Workout Plan For Beginners

Workout Plan For Beginners
What kind of program you start with depends on your specific goals. This article will help you shed some light on myth that there is no perfect method in fitness. For example if you want to lose weight, running or cardio might not be the best thing. So let's start with understanding fitness in general.
Cardio for Weight loss?
If your goal is weight loss, then spending 1 hr on treadmill or running early in the morning(before breakfast) might give you OK results but it also has lot of drawbacks.
 In these kind of workouts you burn out your muscles as well as fat. In reality, fat is the last thing you'll burn in any workouts. You'll be burning glycogen stored in your body first and then muscles...
You see every pound of muscle you have will burn 50 calories a day. If you burn these muscles, your metabolism will slow down. You'll lose weight, no doubt about that but you'll also lose very important muscles.
Building body or strength?
If you check out with your local gym, there is very good chance that your coach or instructor in the gym will make you do High number of reps (around 15-20) every set. According to them this build body and strength and what not... Again this is OK but would you like to get access to better way of building strength & body?
Here's better way : If you use low reps with more sets (3 reps X 6 Sets) with heavy weights, not only you are making your muscles stronger but also you'll be shaping them.
A Beginners Workout plan
From my experience I had great results with strength training and working with cardio (High intensity training). Beginners on this workout gain strength in leaps and bounds and make great progress.
 If you check out most of the programs I have shared, you'll see I use many types of workouts which includes free weights, bodyweight calisthenics, odd objects like sandbag and other equipments like kettlebell. I always believe in "the chain is as stronger as its weakest link".
You workout every weakness of yours. You find out where your weakness likes and improve it. Not only gym rats who either work on their chest or biceps daily basis but forgets about the big gut hanging in front of them.

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.

Athlete Workout Routines

Athlete Workout Routines
Everybody automatically thinks that just because you're an athlete that life is easy as pie, but most people have to clue the amount of sacrifices they make in order to succeed. Most athletes spend their whole lives staying in peak condition to excel in their sport and to do this they have to workout just about every day.
 The way they train in their athlete's workouts is going to be by far the most critical ingredient to their success. Even if you're not looking to become a professional athlete anytime soon, it's going to be important to study how an athlete works outs so you can take what works and apply it to your own workouts.
Most professional athletes workout until they're about to throw up, but that doesn't mean you have to. It's important to see how much you enjoy your workouts because if you drive yourself to the point that you hate your workouts, you're not going to want to keep doing them.
 I wouldn't recommend copying and pasting an athlete's workout routine because it's customized for them and not for you. Be sure consider your own strength and stamina levels before you create your own workouts so you can keep progressing, but you won't drive yourself to the point where you hate training.
You'll never find a professional athlete who works out only every so often. In fact, most athletes train just about every day of the week. Staying consistent with your workouts is going to be one of the hardest parts of training like an athlete. After the initial motivation wears off, most people will completely fall off their training program and they'll be nowhere in sight until they get to the point where they're disgusted with their body. Find an accountability program such as a training partner or even an online workout forum so you can stay inspired to keep doing your athlete workouts.
Many athletes also fall into the realm of overtraining and they start to do more damage than good in their workouts. You have to make sure you're getting in enough resources into your body such as fluids and healthy calories so you keep up with your intense workout schedule.
 You'll also have to make sure that you get enough rest in between workouts by not working out too often for you body to handle and by getting at least 7-8 hours of sleep every night. Overtraining can quickly lead to injuries and plateauing in your workout program.
Be sure to keep these things in mind the next time you're doing an athlete's workout routine so you keep getting the results you're looking for and not the one's you don't want. 
Also be aware that just about every athlete out there has their own fitness trainer to help them succeed more. A trainer who can motivate and coach you to push your limits is an invaluable resource in getting in the best shape of your life.

Personal Training Programmes For Your Fitness Needs

Personal Training Programmes For Your Fitness Needs
Personal training programmes are a wonderful way to stay in shape. The programmes meet your personal needs, and you see the results you want. Instead of just going to the gym or grabbing weights around your home, invest some time in finding perfect personal training programmes.
Training programmes are for everyone. Whether you are an athlete, bodybuilder, or beginner, you can enjoy a customized programme to get in shape. After you decide if you want a workout regime for general fitness, toning, mass, strength, or power, you can reach your goals no matter what your experience level.
Workout regimes benefit you in several ways. To start, the programme has your specific needs in mind. If you just want to tone your upper body, the programme does just that. Another great benefit is that workout regimes are creatable for any frequency you desire. If you just want to workout 2 days a week, the program meets those needs. The programmes are also very specific. There is no question about how much weight, how often or what technique you need to use. There is also a clear picture of how long you need to continue your training programmes to see your results.
