- push-ups (core strength, posture, targeted muscles - Pectoralis major, Deltoids, Triceps brachii, Serratus anterior, Abdominal muscles, Coracobrachialis)
- sit-ups (core strength, targeted muscles: Rectus Abdominis, Transverse Abdominis, External and Internal Obliques, Tensor Fasciae Latae, Rectus Femoris)
- dips (chest, triceps, and front shoulders)
- squats (strengthens bones and ligaments, muscles of the thighs, hips and buttocks, quadriceps femoris muscle (vastus lateralis, vastus medialis, vastus intermedius and rectus femoris), hamstrings)
- jumping jacks (relieve stress, improve blood flow, target shoulders, glutes, legs).
physical exercises enhancing or maintaining physical fitness performed to strengthen the muscles, by isolating specific muscles to produce optimal workout results. Help protect joints, muscles, and tendons from strains and tears, prevent osteoporosis (the loss of bone density) and fractures. Strength training can also improve balance and help prevent fat gain, increase the efficiency of oxygen use by muscles, reduce arterial aging, and improve immune function, thus decreasing the risk of early onset of chronic diseases such as arthritis. The disadvantage is potentially disproportionate growth of specific muscles within a muscle group.
Examples of strength exercises are:
