Build Muscles Fast With Multi Joint Workout

Changing up Your Already Established Workout Routine To Build Muscles

 

Building muscle quickly is all a matter of perception, and muscles is a natural fat fighter. Fast, in this case, means months or even years depending on one’s workout plan. It takes commitment, dedication, and patience. You can’t start a workout routine to build muscle and notice much of a difference to your muscle mass in the first month or two. You can, however notice the difference in how you feel, increase your stamina and lose weight almost immediately when accompanied by a proper nutritional diet. Feeling better and losing weight should be the incentive that will keep you on track to achieve your goals with your workouts routine to build a lean body.

 

Set goals! Make short term and long term goals as it relates to your workout routine. Don’t set goals that are unattainable or out of reach. Write them down. Then you can take pride and have a sense of accomplishment when they are achieved. When you go to the gym or work out, keep track of what you have done. You want to balance your workouts to assure that you are working all of the muscles in your body. Workout hard between 40 to 70 minutes, 3 or 4 times a week and never for more than 90 minutes at a time.

 

Turn single joint exercises into multi-joint as much as possible. When doing a bicep curl you are bringing your wrist up to your shoulder and back down again utilizing one joint, your elbow. Try this instead. When bringing your wrist to your shoulder move your elbow toward your back in more of a rowing manner. You still have the elbow flexion, but now you have the shoulder moving and utilizing all of the muscles around it, in your chest and back. The last exercise has accomplished much more in the same amount of time.

  single arm curl

When doing squats often considered the king of muscle building exercises, you stand with your legs about shoulder width apart, feet pointed straight out, drop your hips back keeping your upper body straight. Drop down as if you are sitting down in a chair and stop when your knees hit about a 90 degree angle. This is putting pressure on your quads, hamstrings and gluts. Then you come back up and do it again. Now try it this way instead. Keep the instructions for the squats the same except when you come up, jump up, bringing your arms over your head jumping jack style, clap your hands together and repeat. Not only are you utilizing almost every muscle but you are using all of the smaller muscles that help you stabilize your body. This helps you gain and maintain a more efficient body and builds muscle mass more quickly with faster weight loss.

 

Hundreds of books have been written about weight loss and fitness nutrition. I’m going to try to fit some of the most helpful information into this paragraph. With a workout routine, natural whole foods are the best. Stay away from processed food as much as possible. Protein is a necessary part of your diet for the growth of muscles. This includes lean red meat, dairy products (egg are very high in protein), fish and chicken among others. Do not cut them out of your diet.

 

Soy protein is not a great source of protein and shouldn’t be substituted as the main protein in your diet. Only eat carbs after a workout and limit your intake. Eat 6 to 8 small meals every 2 to 3 hours daily. Eat vegetables with every meal, yes, every meal! One of the great things about vegetables is they are low in calories. Only drink water and green tea.

Below is my favorite recipe and I prepare it in much larger batches and separate it into smaller portions that are easy to take anywhere and microwave.

Total calories for this meal is 390, protein 29g, fat 20g and is perfect for my caloric intake with 6 meals a day. 4 ounces (1 cup) Oriental vegetables, 3 ounces lean sirloin, 3 or 4 dashes of soy sauce, 1 tsp teriyaki sauce, 1tsp lemon juice, 1tsp lime juice, 1tsp minced garlic, 1 large red bell pepper, 1 cup of frozen green beans, 1tsp BBQ sauce, 1Tbs Olive oil Salt & Pepper to taste.

 

Blanch vegetables in boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain vegetables and sautee in frying pan with olive oil, minced garlic, salt and pepper until the vegetables are starting to brown. Cut sirloin into small bite size pieces and add to frying pan along with the remainder of the ingredients. Simmer for 5 to 10 minutes or until sirloin is cooked to your desired temperature. Then dig in and Enjoy! Don’t Forget to check out some of my books on diet and exercise and the different types of workout routines here.

