What are the best muscle-building exercises?

When you google "muscle building exercises" you get about 16,300,000 hits in less than 0.50 seconds. In my world that's a lot of hits! So how do you find the best exercises if you want to build muscles?

Garber et al (2011) found that there is scientific evidence that in most adults, there are far more benefits from exercise than risks, therefore, there are no excuses not to exercise. But where does that leave you? Especially when it comes to building muscles.

Bodybuilding.com has gathered a great list, with all the best body movement exercises for each body part (Gelger, 2015). The article gives the full picture of each exercise, as it is based on EMG analysis and scientific research. In addition, it includes tips on how and when to do the exercises, and also how many reps to do. Have a look at the exercises - even though you are not planning on becoming the next Arnold Schwarzenegger. Like Garber et al (2011) found, exercise caries a lot of benefits, it's all about finding your own level and your own fitness goals.
