Training for muscle growth can be hard. You need to hit the gym consistently, and with plenty of intensity. You also need to pay attention to what you eat and what supplements you take, and then make sure that you get enough rest between workouts to recover and grow. It’s a full time job!

If you want to lose fat, you need to start eating a little less and a little more healthily. This will create a calorie deficit. Your body will make up this calorie shortfall by burning body fat. The result? You’ll get leaner and will probably lose weight too.

It is imperative that a person maintain their fitness levels year-round. Many great exercises can be performed at home, with little or no equipment. Here are the top cardio and strength training exercises to do while indoors.

Look around your gym, and you’ll see a lot of ineffective warm-up routines. You’ll see people doing 20-plus minutes of cardio before strength training, riding an exercise bike before an upper body workout, or static stretching before starting a dynamic training session.

Workouts don’t have to be long to be effective. In fact, when time is against you, you are much more likely to work hard and fast. Short, sharp workouts are more intense and productive than workouts that are done with less urgency. Yes, they hurt more too but that pain is over in minutes rather than hours! If you dread long, laborious leg training sessions, give this workout a try; it’ll be over before you know it!

You don’t have to win the genetic lottery to get a smaller waist.

If you’re serious about progressing in AND out of the gym, you’re going to want to do everything in your power to make it happen. Gaining muscle, or losing fat takes dedication in the gym (and at home), a good diet, and a few other things, like a great finisher!

What is the the best type of exercise for fat loss: is cardio the fat-burning champion, or is strength training the way to go? 

For many, calves are a hard muscle to build as they often seem very resistant to growth.

Instead of doing more of the same, shake up your calf training routine with these tips!
