When trying to bulk up, use bench pressing, squatting and dead lifting. These three types of exercises can assist you with getting in shape fast and build muscle quickly. Although you can perform other exercises in your routine, these should be the ones you focus on. One deterrent of successful muscle-building can be slow-growing muscle groups. Doing a "fill set" can help to avoid this problem. A small set that uses the muscle group necessary two to three days after another group was worked will do the trick.
