Want to strengthen your core and build up a six pack? Gym balls can help you isolate your core muscles and really target them for an effective gut-blasting workout. Combining gym ball sessions with other exercises can give you a rounded workout that will help you shed pounds and build muscle.
Weights are the best way to build muscle, whether you go for dumbbells, traditional barbells, or a kettlebell. Lifting and moving weights will help you pile on muscle while also helping you to burn fat and boost your metabolism.
For a cardiovascular workout we also have treadmills and exercise bikes, as well as skipping ropes. Skipping is a favourite with boxers for good reasons: it gives a cardio workout like running, melts fat and it improves your coordination, as well as being easier on the joints than running.
Once you’ve got your equipment and have established an exercise routine you need to keep track of your progress. It can be easy to lose motivation if you don’t see immediate results, but sometimes the changes are small and take time. A fitness tracker will help you monitor and record your heart rate, calorie burn and much more from each workout. Some even offer workouts to follow along to which can help when you’re stuck in a rut.
