Gym Workout Routines

If you happen to ask anyone in the gym: what's the most vital factor about their exercises the reply would undeniably be - having good gym workout routines!

Nevertheless, if you're a person who still doesn't have an idea of what gym workout routines are all about then you've come to the right place! I am going to give you two examples of good gym workout routines and these routines are meant to be done on a particular day of the week i.e. you do this routine every Saturday or Friday.

Example One: Workout Routine For Chest

This kind of routine is known as a split routine; where you work on one part of your body on different days of the week. For example, work your chest on Fridays and legs on Tuesdays, etc.

•Warm up for about 15-20 minutes either on a treadmill, an elliptical cross trainer, or a rowing machine. This helps gets your muscles heated up for better growth

•Start off by doing Bench Presses. Aim to finish 3 sets of 8-12 reps and rest for at least 1-2 minutes after each set

•Next move on to doing Incline Bench Presses. Aim to complete 3 sets of 8-10 reps and rest at least 1-2 minutes after each set

•Now you are going to do Decline Bench Presses. Aim for the same completion as Incline Bench Presses with the same amount of resting time between sets

•For the last bit of the routine you are going to do the same thing for all sets but this time instead of using barbells you will be using dumbells. So you're going to end it with 1 set of 8-12 reps each of Dumbell Bench Presses, Incline Dumbell Presses, and Decline Dumbell Presses

Example #2: Routine for Chest and Triceps Workout Day

This routine is something like a total body workout routine where you work two body parts a day. This allows you to have more rest days.

•Warm up for 15 minutes

•Bench Press (Flat) - 3 x 10-12 reps

•Bench Dips - 3 x 12 reps

•Incline Bench Press - 3 x 10 reps

•Lying Dumbell Extensions - 3 x 10 reps

•Decline Bench Press - 3 x 10 reps

•Two-arm Lying Dumbell extensions - 3 x 10 reps

To Wrap It Up

Knowing what you'll be doing in the gym that day is essential. You need to know which muscles you plan to work on and what sort of workouts your body can take. Gym workout routines play a vital role in achieving your fitness goals.
