General Exercise Chart


You’ve seen 101 posts suggesting you utilize these movement to make your workouts and that the “perfect” full body lift will steal from components of all of these.

While there are many accessories to parallel these that will more specifically isolate smaller muscle groups. For our main bread and butter and “bang for your Buck” movements this chart here will help you select movements that make the most sense for each of these categories.

You’ll also notice that many movement patterns can be broken down into horizontal and vertical variations as well! Try to spread these across the week of multiple workouts (I.e. bench one day and shoulder press another)!

If you’re looking for a tool to help you pair these movement patterns in your week and workout by workout, as well as over 200+ exercise with video examples checkout my ebook TRAIN. With all the simply explained science to help you FINALLY understand how to build your own workouts in a no nonsense way. With a template that comes with it that helps you do this in 2, 3 or 4 lifts per week. We pick the movement pattern and weekly split for you — you pick the exercise you do!

TRAIN is always available on my website or through my b!o 🏋🏼‍♀️💪🏻
