What exercise programs are good for women?

Finding it hard to find the right exercise programs for women? Well, the thing is that workout routines for women and men are pretty much the same. However, instead of giving you the whole muscular, hard rock six pack abs bodies, we will concentrate on giving you a body with a low-fat percentage, making it lean and toned.

If you are looking to burn fat, consider doing:

Interval training alternating high-intensity periods into your cardio workouts together with periods of recovery. Resistance training repetitive exercises with weights, which works to increase muscle strength and endurance

The second point probably got you thinking ‘oh no, I don’t want to get huge muscles’. The fact is that resistance training will give you strength, without all that bulk. This makes you physically stronger, as well as reducing your risk of injury and keeping your heart healthy. Interval training is also considered one of the best and effective ways to burn body fat.

Decline Crunch, Nose to Knee Crunch

If you have already got rid of your belly fat and already have an overall lean body, but want to tone your abs, try:

1. Decline Crunch – Lie down on the decline bench and secure your legs at its end – Place arms either behind the head or crossed on the chest – Contract your abdominals and push down with your lower back until the shoulder blades are fully off the bench, but your lower back should still remain on the bench. – Lower slowly to the initial position and repeat

The decline crunch will work the midsection, and while performing, don’t gain momentum, concentrate on slow controlled movement.

2. Nose to Knee Crunch – Obtain a plank position with hands on the stability ball and toes on the floor – Move right knee towards your nose. Stay for a second and repeat reps with each leg

It works the core, glutes, hips, chest muscles as well as your shoulders; it’s a lot working at once. For this reason, it is regarded as one of the best abs exercises for women!

Finishing up

Now you have got your whole body covered since the interval training will give you a full body workout, while resistance training will sculpt your body as well. These workouts will also work your abdominal muscles. You now have your routine, not designed for men, but especially made workout routines for women.