Make a Variety of Exercise Routines Out Of These Exercises

  Here are some more helpful workout videos to assist you on your way to getting the body of your dreams while you are doing your exercise routine correctly. As I mentioned in my other blogs diet and proper exercise will work wonders for your physical and mind. Always try to mix up your workouts from time to time to get the best results. Start with some of the exercises you like at first, then gradually mix in the rest of the workouts you do not usually do. Exercise confusion is the key to physical success. If you have been working out long enough you will know what I am talking about.   A new workout will really challenge your body and will have a better affect on it. Remember, your body is very adaptive so you always have to keep changing up your workout routine to get the best possible results.  Don’t be afraid to try new exercises you never know how much you might end up liking it. Be open minded when it comes to your exercise routines and you could end up with an awesome body in little time. A good plan would be to do a particular workout routine for no more than 1-2 months then do something different in the workout or change the exercises up altogether. For example, you might be use to doing 4 exercises with 10 reps of 4 sets on a particular day; after doing this routine for a while say 2 months you might want to do 6 exercise(including the original 4 exercises and add 2 more exercises) of 6 reps each for 6 sets for each exercise. Or do the same 4 exercises now do 30 reps of 8 sets instead of the amount of reps you were doing before. When I say do an increase in the reps, I mean lower the weights where you can just barely complete the # of reps needed to achieve the desired amount of repetitions you are aiming for. Or to lower your reps from 10 to 6 reps, then you would increase the weights to where you can complete the 6th reps all the way. For these examples I am referring to free weights or machine weights exercise primarily. However, similar or the same thing can be done for sit ups and push ups to a certain extent.Remember to always check with your physician before starting any workout regimen to make sure your body is healthy enough for exercise.

7 Tricks to Help You Get Back to Working Out

7 Tricks to Help You Get Back to Working Out

Most of us have been there; you device a workout routine that you know will get you to exercise or visit the gym more. You predict that in just three short months, you will look as good as the people you see on TV. Only to end up a week later on your couch, binge eating and wondering why it is so difficult to stay focused on your fitness goals. If you have slipped up or have taken way too long a break from living healthy and exercising, here are 7 tricks to help you get back to working out. Here there are:   Start small Most of the time the problem is thinking about how big a commitment exercising can be. You may not be willing to take an hour off your day just to go to the gym. But you can take 5 minutes to take a brisk walk or a light jog. This will act as your launching pad. As soon as you accomplish this small goal, the good feeling you get will motivate you to keep going. Make it a debt Mobile Apps like Pact make it difficult for people to quit. Once you join Pact, you become a member of a community that will hold you to your word. If you do not accomplish your pledged fitness goals within the stated time, you are charged a certain amount of money; if you do, you are paid a certain amount as well. That should keep you motivated.   slender body Make it part of your to-do list One of the main reasons why people find excuses not to workout is because they think of it as a time waster. This will not be the case if you actually have time allocated to working out. Make it part of your diary and you will find that it is easier to stick to that schedule as you normally do. Be part of a one-month challenge Another big problem is that most people think of exercising as a life-long activity. Although, ideally it should be, that kind of commitment is a little discouraging to some people. What you can do instead is to think of it as a short burst of commitment. Make it a one-month challenge that you must complete. Breaking it down like this will make it seem manageable. Get a committed workout partner It is often easy to back out of things when you are only answerable to yourself. But if you find a workout buddy, someone you need to help out and answer to as well, then it will be more and more difficult to come up with excuses not to workout. Refuse to be a statistic A vast majority of the developed world is suffering from lifestyle diseases like obesity and diabetes. It has become so rampant that people who are not overweight are the exception in the society. Become a part of the elite group. Think of yourself as special and refuse to be part of the problem. Hire a trainer if your budget allows you Trainers bring in a new focus and twist to things. One of the main reasons as to why some people fall off the workout wagon is because they get bored of the same old routines. Hiring a trainer will infuse some excitement into your workout sessions.

