4 Ways to Exercise for the Body You Always Wanted

Here are some of the suggestions you can use to get the desired muscles you have always wanted:

1. Do not forget to use your own body
To do resistance training using your own body is the cheapest and most practical way to gain muscles without have a machine at home. Muscles in certain parts of your body include push-ups and body crunches can be built up through body weight exercise. However, it is better for you try lighter free weights and fitness machines first if you are overweight or you are just starting out.

2. Make do with other resistance training equipment
By building up your muscles, resistance training is an exercise program that enables you to reduce your fats as well as increase your strength. Besides, you can make use of other resistance training equipment to gain muscles aside from free weights and fitness machines. These equipment, include exercise balls and elastic bands, are usually specific for the different parts of your body you want to build muscles on.

3. Exercise using free weights
Exercises using free weights, such as dumbbells, barbells, stacks, and bench presses, are alternative ways that let you build up muscles. The differences between free weights and other strength training equipment are free weights are not attached to a machine and are practically portable wherever you want to do your exercise, except for the bigger and heavier weights.One should always bear in mind that do not start with heavy weights to avoid injuring yourself when using free weight. Besides, give your body couple of days to recover after your muscles grow. It is because muscles are built up when recovering from resistance training exercises. Therefore, it is a good idea to do resistance training thrice a week to give your body have enough time to rest and do some cardio exercises on your other vacant days to help burn fats faster and make your muscles more visible.

4. Train with fitness machines
Fitness machines, such as pulleys and T-bars, can build up your muscles by allowing your body to resist a certain force. These types of equipment are advisable if you are a beginner since they can better prevent accidents and injuries as in the usual case of barbells. The advantage of fitness machines is you can adjust the mode of resistance you want to apply to your body and the range of motion. Nowadays, inexpensive, yet quality versions of these equipment, such as the alternatives of Total Gym 3000 are also being introduced in the market to accommodate those with lesser budget.

Last but not least, having enough rest, sleep, and proper diet are important factors during your muscles built up journey. Feel free to give me a comment about this topic. It will be a great support to Xaivier Blog.
