( Most workouts that we do focus on losing weight or getting lean but it rarely focus on building our muscle strength. As a fitness enthusiast we should aim at building all three simultaneously and this is the real key to be healthy and fit. Majority of fitness freaks only focus on certain part of their body and think if they have lost weight and become lean their objective is achieved which is not right. What matters the most is whether you have developed strength or not. If muscle strength is something that you are looking for than you should give these 10 exercises and then feel the difference between a normal workout and cross fit workout.

  1. Dead lift

Dead lift is simply a great exercise to work on your core muscles of your body where you train your body to withstand heavy weight. This exercise focuses movement which involves balancing your body weight while targeting muscles in the upper and lower body and help improve your grip strength.

  1. Barbell Thruster

This exercise is designed to strengthen your upper and lower body. Since you use weights in this exercise it boosts your metabolism and improves your cardiovascular strength.

  1. Pull-Ups, Push-Ups and Air Squats

You have to do these entire three exercises one after another and without taking any break. The faster you do these three exercises one after another it helps in improving your body’s overall strength.

  1. Wall Ball

In this exercise you do a squat a couple of meters away from a wall and then throw a ball to the wall, catch it standing up and then go back to the squat position.
