5 Best Exercises for Men (ACCORDING TO WOMEN!)

    In a recent online poll, women were asked to name their top 5 most desired
    muscle groups on a man. The problem is, knowing what is wanted without
    knowing how to get it is not going to help you. So, we put together this video
    of the 5 best exercises for men to help develop the muscles most wanted by

    Obviously, not everyone watching this will care about impressing other women.
    Whether it be other men they want to look good for, or simply just want to look
    good for themselves, this is sure to help.

    With that said, here’s the countdown of the 5 most desired muscle groups (as
    reported by women in an online poll) and the best exercises for men to do for
    each one.

    5. Shoulders

    Wider shoulders help to create the V-taper and improve the appearance of a man
    even when wearing a shirt. There is no better exercise for building the medial deltoid
    than the side dumbbell raise. Lower the weight slightly and perform these in 1 1/2 rep
    style to accentuate the contraction of the delt and build your shoulders faster.

    4. Biceps

    Having impressive biceps sticking out of your shirt sleeves signifies that you are serious
    about your body. The barbell curl is a great way to build up your biceps, however I show
    you a slight cheat to add as well that will help you to add more size. Be careful not to
    overdo the cheat however as you don’t want to take away all of the benefits of the exercise.

    3. Chest

    Of course the chest was going to be on this poll right? In order to build your pecs, you’ll want
    to perform a version of the bench press. The underhand grip bench press is great because it
    activates the upper fibers of the chest even more than an incline bench press does while allowing
    you to perform the exercise in a better, safer shoulder position. For those that have shoulder discomfort with the regular bench press, this has an added benefit.

    2. Abs

    No doubt a killer set of six pack abs is high on the list. To best get them, include a hanging ab exercise to intensify your ab training. Incorporate rotation into the move so you can additionally hit the obliques. Sharpening the obliques helps to visually improve the tapering of your waist, even if you tend to have a blockier waist. The hanging clock exercise is perfect for all of these reasons.

    1. Glutes

    As somewhat of a surprise number one, the glutes are tops on the list of muscles women would like to see their men develop. As always with leg training, you want to train athletically. The sprinter lunge is a perfect opportunity to kill two birds with one stone. Leaning forward at the waist ignites the glutes and posterior chain much more than the quads.

    For a complete athletic physique, you’re going to want to be sure you train and eat like an athlete. You can get a complete blueprint to both by heading to http://athleanx.com and getting the ATHLEAN-X Training System.

                      As a straight male, I think back muscles are the most attractive looking muscle after the abs/obliques. Very surprised it wasn't on the list.

                              Asa Black what a nasty lil’ turd you are! Loving someone, fancying someone doesn’t make _anyone_ sick, perverted or disgusting . You however have a very nasty attitude to what other people enjoy and that makes *you* a much worse individual.

                                            There is indeed one exercise that will deal with all of your problems with attracting women. It is an exercise of the forearm.

                                                You make great videos but can you make some videos for women that want to make gains (even though I know I can still do the same exercises you show). Or maybe recommend a channel with good advice for women. I am petite but have been steadily making gains over the last year 💪
