What’s the Best exercise?

By: 0

What is the best exercise for:

(insert body part here!)?

If I had a dollar for every time someone asked that question…  The answer is the one you ‘enjoy’ doing.

If you like to run, then run.  If you like Yoga, do Yoga.  Any exercise is better than no exercise.  That being said, some exercises are better than others.

You can never go wrong with good old-fashioned weight training.  Lifting things up and putting them down helps to build lean muscle, which in turn burns fat.  However, weights in and of themselves are generally not enough stimulation for most people, so adding in some high intensity intervals is great too.  Here’s just one example: 30 second sprint, 10 burpees, and 20 sit-ups for 6-8 minutes at maximum effort. That quick high intensity session is an anabolic killer, and awesome for burning fat and preserving muscle.

Now, we’re all after that elusive ‘six-pack,’ but you do not have to spend countless hours on ab routines that at the end of the day will give you no more definition in your belly than if you had done nothing.  I’m not saying you do not need a healthy strong core, but no number of crunches is going to give you the belly you want without a clean diet and a well-balanced training regimen.

At the end of the day, a successful regimen all comes down to diet, training intensity and frequency.  If you are eating healthy whole foods and training 3-5 days per week while mixing in some heavy weights and high intensity work you should be seeing results.  Remember you cannot out run a bad diet.
