The Benefits Of Full Body Workouts

We all know that doing full body workouts is the best way to burn the most calories during a workout, and results in using our time in the best manner possible while we are in the gym. Even though we have a proper understanding of this fact, it is often difficult to figure out how to properly put together full body workouts. Despite the perception that this has to be a daunting task, you can actually create a challenging yet fun repertoire of exercises to use during your full body workouts. By the end of this article, you will be able to have a better understanding of what goes into your full body workouts, as well as how to pattern your workout to burn the most amount of calories.

When designing a full body workout, you can do quite a bit with just your body weight and a little bit of space. By focusing on exercises that recruit as many muscles as possible, such as pushups, body weight squats, and lunges, you are able to work both the upper body and lower body while keeping your heart rate up, resulting in the highest amount of calories possible.

Once you have chosen which exercises you will be doing during your full body workouts, you can then focus on how you are going to arrange those exercises to keep your heart rate up. The most effective pattern to use when planning your workouts is to use a circuit style workout pattern. This means that you alternate a minute of resistance exercise with thirty seconds to a minute of active rest. For example, you will do one minute of push ups, and then immediately switch into active rest, by running, doing jumping jacks, or burpees.

By properly choosing your exercises as well as the way in which you will be performing them, you can maximize the amount of calories you burn during your workout. You can also change things up by doing a barbell, dumbbell, or kettlebell workout.
