What is in a typical men's workout and is mens fitness such a specific area of exercise and fitness that we have talk about it this way (see womens fitness for the alternative view)?
There are various elements that need to be combined in men's workouts to combine, but whatever your preferred form of exercise, you should be looking to find something that meets your needs.
Any men's workout should fit your lifestyle and help you to achieve your goals. That means it needs to be fun, effective, and time efficient.
The most popular men's workouts are (not unpredictably) strength and muscle building workouts. From pumping weights to concentrating on biceps and shoulders to build bulk - further down the track is cardio training.
So a quick run down of workouts that mens use for fitness include :
- Weight training :
A great way to keep in shape. Weight training is a highly effective form of exercise that can get your heart pumping, build muscle, and boost your metabolism. Be sure to learn good technique, and work the whole body, not just the muscles you want to show off.
Playing a sport such as football can get you in good shape, though it is also easy to slack off. If your team has a training program, utilise that as a way of getting in better shape while enjoying your sport - it will also help you to play better!
- Circuit training :
A staple of many sports' teams training programs, circuit training is a great form of exercise that includes elements of strength training, cardio training, and intervals. Not something you can, or should, do every day, but once a week it really adds to your other activities.
- Running :
One of the simplest and most effective ways to get in shape. Simply lace up your trainers and go hit the streets - and if you add in some hills, or a bit of speed work, you'll get in shape even quicker.
Ultimately, mens fitness is about working out regularly and watching what you eat and what you drink. Too much beer and wine and not enough exercise and your workouts will becomine increasingly difficult.
