Men's Workout Routines

Men's Workout Routines
I am going to tell you the all time coolest workout routine for men. It will leave you exhausted and burning calories at a significantly higher rate well after the work out is over. You will be a lean, mean fighting machine in no time. But first, let me tell you how I got to this point.
I had fallen into the same trap that everybody else seems to fall into. I was doing cardio for a certain amount of time and then lifting weights on the machines. 
Besides being very boring, I wasn't seeing any great results. So, I started researching some things.
The first thing I learned is that the more muscle you have the more fat you will burn. This is because muscle weighs more than fat and the body has to work harder throughout the day. However, I also learned that using machines doesn't allow your body the full range of motion that it is designed to have.
 Also there weight lifting exercises are broken into two camps single joint exercises where you focus on a specific muscle like when you do curls for the bicep and multi joint exercises which work multiple muscles at the same time.
These multi joint exercises are far superior to single joint exercises because they cause you to exert such effort that you actually go into a state of metabolic shock and burn calories at a significantly higher rate for days after the workout.
So, without further adieu...
Day 1: Straight legged dead lift, single armed bar bell curls, pull ups, renegade rows 
Day 2: Bench press, squats, dumb bell snatches, clean and jerks 
Day 3: Chin ups, bent over rows, dead lift 
Day 4: Military press, dumb bell swings, lunges, dips

A Workout Routine for Starters - Easy and Enjoyable

A Workout Routine for Starters - Easy and Enjoyable
In conversations I have been asked over and over again, how should I start exercising and which workout routine I should develop? So here are 5 tips how to increase your self-motivation to exercise and how to begin the easy way. When you like most people are pretty much out of shape and you feel a strong resistance to start, this is what you can do.
Start by performing the following deep breathing exercise. Researches have shown, that during exercising most people forget to breath deeply or they are unable to integrate their breathing pattern with the exercises causing them muscle pain and fatigue after the workout. So, in the first week and whenever you like, start breathing deeply. Inhale for 3 seconds, exhale for 3 seconds and start inhaling again after a short while. Take about 5 to 10 breaths as deeply as you can and in a slow pace. During a normal working day our breathing is very flat. The breathing exercise is relaxing and cleans your lungs. While you are breathing you can visualize yourself working out. Important: Use visualizations, which can become reality in the near future. Imagine you enjoy the fitness exercising and the satisfaction as well as the physical feeling you will have after exercising. You may also hear relaxing music while breathing. This way you quickly develop enough motivation to get started.
When you feel ready, do the deep breathing exercise and start by taking a medium fast walk for about 5 to 10 minutes, don't run. You should sweat, but at this stage you shouldn't be out of breath, while exercising. If you haven't trained your muscles for a long time, then this is enough for the beginning. While walking you can say affirmations like:
Every breath gives me new energy.
While breathing (walking) I connect to the messages of my body and mind.
My movements follow my body.
I trust the wisdom of my body and mind.
This way you slowly increase your physical tolerance, you expand your mind and you focus more on exercising. After walking stretch yourself, it relaxes your muscles. You can do this while taking a hot shower it contributes to the relaxation effect. This way you get a good start at fitness exercising and you develop a good workout routine.
After a week you may increase your walking time by 5 minutes every week, provided you feel comfortable doing so. Don't forget to breath before and to stretch after exercising.
Keep a positive attitude towards exercising even if there are weeks when you can't increase your walking time, your body is still progressing by building up the necessary muscle tissue. Researchers came to the conclusion that a slow increase has a longer lasting effect on your overall health, than a quick one.
Moreover it helps to collect friends while working out. You enjoy the exercising more and it substantially increases your motivation. The same goes for tracking your progress. Write down the days you are working out, the amount and the feelings you had while doing so. This way you create an enjoyable workout routine for yourself.
After a while you are in a better mood, get more focused in everyday life and you slowly get in shape.On last important tip don't forget to hydrate while exercising. It maintains the metabolism of your body.

