squat, deadlift, military press and bench press.
the most important exercise is lifting the fork to your mouth!
Make sure ur cals are clean and high and do these compound movements.
Can't go wrong.
best of luck zinger!

Tony little's ab-roller followed up with John Basedowe's 8 minute abs. C'mon man, haven't you seen the commercials?! They're J-A-C-K-E-D

Thanks for the replys guys...
Jayhawk, I knew someone would react the way you did, but in my defense I was curious what the board people thought. Aren't we all about communication?

Its hard to say for compound movements but in term of target muscle activation look up EMG results of muscle activation.

For me....here it is:
biceps - barbell curls
triceps - weighted dips
forearms - shrugs (ya gotta grip the DB's) or chinups (no straps) As you can tell, I don't work forearms by themselves and mine are coming along nicely.
neck - I don't work my neck
back - Deadlift
shoulders - military press (DB or BB)
legs - squats
Just my .02 cents worth

Squats, leg curls, calf raises, bicep curls, triceps ext, dips, pull-ups, back rows, deadlifts, bench press, incline press, upright rows, shoulder press and crunches.
I don't work my neck because that a red zone for injury. Seen and heard too many guys complaining about neck problems. I figure the routines I mention above will add size to the neck. I think the mass building routine I mention will add plenty of size to the entire body. I have been working with the routine about for four weeks now and Iím quickly returning back to my size and built. I give it another three to four weeks for me and I will be back busting out of my muscle shirts. The routine I mention above will work on anyone but you must increase the weights and push that extra rep.
Oh yea, you must use FREE WEIGHTS. You might can play around with the Hammer equipment but don't try using the other machines to add size. The other machines are great for beginners and practicing the movements but adding size is best done with FREE WEIGHTS.
You also will need to look at your diet and make sure everything is in place. Don't be afraid to drink water while you working out because I see too many guys that don't drink water while working out. They feel it will help them loose weight some how. Iím still trying to figure that out.

LEGS: :squat: I would have to say Squats. Its easy to keep increasing weight. Just make sure you have proper positioning and movement.
Personally I like to have really good neck/shoulder protection while doing Squats.

where is this routine you talk about??? Also, i am probably wrong when i talk about neck...i mean between the shoulders and neck, that look.
