Finding the Best Workout For Your Body

in Training

In today's society, the modern lifestyle leaves little room for proper diet and exercise. Everyone wants the quick fix solution for their weight and there are many other reasons why people want to get fit and build muscle. Maybe to improve their health, appearance, or get in shape for a competition and while it may not be easy for some, with a little hard work and discipline it's possible to get results. There are a variety of ways to get the best muscle building exercises and the main workout regimens used today are periodization and high intensity training.

The best muscle building exercises are those that challenge your body so you can reach your goals. Squats, leg presses, lunges, leg curls are the best muscle building exercises for your legs while curls, extensions, bench presses, and shoulder presses are the best muscle building exercises for your arm, chest, and shoulders. Let's not forget your core, which is the most important (and hardest) muscle group to build and tone. Some of the best muscle building exercises for your core are crunches, shrugs, rows, and deadlifts.

There are a number of ways to take those exercises and create a workout regimen for yourself. High intensity training involves going to the gym a few times a week for an hour or an hour and a half of intense, short exercises. These workouts are always strong and push yourself to the limit, increasing the weight and repetitions as you improve your strength and endurance. An advantage of this training is that you will get results much faster than other methods. Periodization training provide more time for your body to recover and get used to the workouts. Periodization breaks itself up into three parts, light training, medium training, and heavy training. This gradually builds your muscle over time. The advantage of this training is that your body will never get used to the workout since the intensity levels are always changing.

Working out is the easiest thing you can get into the habit of doing. Besides just working out, there are a lot of lifestyle changes that need to be done in order to meet your fitness goals. Whatever the reason for this change in lifestyle, just remember to challenge your body and maintain your health by eating a proper diet and making sure you get enough sleep. These things will help you feel better and help your body recover from the training.
