There are so many workout and fitness
programs being marketed to the male species that it can be almost impossible to
work out (excuse the pun) what is real, what is relevant and what will work for
a particular body type and fitness level. Sure, I want a six pack and bulging
pecs and there are no shortage of pictures trying to convince me that a certain
program will deliver these in the shortest possible time, with the least
possible effort, using the very latest gizmo, and new found method of
biodynamic body fat burning diet... but what should I consider?
Let's have a look at some of the men's
workout and fitness exercise programs that are available, and what they are
generally considered to be good for:
- Metabolic Resistance Training. Otherwise known as MRT,
this fitness training method has also been known as Cardio Strength
Training and Metabolic Strength Training (CST and MST respectively).
Metabolic Resistance Training is essentially strength training with a
focus on shorter rest periods. This causes a strong stimulus to your
metabolic system so that you burn fat, and get fitter, faster than
traditional approaches. By doing these body strength exercises one after
the other with short breaks between them, you are making your muscles work
but also using your aerobic and anaerobic systems at the same time. Even
better, the impact on your metabolism can apparently last up to 48 hours
after the workout so you can do an MRT workout every second day and be
burning fat continuously – 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
- Resistance Band Exercises. Resistance band training
uses bands that stretch in order to provide the sort of resistance that
you get from free weight or body weight exercises. One of the unique
features of resistance bands is that the further the band stretches, the
more resistance is provided. This is useful because the most resistance
comes at the end of the range of motion being done in the exercise.
Benefits include mobility (you can easily take the bands with you and do
the exercises anywhere you can find a bit of space), flexibility (build
strength, muscular endurance and muscle tone across all muscle groups with
a wide range of exercises) and a variety of resistance levels (vary the
number and/or strength of the bands in order to vary the
- Cardio exercise. An oldie but a goodie, Cardiovascular
exercise is any exercise that raises your heart rate and keeps it above
its normal rate for an extended period of time. It is also known as
aerobic exercise. Examples of exercises associated with cardiovascular
workouts are things like jogging, walking, cycling and swimming where
there is no break in the routine.
- Pilates for men. Let's add a new age regime for
completeness. Actually, far from being the latest fad, Pilates was
developed during World War 1 to help wounded soldiers regain strength and
flexibility. More recently it has been seen as something for the ladies
but is now gaining acceptance with men looking for fitness and
strengthening exercise. Pilates is all about core body strength, general
muscle tone, flexibility, posture and your overall balance. It has a very
strong following with professional dancers and athletes.
- There are many other programs of course. The Internet
can be a great way of finding information although the sheer volume of
information can be somewhat daunting at times. A good avenue for finding
information on this topic is your insurance provider. Whether it's term life
insurance, general health insurance, or even income protection or
death and disability insurance, these providers all want you to be fitter,
healthier and happier as that's going to reduce the number of claims they
get. They will normally have quite well researched information that you
Any fitness or exercise program will be
of benefit to you. It's really a matter of working out what specific outcomes
you want – a six pack and bulging pecs, general improvement in muscle tone,
improved cardio-vascular fitness (lower blood pressure) or better balance and
posture – and, probably most important of all, what you enjoy doing. From there
you should be in a good position to work out what fitness exercises suit you
