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.
Day four: The bench press work the chest and triceps like the dips did on day two. Squats work the same muscles the lunges did through a different motion. Clean and jerks work virtually everything just as dumb bell snatches and will really leave you winded!

Workout Routines To Build Muscle

Workout Routines To Build Muscle
One question that some people ask themselves as they go about their workout routines to build muscle is where cardio fits into the picture. Should cardio be performed on a workout routine to build muscle or is it better off saved to a time when you want to work towards losing fat?
Many people get confused over this as they hear others saying that on a workout routine to build muscle, cardio is only going to burn up precious lean muscle tissue and take you further away from muscle growth.
What's the real story behind this? Should you do cardio training?
Let's take a look at a few of the factors to consider about whether you should add cardio training in as part of your workout routines to build muscle.

Your Recovery Rates
The first thing that you'll want to think about with this is how good of a recovery rate you have. If you're someone who isn't recovering all that well between their muscle building workout sessions, then you really shouldn't go adding additional exercise that will really tax the body.

On the other hand though, if recovery has never been an issue for you, then if you do want to add a few cardio workouts to your workout week, you may have no problem with this.
You really must assess this on a case by case basis because everyone will be slightly different in how well they recover.

Your Primary Goals
Moving on, also take a look at what your primary muscle growth goals are. Do you just want to build muscle? Or do you want to improve sports performance?

If you're someone who is concerned with performance or is also worried about overall health maintenance, then adding some cardio will likely be necessary. This is especially the case if you do play sports such as hockey, soccer, or football where a great deal of cardiovascular work is involved.
By keeping up with modest amounts of cardio you'll make sure you don't get too out of shape while doing your workout routines to build muscle that you're gasping for air when you play your sports.
Your Body Type
Third, think about the body type you have. If you're a classic ectomorph - that is, someone who is very skinny naturally, cardio is definitely going to move you away from your goal. You'll likely find you do lose muscle mass if you perform cardio training so you'll really want to keep it limited to just a few walks here and there.
If you're someone who tends to gain body fat easily then cardio training while doing your workout routines to build muscle could potentially help you stay leaner and be a good idea.

The Cardio Form
Finally, think about the form of cardio in question. In order to experience good muscle building you'll want to keep cardio on the more moderate side of things as high intensity cardio will definitely put a lot of stress on the body.
When you combine this with your heavy weight lifting workouts, you will without a doubt start to notice that you aren't able to recover and that you just don't see the growth you'd like.

Muscles To Workout - And Passion

Muscles To Workout - And Passion
Using your muscles to workout isn't just a matter of strength. It's a matter of creativity and passion. Your strength will get you through your workouts, but the creativity and passion that spawn persistence will get you to your workouts.Let me explain this better with an example, scenario 1:

So you're heading to the gym, and you are ready for a good workout. You're ready to use your muscles to workout and build some muscle.
I mean you're really motivated. You got your favorite song playing in the background, the adrenaline is pumping, and you feel like Arnold Schwarzenegger (if you're a girl, you feel like Jamie Eason) as you walk in.And then you hop on the elliptical, you know, to "warm-up".
You look up, and you see the news on TV. But because you read my stuff, you look at another television, except it's the news, on a different station. So you say what the hell and indulge.
You're losing motivation. They're talking about oil spills, change, taxes, and the depression.
You start wondering why they haven't fixed the issues, and getting angry, now instead of adrenaline, you're pumping out cortisol (don't get too into the relationship). You're telling yourself you should be president.Now you decide to start the workout. As you walk toward the weights, you see that person you haven't seen in like 23 HOURS. So of course you have a 10 minute conversation, and decide it's time for a water-break.
By this time your iPod is at a quarter battery and you're stressing about that, and your not excited about your workouts because you've been doing the same one for 3 years.
You get that same workout in. And walk out the doors.Still Feel Like Arnold?
The saddest part about it all is that you feel un-satisfied. You feel like that's not what working out should be like. Well you're damn right.
Different scenario.
You might want to pull up another tab and play a good song while you read, it'll add to the momentum.So you're heading to the gym, and you are ready for a good workout. You're ready to use your muscles to workout and build some muscle.
I mean you're really motivated. You got your favorite song playing in the background, the adrenaline is pumping, and you feel like Arnold Schwarzenegger as you walk in.
You grab some water, and put you're anthem on the Ipod.
Side note: An "anthem" is that go-to song that will get you motivated regardless what happened before the gym, and regardless of what might happen after.
You take a look at the elliptical, and do something revolutionary. You walk right by. Instead, you decide you're going to warm-up with some some body-weight work.
You're warmed up. And then you decide to play the wild-card and drop that 3 year workout plan you've been doing. You have too much energy for it. You need something new.
So you wing it. And what happens? You get the best workout of your life. You work with the weights and do the exercises that come to mind as you go. You're pushing big weights, and not only that, but you're having fun. Of course the work is hard, but minute by minute of work leads to achievement.
You take a quick water-break and as you're walking back to the weights you take a glance at the news on the TV. WORLD PEACE. There are no problems, and it's heaven-on-earth. You say to yourself, damn that president is doing good.You finish up your workout with good music, and a feeling of self-worth. You put up more weight then you hoped for, and you feel refreshed. You walk out of the gym satisfied. Maybe even more then that.What was the difference between the two workouts?All I see is passion. A lot of people walk into the gym with passion and energy flowing, and then prescribe themselves to the same workout everyone else is doing. Well Im telling you that's not how it has to be.
Your workout should not be boring. I actually think that's dangerous. If you're not interested in your workout, how do you expect to practice good form and not lose attention?You need to find a workout that you're passionate about, and a workout that will allow you to set new personal records.And yes I am also saying that being passionate about your workout could result in world peace and heaven-on-earth.From now on, no more BS workouts. You might have a bad workout every once in a while, but don't lose that passion.

Brief Tips To Help You Get Slim With Workout Routines

Brief Tips To Help You Get Slim With Workout Routines
When you want to slim down and achieve that physique that you have always wanted you will need to focus on eating the right foods and developing a correct meal plan that will be conducive to losing weight efficiently. Aside from this, however, you also need to focus on suitable workout routines in order to supercharge your fat burning efforts.
Both muscle building routines and cardiovascular routines need to be focused on. If you are not looking to build significant muscle, simply developing a little bit of lean muscle will still help you to achieve better results. Essentially, the more lean muscle you have, the easier it is to burn off fat.
When looking to lose weight, however, your main focus will certainly be on cardiovascular exercise. This will help you to develop a high metabolism which will, in turn, lead to better fat burning results.
When developing a suitable schedule you need to focus on exercises that you will actually enjoy. Many people find that when they start off exercising they struggle to engage with the exercises that they are doing and simply do not enjoy them. As such, consider different movements that you may enjoy and try to incorporate these into your routine.
You need to focus on setting specific times of the day to exercise as well. This will be extremely important in developing habits and in preventing you from making excuses and skipping exercise sessions. If you can, try to exercise when you first get up and before you have breakfast at least three or four times each week.
High-intensity interval training is probably the best way of burning fat quickly. Not only will this supercharge your metabolism, but your metabolism will also be working overtime after you have ended your exercise, and you can complete the entire session in a short time span as well.
