Workout Routines Using No Weight

Workout Routines Using No Weight
If your goal is lose weight, then you need to perform high intensity workouts. This is what burns calories and boosts your metabolic rate, not steady state cardio. Increasing your metabolic rate, or the rate at which your body burns calories, is absolutely crucial in for sustainable fat loss.
I want to give you a simple template you can use to develop some workout routines without weights. 
First, you need to choose your exercises. There are dozens of body weight exercises to choose from. But the main important thing is to make sure that these exercises challenge you.
Next step is to organize these movements into a workout. My favorite form of training is circuit training. Circuit training is where you perform four or more exercises back to back with little to no rest in between each set.
 Instead of choosing repetitions, I like to perform each exercise for 30-40 seconds, then move straight onto the next movement.
High intensity circuit training keeps my heart rate up, and thus makes my body work harder. The target heart rate zone is a complete myth and useless piece of information. 
If you want to raise your metabolic rate, you need to force your body to work harder.
There are two main ways to make your body work harder using body weight training. The first way is to choose challenging movements, as I mentioned earlier.
 Push ups, pull ups, and squats no longer challenge me, so I use unique and challenging exercises such as ellipse and one leg squats

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

Spice Up Your Workout Routine

Spice Up Your Workout Routine
How many times have you started a workout routine that only lasted for a week? It is a common occurrence for both the health buffs and those who take casual work out.
 There's really no one to blame, because it is the body getting bored of your regular work out regimen, what it needs is just a little spicing up. Here are the different techniques to spice up your workout routine.
Do three instead of one
Instead of spending the whole of your 30 minutes on the thread mill, have 3 different sets of exercises, with or without equipments, and spend 10 minutes on each of them. This will excite your brain, and it will be a great way to come up with the same effects in a lesser amount of time.
Juggling two exercises together
This is usually called supersetting, and involves picking two opposing muscle group work out and doing both of them at an interval. It may be bicep curl and a triceps extension. This will get your body going and it will bring results in a faster time.
Repetition makeover
Add another set to your repetition scheme, instead of still doing 1 set of 15 reps. You can cut down the reps and add some more weight to further your progression. Having a thorough weight program does not only involve weight changes, it also involves repetitions, and rest time.
Do cardio while your in between
You can jump onto the treadmill and walk or jog for the minute in between while you are still waiting for your next set. This will help you burn more calories and pumps good amount of air to your system. This also will not heighten up your body for the next exercise.
Pick programs at random.
For the ease of starting-up, some gym buffs tend to choose the manual programs forgetting many other options to choose from. Pick the programs at random, as there are a lot pre-selected options available on gym equipments. In the end, you will give your heart and lungs the exercise that they need and burn calories at the same time.
Exercise change
A proper program needs adjustments every 4-6 weeks. The workout regimen that you have selected will bore your muscles out, as it goes up to this length of time. The key is to challenge your muscles any way that you can, so that your progress will not come into a halt. Consult your trainer on what are the new movements that you can incorporate to your workouts.
The body getting bored in the progress of a work out program is no longer new to the fitness world. There is really no need to kick the tire just yet, incorporate these simple steps to spice up your workout routine and you will not notice your program coming to an end. You will be able to enjoy your routine and see them as challenges to take on and not stay away from.