Best Workout Routines to Lose Weight

Best Workout Routines to Lose Weight
Let's face it, we're fat. Our nation is full of people who fall under the 'obese' or even 'morbidly obese' category. Our lives have gotten more hectic so we're exercising less than ever before and our foods have become so highly processed that it's easy to see how one can pack on the weight. If you're ready to reclaim your youthful physique, or even just lose a quick ten pounds, then you should probably incorporate a regular workout routine into your daily life.
The equation for losing weight is a simple one: you must burn off more calories than you eat. Of course, you could do this by starving yourself but then you'd rob your body of essential nutrients, slow your metabolism, and also lose critical muscle mass-and muscles are what burn calories. 
A good safe amount of weight to lose per week is anywhere between a half-pound and a pound. You can do this by cutting out 200 to 500 calories a day.
If losing weight is your goal, the logical answer is to moderately reduce the amount of calories you consume on a daily basis and start a workout routine to help your body burn more calories, which will not only help you lose weight, but it will also-over time-allow you to eat more of the foods you love without, hopefully, gaining weight.
So, are you wondering what workout routines are best to help you lose weight? While strength training is an important-and necessary-part of any workout routine, cardiovascular exercise (or 'cardio') truly is king when it comes to burning calories. And you should aim to get at least 45 minutes of exercise per day, five to six days a week. That's not to say that you need to get 45 minutes in all at once; you can divide it up over the course of a day if that works better for your schedule.
Some of the best calorie burning workout routines you can do revolve around cardio machines like the stairclimber, treadmill, and elliptical. But what if you don't have access to these machines? There's still plenty you can do to get and keep your heart rate in its target zone.
Top calorie burners are karate/tae kwon do, aerobic dancing, bicycling, in-line skating, and running. All of which are things you can do without having a fancy gym membership.
 But in reality-the best exercise routine to lose weight is "the exercise you do." Find something you enjoy-it'll make the process of exercising feel less like a chore and more like fun!
 Not only that, but if you find something you like, you'll be more likely to stick with it in the long run.

Workout Plans - Build Your Own for Weight Loss

Workout Plans - Build Your Own for Weight Loss
You can't just stop one thing or start another for weight loss. Your body is a complex machine and just like you can't expect that '67 GTO to stay in peak running condition stuck in the garage all of the time, you have to get your body out to run every now and then. Finding the right workout plans for weight loss is just as important as finding the right foods to eat. Don't worry, workout plans for weight loss can be so much more than just running- in fact, there are some people who should not even consider running at all!
The first step to building your own workout plans for weight loss is to determine what your exact goals are. Do you want to lose weight and shape up or are you looking to find your inner buff bod? Are you going for tight and toned or fitness model? Once you know what your exact goals are, you can start building your own plans.
Next up: determine what you like to do. Part of the success of workout plans for weight loss is finding the activities that you actually enjoy doing. Don't limit yourself to exercise that you see in gyms or on workout videos. Those are great to start with and if those are fun for you, then fine, but there are other things that you can do as well. Are you aware that with just a little bit of tweaking, you can count your housecleaning and gardening tasks as part of the workout plans for weight loss.
Other tips to include in your workout plans for weight loss: never miss a chance to move. Hide your television remote and get up to change channels or use every commercial as a moment to get up and do squats and lunges. Never park close to the store and never allow yourself to use the drive up window for banking or other tasks. That might serve two purposes because you might rethink that fast food burger if you have to get out of your car and walk inside to get it!
Next step: schedule the time for your exercise. Workout plans for weight loss will only work if you are going to actually workout. If you are going to find a number of excuses and put it off all of the time, then why bother making a plan in the first place? All workout plans for weight loss should include alternate plans for when the weather won't allow you outside or when you just aren't feeling that jog today. Achy shoulders mean you should work on your lower body. Sleepy and tired means that you should use some energizing yoga.

Exercise - Workout Routines

Exercise - Workout Routines
Are you looking for an effective exercise workout routine? Do you want to really burn a lot of calories, slim down and tone up? Well, I'm about to tell you exactly what to do. But, let's take a look at some ineffective exercise workout routines to understand why they don't really work and why what I am about to tell you will.
First, it's important to understand that to lose a single pound of fat requires you to expend 3,500 calories of energy. When you consider that the average person only burns 2,000 in the average 24 hour period you start to get an understanding of exactly how much effort is required to burn just a single pound of fat and, of course, most people could stand to lose more than a pound.
Most people to about trying to get in shape one of two traditional ways. Running or other cardio exercises or sit ups or other stomach exercises. Here is the problem with that. You can't spot reduce fat on your stomach any more than you can spot reduce fat on your chin and, even if you could, sit ups don't expend enough energy to make a difference. Running and cardio exercises expend considerably more energy but you can run a few miles and only burn a few hundred calories. You've still got a long way to go to burn that pound of fat.
Doing compound weight lifting exercises are really the best way to go about slimming down and firming up. Compound exercises work multiple muscle groups at the same time and cause you to exert so much effort that your body goes into a metabolic shock and burns calories at a higher rate for days after.
Do the following routine and you will be ready for the beach in no time. Two sets of each exercise with 1-5 repetitions.
Day 1: Bench press, squats, clean and jerk, dumb bell snatches 
Day 2: Dead lift, chin ups, bent over rows 
Day 3: Lunges, military press, dips, dumb bell swings 
Day 4: Romanian dead lift, pull ups, single armed bar bell curls, renegade rows
