8 Best Barbell Exercises Ever (SURPRISE!)

Build a ripped athletic body training at home or the gym

Barbells are definitely one of the best form of workout equipment due to their ability to help you load up the heavy weights and build serious muscle. The confidence gained when using barbells also carries over to your entire workout since nothing makes you feel stronger than adding another plate to the bar. That said, choosing the best barbell exercises ever can be quite a challenge since there are so many to choose from. In this video, I picked the 8 best exercises with barbells and give you a reason why each has earned its spot in your next workout.

To begin, lets take a look at the best barbell exercises. They are:

Barbell Curls
Hip Thrusters
Barbell Dead Rows
Barbell Incline Bench Press
Landmine Thrusters
Core Barbell Rollouts

Each of these exercises require either just a single barbell and some weight plates. They were chosen given their ability to work multiple muscle groups at once, fitting into any workout. The more muscles you can train in one workout the quicker your training session will be and the more impact you can have on your body in a shorter period of time.

Barbell only workouts can be incredibly challenging. In fact, some people think that you should limit your workouts to include just a few barbell exercises at one time given how physically draining they can be. That said, I wouldn’t recommend running out and trying to perform each of these in a single workout. You will want to work each of these demonstrated barbell exercises into its appropriate workout to avoid overtraining or haphazard training.

Some people say that performing barbell chest workouts and barbell back and arm workouts is not as effective as using dumbbells. They argue that the dumbbells allow you to overcome any one sided imbalances or weaknesses. While this may be one advantage of dumbbells, it doesn’t sacrifice the quality or effectiveness of the training session. That said, you cannot lift light barbells and think that you are going to get a great enough workout. Even if you are training at home, aim to lift the heaviest barbells that you can lift if you want to build muscle in your workouts.

Even if you don’t have barbells because you don’t train at a gym, you can still train like an athlete. If you are looking for a complete workout program that uses just a few dumbbells, a bench, a pullup bar and a resistance band then head to http://athleanx.com and get the ATHLEAN-X Training System. By using equipment like dumbbells or barbells in your workouts, you’re training your body to move and look like an athlete.
