Best Workout Routine For Everyone
Have you ever wanted to get in a good workout but just couldn't come up with the right workout routine. Sometimes you have all the time in the world to do a workout and other times you have no time but all the desire in the world.
It is difficult in this day and age to find the time to get in a workout, but harder yet to get the best workout possible. Do you lift weights or do a cardiovascular workout? Should you do upper body weight lifting or lower body? Yoga? Etc.... I find that a good circuit training routine that gets the heart pumping with a goodmuscle burn will provide you with the best of both worlds.
The first thing to think about for the best workout would be to know your time frame and understand that you have a finite period of time to do the workout. In that time frame you need to focus on your workout and nothing else. Try not to watch TV or read a book during your workout. This will only distract you from focusing on your workout routine. The following workout will only take about 30 minutes to perform but should provide you with a workout that will be very taxing.
To get started do a quick warm up routine to get the blood flowing to the muscles. Then do a good stretching routine to prepare your muscles for the workout, especially your back and hamstrings. Now it is time to workout. I prefer to do the big compound muscle movements first so your other muscles will have to work harder when you single them out for their respective exercise. For example, doing push-ups utilizes not only the chest but also the biceps and triceps. Therefore, once you do push-ups and move onto the bicep and tricep workout your biceps and triceps will have to work harder because they have already done a set and will be tired.
This is the workout that I recommend and in the following order of exercises.
Chin Ups or dumbbell rowes
Front and Side Shoulder Raises
All of the exercises are maximum reps and you should start with the first exercise and work your way down the list without a break between sets until the end. Then take a minute or two break and get some water and repeat at least two more times.
After the workout don't forget to drink a protein shake as that will help repair the muscles and allow them to heal so they can adapt and grow. When the muscles grow they burn extra calories so treat them well by feeding them well.
If you do this workout at least three times per week you will understand why this is the best workout routine ever. It is a fast paced routine that will provide a cardiovascular benefit and you will be toning muscles in the process. Happy workouts!!
