Exercise With an Ab Workout Routine

Exercise With an Ab Workout Routine
Regardless of your gender or age, to have a flat stomach or even well defined abs would be great.
 For most women, it can be said that they want to look good in their clothes and having a flat stomach can be very important.
 There are many different roads you can go down in order to achieve this, but you will have to do some sort of workout. One of the best approaches that you can adopt, would be to choose and use a good ab workout routine. A routine that will really work your muscles, and give you the desired effect.
There is a right and a wrong way of doing any exercise - you either work your muscles or not! This a common mistake made by most people when working out. In order to get the most out of any exercise, you must concentrate on working the right set of muscles. The same rule should apply to your routine if you want a flat stomach or to develop your abs.
Obviously, you start off at a steady pace and work towards really intensifying your routines. By staying at the same pace, you will not really see any benefits. For example, if you start off by speed walking, then you should move on to something more energetic, like jogging after a week or two.
The best exercise to really work your abs is doing the crunches. Initially, you can start off by doing the simple form of the crunch. When you feel that your confidently working your upper and lower abdominal muscles, you should then progress to doing some of the more complicated crunch exercises.
A way of finding out if you are doing the exercises correctly, is by placing your hand on your abs as you slowly perform the exercise. You should be able to feel your abs muscles being worked. You should then be able to learn how to target those particular muscles, as your go through your abs workout.
 Remembering to avoid these simple mistakes with your own abs workout routine, you will be on the road to working and developing your muscles and achieving what you initially set out to do.

It has been proven that lifting weights is very conducive to fat burning and can help burn calories a LOT faster than just doing plain old cardio.

Deadlifts - 4 x 10
Back squats - 5 x 10
Bench press - 4 x 8
Clean and press or military press - 4 x 10

How To Maximize Your Total Gym Workouts

How To Maximize Your Total Gym Workouts
When planning for your Total Gym workouts schedule, make sure to listen to your body, one could do, you could even manage to do workouts everyday but your body will need a break once in a while. If you have a tight schedule, just make sure that every time you get to work out, it is really intense.
When working out, push yourself to your last limits, take small breaks in between sets, this will be plenty of time for your body to recover.
 For best results, you could decide that once a month you do a Total Gym workout for two days consecutively, then rest for three days and you will see the outcome.
When you get to the gym, make sure you warm up first, walk around the room to get your muscles going, then start with basic pull ups, lay on your stomach with your neck above the bench and then with a reasonable weight perform the pull ups in slow repetitions. Do three sets of these.
Next do bicep curls, get into a seated position and turn over your hands so that you are in a curl position, make sure your shoulders are down and strengthen your wrist, lift the weights up to your shoulder in slow repetition motions, do at least three sets until you feel your muscle burn.
Next you should do the chest press, seat on the bench, grab the weights in such a way that your elbows are close to your chest, and lift the weights up to your chest without locking your elbows, make sure you do two to three sets of these and you are good.
Finally try the incline squat, this workout works most of the lower body muscles and is a good cardio supplement for the week, lie on the bench with your back put your feet on the optional bar and lower yourself so that you bend your knees to about 60 or 90 degrees. Doing these exercises will give you a great work out under an hour.
Circuit training is an efficient way to train multiple muscle groups in a short period of time. It works by performing a series of exercises that typically focus on different muscle groups. 
As you begin your circuit, you'll complete one exercise and then move onto the next exercise with little or no rest in between. By circuit training you'll gain both muscle strength and cardio endurance.

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.

Muscle Building Workout Routine

Muscle Building Workout Routine
The difference a good workout routine can make is astounding. A bad routine may cause you to overwork muscles, which will lead to no gains and maybe injury. A bad routine can go the opposite and ignore different areas of your body. This will lead to an awkward lopsided look, neither of these are things that you want.
The opposite is true about a good routine. A good routine will keep all of your muscles in tip top shape and make you look like you want. A good routine will not overwork you and will give your muscles adequate time to rest. A well planned routine is a general must.
Get a good amount of rest
A good muscle building workout routine will give you the amount of rest your body needs.
 Your body builds muscle not while working out, but while you sleep. This is why working out three times a week can end up being more of a bad idea then a good one.
High weight, Low reps If you want to make fast gains this is the general rule. The high weight and low reps will make your body grow at large rates allowing you to gain the body you want. Once you hit the size you want you can then up the reps and begin to go towards your next goals (whatever they may be).
Hit all muscle groups once You want to hit each muscle group about once a week, a good example of this is this quickly made routine:
Monday : chest, Triceps, quads, glutes
Wednesday : Biceps, forearm, cardio (optional) You can also throw in abs
Friday: Back, shoulders, hams, calves.
Following these steps should lead you to a great muscle building workout routine, remember you must work to gain it!

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.
