It may sound strange to some, but in fact, you can build muscle mass at home.

If your schedule is full, and you can't find time to visit the gym for a proper workout, you're at the right place. In this article, I'll show you which are the greatest bodyweight exercises with which you can build muscle mass at home.

The only bad side of performing only these bodyweight exercises is that you won't be able to target some specific muscle groups. But the bright side is that most of these exercises are compound. ( targeting multiple muscle groups with a single movement).

These are the best Exercises to Build Muscle Mass at Home

#1. Push-Ups

This is a great pushing exercise which can be used as weightless bench-press.

It targets multiple muscle groups including the chest muscles ( pectorals ), shoulders ( deltoids ), back of your arms ( triceps ), abs, the wing muscles directly under your armpit.

 


#2. Pull-Ups

The pull-ups are working similar muscles as the barbell curls, but I would say it's way better.

Muscles involved in this movement are biceps, traps, forearm, rhomboid, teres major, pecs, erector spinae, and external oblique.

 


#3. Squat

Squats are one of the best exercises for your lower body you can do, even if you're not using weights.

If your lower body lacks development you're in luck because the squat targets your quads, hamstrings, outer thighs, glutes, and core.

 


#4. Crunch

The abdominal crunch is definitely the highest rated abs exercise on my list.

This exercise will strengthen your core, improve posture, but also it will increase the flexibility and mobility of the muscles.

If performed regularly, you'll start noticing that your abs are getting tighter and more visible.

 


#5. Lunges

Here's another important lower body exercise that you must perform.

Some of the targeted muscles are your hips, glutes, quadriceps, hamstrings, and butt.

Your back, calves, and abs are acting as stabilizers in this particular movement. Which later-on brins development to them too.
