Body Exercise Workouts
body exercise workouts engage your entire body including your core
resulting in many more fitness benefits. It’s one of the most
effective ways for you to lose weight while at the same time
strengthening the body, get an amazing cardiovascular workout,
improving balance and coordination and toning the abdominals.
Here are some of the other benefits of full body
Offers Flexibility in Training
There are many options with respect to full body workouts. There are
workouts that require no equipment just your body weight and some free
For those of you who have home gyms or prefer to work out at the gym,
you can do total body workouts with free weights like the renegade
dumbbell rows exercise which will work out the back, abs and
improve your balance, strength and coordination.
Another option is using free weights and pulley machines plus a Bosu
Ball. There are many exercises with free weights and requiring the use
of pulley machines that can be done on the Bosu Ball. Almost any
exercise that you do on the floor or seated can be done on the Bosu
Ball. Not only do you get an upper body workout, but you simultaneously
will work your legs and core since maintaining balance on the half ball
will require strength and coordination. You will also find that you
will get an excellent cardio workout too.
Some exercises include:
Dumbbell shoulder presses, chest presses, side lateral raises plus the
Cable crossovers plus the Bosu Ball.
Still other options include free weight plus an Exercise ball or
workouts with Kettle Bells, fitness equipment which is starting to gain
in popularity these days.
Adds Variety to Your Workouts
By changing your workouts every once in a while, it adds a lot of ways
to exercise and keeps you motivated and progressing. Personally I find
cardio machines boring and monotonous. I never use them. When I do
cardio workouts, they will involve outdoor activities.
Doing workouts that engage your entire body will reduce your dependence
on exercise machines. I mean they can still figure into your workouts
especially for short warm-ups or cool-downs, but when it comes to a
full cardio workout, to a much lesser extent.
Exercises and workouts that focus on your entire body are more
effective in helping you to lose belly fat resulting in tighter and
more beautiful looking abdominals than doing solely ab focused
Of course, you can still do ab exercises as part of your workouts to
strengthen your abdominal muscles once the belly fat is gone but you
need not spend a lot of time doing ab exercises. About 10 minutes per
workout is more than enough. You may want to focus on ab exercises like
the bicycle crunch or the leg extension ab crunch. They are a little
tougher to do and more beneficial.
The Time Saver Factor
Working more than 1 area of your body is a great time saver especially
when you don’t have a lot of time to work out. You can be in
and out of the gym in half the time and know that you have had a good
To conclude, working the entire body has many exercise, health and
motivational benefits that I have tried to point out in this article.
