They say muscles make the man. But how does a man get those muscles in the first place without making a fool of himself? Just follow these 8 simple growth principles:
Dumbbell Clean and Press Start off each rep with the weights at your sides and then lifting them to your shoulders. This will help double the amount of time your arm, shoulder, and upper-back muscles spend working, and will build muscles faster.
Barbell Squat The squat is the most important exercise for building mass.
Straight-Leg Deadlift Do this just after squats to give your hamstrings an extra stimulus.

Farmer's Walk This is the best movement is for size and strength. Put half of your body weight in each hand and take some steps, and you’ll definitely be feeling the burn in the morning.
