You state that you need to work all of your major muscle groups. What are the areas considered to be major muscle groups?

The major muscle groups, listed by body area, are the back, chest, shoulders, triceps (back of upper arm), biceps (front of upper arm), abdominals, buttocks, and legs. The back is a large area and exercisers must make sure all areas of the back are exercised. The lower back is many times forgotten or neglected. The legs include both the front (quadriceps) and the back (hamstrings) of the upper leg. Most people participating in a general fitness program do not need direct calf or forearm work unless they want to do it.
