When it comes to building strength in the gym, most guys tend to think about the main 4 powerlifting movements: squats, bench press, deadlift, and overhead press. Being able to move lots of weight safely and efficiently in these movements means you're strong, but that doesn't mean other exercises aren't vital for strength gains, too. These other exercises are called "assistance lifts" or "accessory exercises". Click and watch the video below for my thoughts and demonstration of a few of these.
