The ones you like are often not the ones that yield any significant results.
Do 70-85% max 3 sets 8-12 reps
Try explosive movements:
Squat, dead lift, power cleans, military press, bench press(incline, flat, decline whatever), pull ups....
There are a lot of exercises and infinite variations on them. The real trick is to DO THEM and do them CONSISTENTLY.
At least 2x's per week mixed with plyometrics, endurance training, sparring, etc.
Have fun, or not, just do them.

And I'll add in and say if you do them, STICK TO THEM. Doing 8 reps of benching then moving on wont yield many results as sticking with it and doing 3+ sets of 8. Its a mistake I made and now that I sit down and focus on 1 exercise for 10 mins it works you harder and you know that because the next day (if its something youre not used to) youll be sore.

My advice: focus on your form, do compound exercises, and lift heavy. This is a great way to get strong.

Do something like Rippetoes for a starter program, good for putting on a good base of strength in a relatively short time.

Here's a really good program to use as well, it's called Westside for Skinny Bastards and it's an awesome program by DeFranco:

this thread has helped me actually
iv stopped training as regular as i used to but after christmas joinin a gym and ill go about 3 sumtmes 4 times a week

Usually ill do sumthing like Chest + triceps and do 3 sets of 12 or 10 on chest, dumbell press, then do like pyramid set on bench pressing usually i only go up 3 weights, ill go on to flys then 3 sets of 10
Tricep ill go on the wire machine that tricep pull down exercise ill do 4 sets of 12 and ill do w,e after that like my abbs

i move on to my shoulders bicep and lats then the next day or wen eva i go again
but im finding that these curls im doing dont give me the results i want mainly my fault because my biggest problem is i dont stick to me exercises BUT i want to bulk up my body without loosing any speed or sharpness in my movement if that makes any sense?? i dont want big heavy hands i wont fast striking ones but with a decent amount of muscle mass (if im making sense)

im also looking for a new gym routine for wen i start training after christmas, im mainly lookin for overall body power mainly in my shoulders triceps for a more power swing on my punch (i work on my punch bag and have pads aswell for accuracy)

i hear cleans press is the best exercise for power? and pull ups are great but i wont sum power training that are good for muscle building aswell like focused curls (if u understand me)

anyone got a small list they will to post up? iv read that list above but are there any more good exercises??
and btw whats a dead lift??

thnks
