What kind of exercise tips are you looking for?

Is it to lose weight? To gain weight? To maintain your present weight?

I hope maintaining good health is somewhere in your goals, because that should be your ultimate goal.

The Worst Abs Exercise Ever – Avoid This if You Actually Want Abs

If losing weight is your goal, you want to combine exercise with A Healthy Diet

You don’t need a lot of different and expensive exercise equipment to exercise effectively at home. I have an adjustable set of dumbbells, cables, an exercise ball and a treadmill. Just recently I also added the Perfect Pullup and the Perfect Pushup. That’s it. I do have a regular set of weights, but basically use the dumbbells only. I find them more effective and safer to workout with when you do no have a training partner.

If you are just getting started out, I recommend an exercise ball as your first piece of equipment.

The best exercise tip I can give you is to stick with your exercise routine. It is harder to get started so, once you have overcome this, continue.

Exercise is generally grouped into three types:


Flexibility exercise, such as stretching, improve the range of motion of muscles and joints.
Aerobic exercise, like walking and running, focus on increasing cardiovascular endurance.
Anaerobic exercise, on the order of weight training, functional training or sprinting, increase short-term muscle strength.

A combination of these exercises should be included in a well balanced fitness program.

Aerobic Exercise

should be done 4 – 5 times a week. Generally a minimum of 20 to 30 minutes per session. Once you have base training behind you, consider adding interval training (covered in another section) to make your aerobic exercise more effective.

Strength training

use resistance -to strengthen and condition the musculoskeletal system, improving muscle tone and endurance.

Muscle burns fat So when you build muscle, you burn fat even while you are relaxing.

You should plan on doing your strength training workout a minimum of 2 days a week and, ideally 3 days a week.

Anaerobic Exercise

Anaerobic exercise is exercising at high intensity levels for shorter periods of time. An example would be running 8 all out sprints during your workout, each followed by a period of 30 seconds or more recovery time. Because this is very intense, I only recommend it for anyone who is in top condition and has a doctor’s ok. The bottom line, though, is if you do this, you can slash your workout time and greatly increase your fitness level.

Strength Training

Strength training is important and should not be overlooked. Even if you are looking to lose weight, keep in mind that muscle burns fat. That means you do your strength training routine and continue to burn fat later in the evening. This is one of the keys to developing 6 pack abs.
