Exercise Workout Routines

Exercise Workout Routines
I've put together what I think is one of the best exercise workout routines I've ever done for building muscle and burning fat.
The reason this is so good is because it works your entire body from different angles and different levels of intensity each day. It's much better than doing cardio exercises because it throws your body into a metabolic shock so that you are burning more calories at a higher rate for days after the workout. It will only take about a half hour, however, you will be exhausted afterward.
To build dense lean muscle mass I only do two sets of each exercise with no more than five repetitions in each set. Use weights that are about 80% of the maximum weight you can lift.
Because it is a four day routine you have some flexibility in the schedule. You can miss a day and just add it the next day.
Day one: Dead lift, chin ups, bent over rows. This will work your hamstrings, calves, lower back, forearms, traps, lats and biceps.
Day two: Lunges, military press, dips, dumb bell swings. The lunges work the leg muscles that the dead lift missed, the glutes and the quads. The military press will work your shoulders. Dips will work your pecs and triceps and the dumb bell swings will work your shoulders and your abs.
The other thing that all of these exercises do is to work your core which is your back and ab muscles so that you will end up looking like a Greek statue!
Day three: Romanian or straight legged dead lift to work your calves and lower back from different angles and at a different level of intensity. Pull ups will work your lats and biceps and shoulders but, again, from different angles. I also do single armed bar bell curls which will really work your forearms as well because they must maintain balance. Renegade rows will work your shoulders and really work your abs.



Fitness Workout Routine - Lean, Toned, and Strong

Fitness Workout Routine - Lean, Toned, and Strong
Most people want the kind of fitness workout routine that is going to give them the perfect beach body; lean with a little muscle in all the right places and of course, a great set of abs. Most of us are not looking to become muscle-bound behemoths. 
The good news is that it really is next to impossible to become accidentally muscle-bound. Those bodybuilders that seek to get huge devote every minute of their life to the task, so don't think it will just happen by accident. The idea that trying to get stronger will make you massive is just dead wrong. In fact, getting stronger is one of the best ways to get that lean, sleek look.
For years now there have been a lot of misconceptions about strength training. For example, many women are encouraged by so-called fitness trainers not to squat with weights as it will give you a "huge butt". In my twenty-some-odd years of experience I have noticed the opposite. Those women who squat tend to have very tight and shapely glutes. Even more incredible may be the observation that the stronger the women were, the perkier their bum looked. So go ahead and ignore squatting with weights, but do so to your own detriment.
An added benefit of squatting is that it actually gives you abdominals a great workout. You want beach-worthy abs. Make sure you include squats in your routine.

Likewise, many people avoid chin ups. It seems to be an exercise only a muscle-head would need to do. It's no coincidence that chins ups are very hard to do. Often times the avoidance of these hard exercises are rationalized away by claiming they are for gym rats or bodybuilders. If you go to a gym or just joined one try to notice those who chin up regularly. They tend to be fitter people. Hard work gets the best results so it only makes sense that the hard exercises will get you the most dramatic results.
Deadlifts, kettlebells, standing overhead barbell presses, dips, and nearly any conceivable difficult exercise is often avoided by the majority of people. But these exercises are the ones that are going to give you the beach body you want. Aim to get strong in all these difficult lifts and you will be amazed at how you can transform your body into the body you have always wanted.
The only caution, besides checking with your doctor beforehand, is to find either sensible fitness trainers, online guides, or instructional manuals that will help you to perfect the form of each of these lifts. Form is paramount - screw it up and you won't get any results besides likely injuring yourself.
Start with light weights and perfect your form. Don't work to failure. Stop 2 or 3 repetitions before you think your muscles would actually give out. That way you can concentrate on having perfect form on every rep. Pretty soon you'll be able to handle heavier weights safely as you start looking better and better.













The Best Ab Workout Routines to Get Great Abs

The Best Ab Workout Routines to Get Great Abs
There are many people on the lookout for the best ab workout routines. Why? This is because the most popular body part that people would commonly be willing to make an improvement is the tummy. A fabulous tummy is the greatest desire of health-conscious people for their bodies to achieve. 
If you intend to have the abs of your dreams, and before you begin a routine to achieve it, you must first evaluate the different workout routines available and then decide which one is appropriate for your body form and requirements.
Crunches
With this form of workout, you might want to use a mat. To begin, lie down with your back either on an exercise mat or the floor. Your feet must be firmly pressed to the floor with your knees raised. With both hands behind the head, gradually lift your head. Make sure that you do not pull your neck doing this. 
Simultaneously, crunch the stomach muscles. This must be sustained for a few seconds before you release and slowly return to your former position. Do several repetitions of the exercise until you become used to it. The objective is to for you to perform three sets containing thirty repetitions.
Knee Ups
For you to do this, sit on a bench with both hands grasping the sides. While in this position, legs should be extended outward and then slowly pull the knees up towards the chest. With this movement, you can feel your stomach muscles begin to contract. Maintain that position for a few seconds and then repeat. Like the crunches, this has to be a smooth and steady movement. The objective is to finish three sets composed of at least twenty-five repetitions.
Knee Raises
A little bit more advanced routine compared to the other two, knee raises also have a higher level of difficulty but they yields good results. This exercise requires the use of an overhead chin up bar. Your grasp of the bar must be a bit wider than your shoulder width. Then, without another unnecessary movement like swinging, slowly raise the knees to an angle of 90 degrees. 
You could feel your abs contract with the movement. Hold for a couple of seconds then slowly go back to your original position. Repeat. Like the other routines, this must be completed with a smooth and steady movement. The objective is to finish three sets with at least 15 repetitions in each. This can also be done without curling your knees, just standing straight and holding onto the bar.















All Natural Bodybuilding Workout Routine

All Natural Bodybuilding Workout Routine
Most people refuse to believe that it is possible to build muscles using all natural bodybuilding programs. This is why bodybuilding has had such a bad reputation especially because of the famous bodybuilders who use steroids.
All natural bodybuilding simply means the use of natural methods to build body muscles i.e. with no use of any muscle enhancers or anabolic substances. Real athletes use methods by following a routine that features well structured bodybuilding diets and natural performance enhancing supplements.
Tracking progress in natural body building is important. Any bodybuilder should clearly outline his or her targets or goals so that it could be easier to access progress. If you don't have well defined goals, then your chances of success will be very slim.
Take some time to learn as much as possible about bodybuilding in order to be able to "custom build" your body in a way that suites you best. Learn as much as you can about natural supplements, training and dieting. Don't give up half way through - this process is about serious commitment.
One of the best way to stay in the game for longer is to start by establishing clear reasons why you want to use an all natural program. The truth is, when it comes to a sport such as bodybuilding you are either doing it naturally or not.
 This is an especially important point when considering professional bodybuilding. Remember that in competitions, you are not permitted to use any unnatural supplements. The reason is simple, if others were to use steroids, then it would defeat the whole purpose of the sport - it would simply be unfair to those choosing to go the natural route.
It may look difficult at first especially for beginners but it is possible to use methods that are natural for building body muscle. Anyone, including you, can build them and be successful as a bodybuilder by simply designing specific and highly effective diet and bodybuilding workout routines. All in all, using natural ways is the best way to build muscles - it's not just for making you feeling confident and looking great but it is a sure way to stay healthy.
