Fat Loss Kettlebell Workout Routines

Fat Loss Kettlebell Workout Routines
Kettlebells can be used for several purposes, but here I will present various kettlebell workout routines which are extremely effective for fat loss. One of the primary factors to making an exercise session burn a lot of fat is to bring the heart rate and breathing rate up. Breathing heavily, while not very fun at that moment, is important to burn off fat since the fatty acids inside the blood stream have to be oxidized; thus oxygen usage is extremely important. A lot of heavy breathing leads to a good deal of oxygen being drawn in throughout the workout, and that is exactly what will burn a good deal of fat.
Fat loss kettlebell workout routines don't need to be complicated; there are many straight forward set-ups which can be positively ferocious to complete. For instance:
Fat Loss Workout #1
10 kettlebell swings, 1 push-up, 10 swings, 2 push-ups,... , 10 swings, 10 push-ups
Details
Bear in mind these swings can be done with one bell or two, and if using two, perform the push-ups while gripping the handles of the kettlebells. Executing push-ups that way (with neutral wrist position) is usually easier on the wrists, elbows, and shoulders.
Minimum rest ought to be taken at all times, ideally going through all the reps without resting in any way. For individuals who are less mathematically-inclined, that's 100 swings and 55 push-ups, completed in (if possible) less than 15 minutes. That's a great deal of work in addition to a great way to get rid of some body fat.
Although it's unquestionably vital to keep moving during a fat loss kettlebell workout in order to attain the best results, additionally it is imperative that exercises are chosen intelligently. Using an exercise that forces the body to keep moving isn't sufficient: it should present enough of a challenge so the workout acts as an effective strength stimulus simultaneously. A younger and in-shape fitness enthusiast would probably be breathing hard after a set of swings and 12" box step-ups, but will those step-ups pose a decent strength challenge? Probably not. Even though they would keep the person working and breathing more heavily than usual, they wouldn't do much to build additional strength.
Therefore, for the swing and push-up workout earlier on, adding weight for the push-up is advised if the person can complete the entire workout without too much effort.
Swings, being as powerful as they are, ought to be incorporated into just about any fat loss kettlebell workout. It's almost impossible to do "too many" of them, so there's no harm incorporating them since they do such a good job of getting the heart rate up.
Here's another great kettlebell fat loss workout containing swings and push-ups:
Fat Loss Workout #2
Swings for 20 seconds, 5 push-ups, 30 seconds rest. Repeat for 15 minutes.
If after that workout the push-ups remain easy, consider adding weight or reps next time.
Here are two additional powerful fat loss kettlebell combinations:
Fat Loss Workout #3
Using 2 kettlebells:
10 swings, walk 30 steps, 10 goblet squats, walk 30 steps
10 swings, walk 30 steps, 9 goblet squats, walk 30 steps
Continue down to 1 goblet squat.
Fat Loss Workout #4
Using 1 or 2 kettlebells. Start at the top of the minute.
5 swings, 1 push-up, rest the remainder of the minute.
10 swings, 2 push-ups, rest remainder of the minute.
5 swings, 3 push-ups, rest remainder of the minute.
10... , 4... , rest
5... , 5... , rest
The entire way up to 10 swings and 10 push-ups.
For this one, rotating between sets of 5 and 10 swings will provide a small bit of additional rest. Go ahead and make all sets of swings 10 once successfully completing the workout above.
Give these fat loss kettlebell workouts a shot! While including correct nutrition and strength training, they will likely provide all the additional fat burning anybody would need.

