The next thing to do is to exercise regularly. Do not be lazy and skip out on this because there are no shortcuts in life, no matter how many people says otherwise. This also holds true if you want to get your dreamed six pack abs. But you must do the right exercise as most people mistakenly think doing crunches and other abdominal exercises are enough to get the six pack abs. The truth of the matter is that most abdominal exercises out there do very little in gaining your desired abs.
Contrary to proper belief, the most important process of muscle building is not the workout. It’s the rest period. When you are lifting weights you’re actually damaging muscle. While you rest and recover, your body is hard at work repairing muscle tissue to be even stronger than ever before. I highly recommend you get at least 7-8 hours of sleep per night. These days it’s hard to do that, but it’s very important for your health, especially if you want to be in shape. If your goal is to build muscle or lose fat you are demanding a lot from your body and need to rest it properly.
My back muscles were pathetic when i was younger. My toothpick skinny frame did not make my back stand out at all. I remember walking behind guys who had these muscles, it was obvious they did because their backs bulge out.
Dumbbell Drop Squat x 5 reps: This exercise is performed by dropping as fast as you can down into an a squat position. Then stop at no deeper than 90 degrees of hip and knee flexion. Pretend as if you are “falling” into the squat and all of a sudden stop on a dime at the bottom position. Slowly come back up.
The best strategy to use while in the gym to really shed the fat is an all-around, all workout routine review. You want to make sure that the biggest muscle groups in your body are getting worked out. The best exercises are a variety of squats, deadlifts, and presses. Any number of these exercises will work many muscle groups in your body. You can switch them up and try different versions of each to reach even more muscle groups.
Exercising is important obviously but you want to limit your cardio workouts. At most, you want to do no more than two sessions per week at 30 minutes per session. For beginners you may want to lay off cardio entirely for at least 8-12 weeks. During that time you will want to work on your training and diet routine to pack on some muscles.
Most dumbbell workout routines you see men and women do are “bodybuilding” type workouts. They perform dumbbell exercise with the intention of “isolating” small muscles to make them grow. And since the muscle groups they are targeting are small, they use light weights. And lifting light weight dumbbells using small muscle groups does not burn fat!
