Exercises That Build Muscle Without Bulk

Many of us have been at that place where we have desired to look lean and well-built but have failed our dreams only because we knew that we are not in the position to devote the time needed to get that body. Pushing a metal machine with your tender hands might not be your cup of tea but that slender sculpted body can surely be. Yes, building your muscle is possible without spending those long hours at a gym. In a way, it is even quite necessary for the body to boost the metabolism and develop the bones. So here is a list of exercises that you can follow religiously to get the body of your dreams.

Monkey push
Working on your arms, shoulders and abdomen, this exercise will definitely let you feel the crunch. In a simple way, this exercise requires you to move away from a regular push up position and jump forward to align your hands and feet together in one line.

One leg raise
This exercise particularly works your core, shoulders, biceps, triceps, back, hamstrings and glutes. You will need to stand with face down bending your body forward with weights in your hands and raise one leg behind so that your body is in line with your leg.

Arm and leg lift
This exercise strengthens your upper body, lower body, biceps, triceps, shoulders, upper and lower back as well as the glutes. You will need to sit with your knees and hands on the floor and with every count raise your alternative leg and arm to stretch on the front and back.

Triceps down and up
Strengthening your upper body, shoulder and triceps, this exercise requires you to lift yourself from plank position to mountain position, pushing your hips back and coming back to the same position.

Twisting knee plank
Work your upper body, lower body, arms, shoulders and butt with this exercise.

The exercise starts with a plank position. From there turn your lower body alone once to the right and then to the left and return back to the center position. Repeat after holding your position for 1 second.

Kneeling glute toner
This exercise works your glutes, hamstrings, inner and outer thighs and abdomen. Sitting in a kneeling position, lift and push one leg behind you and raise the toes when you reach the maximum potential. Repeat with the other leg.
