A good exercise program is a combination of cardiovascular and weightlifting
exercises. Your weightlifting should consist of seven to twelve exercises. Make sure to balance your workout to include all muscle groups. For the best results, perform a few exercises for each muscle group.
A complete workout program changes slightly every couple of weeks. Performing the
same routine causes progress to decrease. Challenge your body by doing different
weightlifting and cardiovascular exercises. If you are walking two miles per hour on the treadmill, speed up to three miles per hour. Change your exercises on each body part periodically.
YOU HAVE TO LIFT weights along with cardiovascular exercises if you desire good
results. To speed up your metabolism you must increase muscle mass. Some type of weightlifting should be performed at least two times a week.