You body will be stimulated by your new workout routine. In a sense your body learns your routines and you have to spice it up by working out and doing something drastically different from time to time. If you normally start out by using the stair climber, then moving to the weight, then to the treadmill. Mix it up and do it in reverse order. Even change the amount of time your would normally spend doing your exercise to doing a different exercise to adding many more reps, or lowering your reps. The possibilities are only limited by your mind. Be creative and have fun with it and boredom is far less likely to happen. Here is a good abdominal solution program that will also help you along the way to slimming down and getting 6 pack abs.

Physical exercises will also reduce the risk of serious and deadly diseases such as colon, lung and breast cancer, stroke, arthritis, heart diseases, diabetes, osteoporosis and more.  

Reduces Stress and Anxiety

Daily workout helps in reducing anxiety and stress by diminishing the electrical activities in your muscles. Your body also releases endorphin after each workout which results in boosting your moods and promoting relaxation. When your body is in this mode you are not likely to be easily stressed or anxious.  

Improves your Sexual Performance and is Effective in Restoring Libido

If you get tired and lack the energy to enjoy intimacy with your partner, then regular physical exercise is all you need. As a man, you will always feel more energized after exercises which can lead to a great impact to your intimacy with your partner.

Workout Routine In The Winter

Workout routine in the winter can be more difficult that in the warmer months. If you are going to start a workout program to lose weight in the fall or in the summer, it would be more challenging to lose weight in the fall depending on where you live, than in the summer. For example, living in North Dakota would be more difficult for most people to stay focused, do their workouts and lose weight than if they lived in say Southern Florida or California.    Lets face it, you can never be too fit and when you live in a warmer climate your body is more acclimated to becoming physically active easier and quicker than if you were living in a colder climate. Or even when the seasons change you get ups and downs in your motivation to complete your basic workout routine. Take your car for example; on a 80 degree day you can start it up and take off in a minute or so, but you would not be able to take of that quickly after started it in 20 degree weather. You would have to warm it up and raise the internal temperature of the vehicle first; the same thing goes for your body when you try to exercise in colder weather. It takes more time to get warmed up and to be in the mood to exercise. So you have to be mentally and physically committed to your workout routines. You must really have the motivation and drive necessary in order to lose weight and exercise the way you need to, or else the change in the seasons and in the temperature can really be a bummer if you don’t prepare and stay motivated.

Workout Plan

Weight Machines

I have talked about getting leaner in the past. Getting leaner will help you to burn more fat. You will burn more fat while you eat, sleep, work out or anything else that you do. Getting leaner starts with working out regularly with some type of resistance training; at least 3 times a week.  Here is a workout plan to assist in getting to your ideal body image goal.

 

You do not have to workout like a professional bodybuilder to become lean. Doing any type of light weights for resistance training is a great start. Even using your own body weight or a fraction of it can be a really good start to building light, lean muscles to help to speed up your overall metabolism. In turn it will give you more energy and burn more fat. Whether you are needing to start working out for the 1st time, or if you are a seasoned pro and you just need a little variety in your routine try these 2 different weekly workout plans I have personally designed for you below. Remember to always check with your physician before starting any workout plan.

 

Do each of these weekly workouts for 4 weeks straight to start out(2 weekly workouts programs x 4 weeks = 8 weeks). Then on the 9th week start to alternate the workouts weekly for the next 8th week(workout 1 x 1 week, then workout 2 x 1 week for 8 weeks total) before going back to doing each weekly workout for 4 weeks each straight again. Here are the 2 different weekly work out programs and how they would work. This is assuming you have the necessary workout equipment or a local gym membership.

