is a true test of your upper body strength. It is a combination of grip strength, forearms, lats and back muscles which helps you pull your own body weight. Majority of gym goers struggle to complete 10 consecutive pull ups. No wonder this is a must do for people who go to the gym.

Benching is a true test of your upper body pushing strength. It requires explosive power from your pectoral muscles, triceps, deltoids and is a combination of speed and technique.

Deadlift is a true man’s test of pulling strength. It is an old school irreplaceable movement which requires progressive overload, consistent training, right technique to master the move. Advanced dead lifters dedicate years of training to lift heavy. As with other exercise, technique and form are very essential to master in the beginning to prevent yourself from lower back injury.
