If you are serious about your exercise program and routine, you are not going to walk into the gym without a plan. A man who wants to see real results in the gym needs an effective routine that is easy to follow. Every routine can be tweaked to your liking, but it is important to work every major muscle as part of your routine.

Total Body Routine

Total body workouts work every major muscle group all in one workout The same or a similar routine is done each workout, making it simple to follow. Workouts should be performed three to five times a week. The total body workout is great for beginners or if you are trying to get back into shape. It ensures that every body part is brought up to speed.

A common total body workout would include a shoulder exercise like the military press, chest exercises like the dumbbell flye and bench press, back exercises like the lat pull-down and barbell row, arm exercises like the triceps extension and bicep curl and leg exercises, like the squat and deadlift. Each exercise should be performed eight to 12 times for two to four sets each.

 

Strength-Building Routine

A strength-building routine uses two workouts–one for the upper body and one for the lower body, alternating twice throughout the week. It also employs super sets, where exercises are performed back-to-back before resting, which increases efficiency and trains for muscle endurance.

An example of a strength-building workout would be:

Day 1 (upper body): Bench press for the chest (five sets, five reps); bent-over row (five sets, five reps) and pull-up for the back; machine crunch (three sets, eight reps) and reverse crunch for abs (three sets, eight reps).

Day 2 (lower body): Squat (six sets, five reps); deadlift (six sets, five reps); Swiss ball leg curl (four sets, six reps); hamstring curl (three sets, eight reps).
