What exercises improve strength?

Any resistance exercise can help improve your strength.  The biggest area to focus on is making sure that the exercise you are completing is being completed correctly.  An incorrect squat can lead to extra stress on your knees and I do not know of anyone who would want to have pain while exercise.  Something I always try to remind my clients of is complete 5 perfect squats as compared to 10 squats with improper form. 

Regarding the exercises that are best to improve strength.  Here are four exercises that will work every muscle group in your body.  Squat, this exercise will help improve strength in your quadriceps, hamstring, glutes, and calves.  Bridging, this exercise will help improve strength in your hamstrings, abdominal muscle, glutes, and calves.  Push-ups, this exercise will help improve your chest strength, shoulders, triceps, biceps, and back.  Pull-up will help build strength in your back, biceps, core and shoulders.  Again, these are just some of the many exercises, have fun!
