Power Bodybuilding Workouts

Power bodybuilding is a combination of training for muscle mass and 
shape along with strength & power which gives you the complete 

Back in the good old days of bodybuilding, muscle mass, aesthetics, 
shape, symmetry and general balance were the hallmarks of a great 
physique. Not only that but many bodybuilders also took part in 
either Olympic weight lifting or powerlifting, so they were as strong
as they looked.

To gain strength throughout your physique it is imperative that all 
muscle groups are trained to the fullest extent with a wide 
selection of exercises. We are only as strong as our weakest link, 
it is the so-called smaller exercises that can help to strengthen 
us for the multi-joint compound movements that ultimately create
real power and size gains.

If you include exercises that are low on effectiveness and/or those
that are potentially dangerous it will not only waste time but also
could compromise recovery abilities and interrupt progress. Below 
is a list of the most effective exercises and their corresponding 
muscle groupings.

For best results in size, strength, and balanced development it is 
strongly recommended that you choose two mass builders and two 
isolation movements per body part for each training session (the 
exceptions being arms due to the smaller size of these muscles - 
and, as a result, the greater their need for recovery - two mass 
builders and one isolation movement are usually best).

For best results, choose two mass building exercises and two 
isolation movements.

    Front Squats
    Hack Squats

Triceps Mass Building Compound Movements
    Lying Triceps Extensions
    Straight Bar Pushdowns
    Bench Dips 

Isolation Movements for triceps

Biceps And Forearms Mass Building Compound Movements

    Incline Dumbbell Curl

Isolation Movements for biceps

However, given the importance of exercise selection and training the
individual muscles from all angles, many still encounter problems in
choosing the right exercises to use. The key here is to pick several 
exercises for each body part that target the muscles as a whole and 
from different angles, but not to waste time and energy on those 
that are least effective toward both of these aims.

Train the compound movements heavy for low reps to build strength and
do the isolation movements lighter with high reps to get a massive
muscle building pump.