Winning Workout Routines For Toning - 7 Tips

Winning Workout Routines For Toning - 7 Tips
The reasons people choose to commit to a workout routine are many. Typically, men and women are interested in one of the following:
* building up their muscles to look bigger, buffer and stronger 
* slimming down for improved health and attractiveness 
* improving their core body strength for better overall health and resistance to injury 
* toning their body to attain that healthy glow
Of course, each of these goals calls for a different type of workout routine. If you are looking for a winning workout routines for toning, follow these 7 tips:
1. For free weight lifting, focus on repetition, not heavy weights:
Train with free weights as part of your muscle-toning routine. But how much weight should you be lifting? For bodybuilders looking to win a muscle competition or kick sand into the face of nerds at the beach with impunity, lifting very heavy weights should be the goal. That's because heavy weights build mass. However, because toning is your goal, you should be using lighter weights with high repetition.
2. Strengthen your abs with isometrics:
For an all-around more toned look, you need to really hit your abs hard. You should be working on your abs at least 3-4 times per week. Of course, sit-ups are a great start. And, if you have access to a gym, ab machines and leg extensions can also help you build your abs. However, these exercises can also be hard on your spine. For a safe, effective alternative, try isometric exercises. Isometrics simply means resistance training without actually moving your body. Isometrics can increase strength and tone without building significant muscle mass.
3. Blast your obliques:
If you ask people, "What makes someone look great in a bathing suit," usually "great abs" is the first response you get. But, it is easy to ignore the effect that great obliques (the muscles to the left and right of your abs) can have on your overall look. Firm obliques can actually make your abs look better. And, as a bonus, they can actually protect your spine from injury and stabilize your body. So, how do you get great obliques? Isometrics (see above) can help you here, too.
4. Employ compound exercises:
Your winning workout routine for toning should also include a generous dose of compound exercises. These are simply any exercises that include 2 or more joint movements. Compound exercises help with toning because they involve more muscles at once and therefore build more muscle mass. Examples of compound exercises include the squat, dead lift, chin ups, dips, bench press, barbell press, and lunges.
5. Remember to train your lower body:
You may not know it, but 60-70% of your musculature is in your lower body. While it may feel more important to focus mainly on your upper body during your workouts, focusing on your lower half helps contributes to your whole body's muscle mass gain - and therefore your toning process. When you work your lower body, you produce more muscle growth hormone, which will help you look more tone all over.
6. If have lost more than 50 pounds, you may want to condition your skin.People who have lost a lot of weight in a short period of time may notice their skin does not look at tight as it used to. While your workouts will help focus your muscles into a tighter, better-defined shape - they will not help your skin regain its youthful look. The answer? Try a skin toning solution from your favorite cosmetics provider. Over time, this can help complete the toned look you are going for.
7. Make the right food choices:
Don't neglect your food choices when putting together your winning toning workout. You won't make nearly as much headway by following super-intense workout schedule if meanwhile you are eating junk food or just playing it "business as usual" in terms of your eating habits. Take the time to put together the right eating regime by talking to a nutritionist first - and then following their advice. Just this step alone will contribute heavily toward that tone body you are looking for.

Workout Routines For Seniors

Workout Routines For Seniors
Seniors are finally getting involved in the health movement! Move it or lose it! What is the best workout routine for senior citizens? And why should seniors workout? We will explore more on this topic during this article.
Did you know that there are some health insurance companies that will actually pay for your gym membership. 
When this was implemented several years ago, the insurance companies saved around 1.6 billion dollars in health care in the first two years! Senior citizens were getting into the gym, and getting fit and healthy!
Of course, if you have read any of my other articles, you know that I am a big advocate of weight lifting. And yes, this goes for you too, seniors. Lifting weights can really help with osteoporosis. If you don't believe me, ask your doctor. Your doctor will tell you.
 I have some clients that have come to me because their doctor has told them that they have to get a personal trainer. My hope for everyone and their health is that they get into the gym BEFORE their doctor tells them that they have to do it.
 Once you are at a place where your doctor tells you that you HAVE to lose weight, or you have to get a personal trainer, this can mean that your health is at stake. This always makes my heart just drop, because I know for many people, that a lot of their health problems could have been prevented if they had just lead a healthy lifestyle and gotten into the gym.
So, don't be one of those people. Get in to the gym now. Also, for most seniors, it's about getting back your mobility, your range of motion, and a bit of strength and energy. 
Yes, I recommend lifting weights, but, don't go in and just start throwing weights around. 
Get yourself at least a month of sessions with a personal trainer. Many injuries can be prevented by just knowing where to place your hands or your feet during certain exercises.
