Sam Sulek continues to draw in fanfare for his jacked physique despite being 21 years old. In a recent TikTok, Sulek named and explained the only 10 exercises he would use for a lifetime for muscle growth.
Over the last year, Sam Sulek’s fame and popularity have exploded, courtesy of his impressive physique and controversial dieting options. As of late, fans have been taken aback by the influencer’s self-proclaimed ‘trash diet’, which is made up of Krispie Kreme donuts, cereal, and other sugar-dense foods.
While some bodybuilders like Nick Walker believe he could be sending the wrong message to younger fans, others such as five-time reigning Classic Physique Olympia champion Chris Bumstead, believe that he’s the future and only helping the sport’s growth.
Sam Sulek Reveals The Exercises He’d Keep If He could Only Do 10
Aside from cardio and bulking tips, Sam Sulek takes it upon himself to offer advice and information on YouTube, In his latest venture online, the buff bodybuilder opened up on the only 10 exercises he would use for building muscle.
- Incline Bench Press
- Lateral Raises
- Reverse Lateral Raises
- Cable Rows
- Seated Hamstring Curl
- Leg Extensions
- Dumbbell Curls
- Straight Bar Pushdowns
- For Cardio Bike
“Chest, I mean incline bench. Then shoulders, lateral raises, of course, side delts. Reverse lateral raises, rear delts. Back, I’d say just normal pull-downs then cable rows. I feel like you could have a pretty solid workout with just those two” Sulek said.
Already happy with the few selections he has made, Sulek continued thinking about each part of the body, ensuring he had a movement to target them all.
“Legs, seated hamstring curl, leg extensions. Arms, I’d say just normal dumbbell curls, straight bar pushdowns.”
Struggling to think of the last exercise, Sulek explains that he doesn’t work on his abs and instead opts for the cardio bike.
“I don’t train abs right now because it’s just not that important to me, I didn’t realize it was that controversial.
I would add the cardio bike, I can guarantee 99% of you guys aren’t utilizing that piece of equipment but I say if I had those ten I’d still be pretty freaky.”
Sulek isn’t the only bodybuilder to offer 10 exercises for muscle growth. In recent months, Chris Bumstead and Phil Heath have followed the trend with their own preferred movements. Chris Bumstead’s included simple methods like squats and pull-ups as well as lateral raises to hit the delts.
Phil Heath incorporated lateral raises in his top ten but got a little more technical with movements like bent-over underhand barbell rows. Part of his strategy was using ropes for face pulls and triceps extensions to get a well-rounded workout.
Sam Sulek continues to impress the fitness community with his freakish physique and unconventional way of putting on mass. While he hasn’t attempted to compete professionally, fans are waiting to see what Sulek attempts next in his bodybuilding journey.