Good Way to Lose Weight

workouts

There is one good way to lose weight. Do so incorrectly and you must expect that the pounds will come back – with interest. Losing weight can be difficult. Keeping the weight off is however even more difficult. This confirms a survey conducted by Kraschnewski and colleagues two years ago. Of the 14,000 participants who declined ten percent, only managed fifteen percent of them actually kept the weight off for one year. This is often caused by a combination of several factors, but much could be prevented, if they lost weight properly. To do that requires knowledge of the body’s defense mechanisms, and what one should do to prevent their body from working against them. Body’s defense mechanisms When you lose weight your body will adapt by implementing several processes.   Appetite increases. Resting Metabolism decreases (more than weight loss would indicate). You move unconsciously less than previously. The energy consumption of motion decreases (you become more energy efficient). This is the body’s normal response to an energy deficit (weight loss), depending on the size of it and how long you’ve been in the energy deficit stage. The greater the weight loss, the stronger the signal. Those of you who constantly cut in energy intake will eventually be a huge mismatch between energy intake and body weight. The result may be that even if you eat very little food (6-9 kcal / pound) you will not go down at the pace you wanted to. These is only a good solution. Many people choose the wrong approach and eat even less. Doing so, will cause the mismatch to only grow larger. Over time, this will lead to difficulty losing additional weight. It will be even more difficult to keep the weight off.   Do not let the scale ruin it for you. When dieting, it is important to do everything right from day one. It is important that you understand that your body weight is only the sum of everything you weigh. It says nothing about how you look or how you feel. Allowing the scale alone to determine your progress, can be very debilitating. Although the goal is to lose weight, there are several tools that are more important. One is waistline. The waist measurement will give a good idea on which way it goes. Go down around the stomach, while the weight is stationary, this means that you have lost a lot of fat and maybe built some muscle. The second tool is progress in strength. Do not plan to lose much weight without strength training; if you did that this is a very bad idea. Your strength is a good indication that you burn a lot of fat when exercising and at rest. How your clothes fit your body and compliment from other people around you, is not without significance.   Read More -Check out our 1 RM calculator If you are going to lose weight you should aim to shed most of the weight that is fat and not muscle that provides form and shape. So briefly summarized (ranked by how important they are): Waist measurement Increased strength (relative to body weight). How clothes fits body and the compliment from others. Bathroom weight. When you have a broader and more precise approach to your objective chances are significantly greater that you will become one of the fifteen percent that succeed. You should achieve a positive plan for at least one of the tools. If your weight had not improved for three weeks, as long as your waistline goes down and your strength goes up you are making progress.   The solution is easier than you think Now hopefully you have understood the theory behind weight loss, it is important to look into what can be done in practice. Be stingy on calories is ok as long as you don’t cut your energy level in doing so. Remember that everything you do should be realistic to implement for the long term. The faster you cut your energy intake, the greater the negative effects. Although your weight maybe at a standstill, it may be that you burned the fat and therefore you are getting a beautiful body. Since you aim to lose a certain number of pounds. Also aim to look amazingly good! Try to move a lot. Rosenbaum, an expert in the field of clinical weight loss, through their research know that to maintain an acceptable level of physical activity is important to lose weight and keep the weight off. Strength training causes you to burn more fat percentage wise, in addition to that it will give you muscles that make the physical appearance improves. Another positive thing is that with strength training you will be able to maintain a higher resting metabolism. You may have been overweight for 5, 10 or 20 years? So be realistic and do not expect to be thin in 8 weeks. Weight loss is more of a gradual process of repeated good habits after good habits over time, this will give your long term results. 3 tips for people who have had great success: I.Many of you might have already started to lose weight. Some of you may not have seen great improvement thought? There is no reason for despair – you can almost always fix what you’ve done wrong. It requires, however, that you trust that the advice I give is better than the ones you tell yourself. 2.You might weigh 164 lbs and eat 1300 kcal. Fortunately your body adapts both ways. You need to eat more, so you will burn more. Increase energy intake by 2-400 hundred kcal. This will increase resting metabolism and you will have more energy to move more. 3.Eat more protein. Although one pound of muscle and one pound of fat burns about the same in rest, a modest increase in muscle mass over time could increase resting metabolism by up to 10%. Protein is essential to maintain and build muscle. Become stronger. As I previously mentioned, strengthening is a good indication that you burn fat. Strength training can help to increase resting metabolism, while you build muscle that makes you burn more when you are active. The most important thing you can do when things have gone a little bad for you is to take action – the sooner the better. You have the tools to lose weight and keep it off. You just need to implement them and get back up when you have made some bad choices with your diet and exercise plan.
