Health & Fitness Tip/Fact #1

If you've been reading about structuring a workout program, you may have read you should be favoring free weights over machines. And, for the most part, this is very accurate. Free weights tend to offer great advantages in terms of boosting your overall core strength while helping you hit multiple muscle groups at the same time.

Health & Fitness Tip/Fact #2

Warming up for exercise is often overlooked by many people because they are so focused on what exercise program they are going to do in the gym. While your primary workout exercise selection is, of course, important for ensuring you stay on track, don't overlook the benefits a proper warm-up brings. By doing a thorough warm up, you help mentally prepare your body for exercise and get your muscles loose and ready to contract with full force. Those people who perform proper warm-ups are far less likely to suffer from injury and are far more liable to see fast results.

Health & Fitness Tip/Fact #3

As you go about your lower body workouts, one exercise you will want to include in your protocol plan is the deadlift. Stiff legged deadlifts are great for working your glutes, your lower back as well as your hamstrings and, at the same time helping you to be more steady on your feet. If you do a lot of squatting and leg press work, you may be overdeveloping your quads while underdeveloping the back of your body. To improve your balance, deadlifts are key.
