You need exercises because they do more than just give you bigger biceps, massive chest and killer abs. Here are six of the most basic exercises a trainer wants you to do.

    Push-up is one of those exercises that should be a part of every exercise plan owing to enormous health benefits. The move strengthens muscles of the entire upper body, and more so of the chest, shoulders, and triceps. You may prefer to do treadmill and lat pull downs, but this one is trainer’s favourite exercises.

    Lunges mimic running mechanics. The move requires one to use leg strength with total body control. Lunges help sculpt quads besides boosting your endurance considerably when done on a regular basis.

    An upper body exercise, pull-up is performed with a palm facing forward position. To fight the fat, 3 sets of 10 pull-ups are as good as 30-minute treadmill activity. Decreasing the time between sets makes the move more effective.
