6 All Around Exercise Choices

Aug 21, 2008
Of course, everybody wants to be shapely like most Hollywood stars. It doesn't take a genius to be able to achieve such a dream. It takes discipline and consistency.

In realizing a healthy body, one must carry on a program that combines cardiovascular, strength and resistance trainings together. You don't merely aim attention on pure cardio, say treadmill run or aerobic session. Every workout session commences with warming up and culminates with cooling down.

But wait, halt for a moment and ask yourself this: Can my body sustain the strenuousness of high impact workout routines? Try these steps below so you can say yes and prepare your muscle groups for more intense routines.

1.Back Exercises. In strengthening your back, you can do the stiff arm pull downs which targets both arms and back. You can also do the seated lat rowing wherein the broad triangular muscles of your back are strengthened. Another choice is the shoulder blade retraction routine that aims largely on training your shoulders.

2.Leg Exercises. You can strengthen your leg in many ways. One is doing leg curls as you lie flat on the floor. Another is leg kickback usually executed in aerobic sessions. Other choices are ankle inverting, hip flexing and abducing, and seated calf lift.

3.Chest Exercises. To broaden and firm your chest, you can do bench press. It's the most popular among men and women. Another routine is the incline bench which still utilizes a bench and a pair of dumbbells to achieve results. You can also execute shoulder pullovers as you lie flat on an exercise mat.

4.Abdominal Exercises. There are many ways to tighten your abs and eliminate those flabby parts. One is by doing 100 crunches in varying positions. You can also use a stick that you can hold on to as you tilt your upper body to the sides, back and front. Make 100 counts of this if you prefer it better than crunches. Or you can also integrate both.

5.Arm Exercises. To develop muscles on your arms will take a while. To add strength to your arms, you can try the triceps curl using dumbbells or the basic pushups for 3 sets of 8 counts. Other choices of routines are wrist curl on either seated or standing position, triceps kickback, biceps curl, French push and biceps-triceps combined curl.

6.Shoulder Exercises. Putting a barbell on your shoulder may be a good choice of routine but you'll have to be careful on how much weight to carry on. Also, you can do the rotator cuff and back deltoid row, basic shoulder raise, shoulder rotation, and shoulder shrug.

All your body muscles are to be firmed up and strengthened to be able to carry on any high impact workout routine. You should be able to work on your back, legs, chest, abdomen, arms and shoulders.
