Defining Your Workout Goals

If you have decided that you want to build muscle and reshape your body you will need to implement a workout regime that will help you gain muscles.

Choosing a workout plan is all about knowing what you want.

Either way you will have to work each muscle group separately and at different times in order to maximize the benefits to the muscles and encourage the greatest growth. Here a few workout tips sure to get you started on the right path.

Get a Wash-board Stomach: Arguably the most complained-about body part among those looking to improve their appearance is the abdominal area. To achieve this, you must both Plan Your Workouts To Get Fitter Betterstrengthen the abdominal muscles and burn the fat that is layered over these muscles. Effective exercises to get your abs shrinking include planks, in which you support your body in a push-up position on your elbows, making sure you are a straight line from shoulder to hip, for periods of 30-90 seconds or more depending on your shape. Basic crunches can be very effective if done correctly, meaning they are performed using your ab muscles and not your neck. Adding weights increases the intensity and really build muscle. By adding a twist to the side at the peak of the crunch works those stubborn obliques.

Be Your Own Back Up: A strong back isn't just attractive, it helps keep your entire body healthy. Building these muscles means controlled, precise movements that train the specific muscle groups that make up the entire back. One such exercise is dumbbell rows. Holding a hand weight and supporting yourself with one knee on a bench, lean over and pull the weight from right above the floor up to your side by bending your elbow. Be sure to contract the back muscles a little harder at the peak of the rep and hold for a beat. Another exercise is aptly called the "Superman". Lying on your belly with your ankles together and your arms stretched above your head, arch your back and lift your arms and legs off the ground. Hold and slowly lower. Make sure your reps are controlled, using your back muscles instead of just flinging yourself into the position with your legs and arms. This exercise can be used without weights for beginners.

Be Able to Hold the World on Your Shoulders: A strong, powerful appearance can be completely destroyed if your shoulders are narrow or weak. Even if the rest of your body is well-developed, skimpy shoulders have a negative connotation. In order to build the muscles of your shoulders, you will probably rely on free weights rather than machinery. Using loaded bars, perform standing presses, bringing the weight from the ground to chest height and then turning your grip to press the weight up toward the ceiling. A variation is to press the weight from the shoulders up and then back to the shoulders.
