Here is a look at the Top 10 Workouts of All Time as voted by hundreds of elite fitness professionals. Feel free to add and/or delete any workout you like. I am not affiliated with any exercise program in anyway shape or form. You are free to use this information in any way that you like, including using it as a guide for planning your own workout routines.
This list is the result of a very extensive research process. The goal was to find and compile a compilation of the most effective workouts available, based on criteria we believe is important in helping people reach their fitness goals. These criteria were based on criteria that would help make our lists interesting, original and even inspirational. In no way, this list is meant to be used in place of or in conjunction with professional medical or weight loss advice or services, as they were not addressed and researched in this article.
So, without further adieu, let's get to the workouts that made the cut. First up is an exercise that many people overlook and that deserves more attention than it is often accorded. Jump squats at your gym are among the best lower body exercises you can perform. This exercise provides a full body workout, works the thighs, hips and glutes at the same time, and can be easily done at home. There are several home workout videos you can find on YouTube that demonstrate the proper technique for performing this exercise.
Second on the list is interval training and while it is not a full body workout, it does burn a lot of fat, especially when performed with intensity. I find interval home workouts a little too challenging for my average fitness level and am not always successful at reaching the desired caloric burn for each session. As a result, I will either put the exercise off indefinitely or cut back on the frequency. Still, these intense workouts are among the top 10 workouts of all time, if not the top.
Next in the top 10 workouts is the single-leg bent-over row. The single-leg bent-over row is performed exactly as the name implies, with one leg bent over at the knee and the other straight. From a standing position, with the feet hip-width apart, pull the leg inward at the knee until the thigh is almost touching the floor. Hold the position for two seconds before returning to the standing position and doing the same for the other leg.
Lastly, the final exercises on my list for the top 10 workouts at the gym are the wide-grip pull ups and military press. These exercises are performed using a fairly narrow grip on the upper chest and a narrow grip on the lower chest. To perform the wide-grip pull up, begin by laying face down on the bench with the elbows resting directly behind your neck. With your feet hip-width apart, pull the dumbbells up to your sides with a controlled movement and lower them slowly as you raise your arms.
The final section of this article will focus on the final two exercises for my favourite workouts at the gym. The first being the classic hiit exercise, performed in a slow, steady motion. This type of workout is ideal for those who do not have a lot of time to get to the gym, as it works the entire body rather than simply targeting one muscle group. For this reason, I really recommend this as the first step for anybody looking to improve their fitness levels and general health.
Finally, I want to share some of my favourite workouts at the gym with you. The final two exercises, which are often not mentioned in any of my fitness articles, are deadlift and squats. Both of these exercises are great cardio workouts, meaning that they provide a lot of health benefits but also work the muscles hard, building lean muscle mass. If you haven't worked out before, take the advice given in this article and you will soon be on your way to better fitness.
