Full body sculpting exercises are the key to spending less time in the gym. Instead of doing a full hour's workout, you can often combine many exercises and thus reduce your workout time. But this does take realizing what muscle groups you should workout and just how you can accomplish this. Here are some simple full body sculpting exercises that you can add to your workout routine.
Before you can begin, you need to understand how full body sculpting exercises work. By creating two motions at the same time, you will be putting two sets of muscles to work. For example, if you were doing a squat exercise, you would primarily be working out your lower body. But if you adding a shoulder press or tricep kickback at the same time, you could workout your upper body as well. These exercises can be tricky to master when you first start, but once you learn the basics of creating a shorter and more effective workout, you'll wonder why you ever did anything else.
Here are some full body sculpting exercises that you can do at home:
* Squat with upward shoulder press – Squat down, keeping your knees within the line of your toes, as you are moving down, push your arms up above your shoulders.
* Plie with upright row – Place your feet about shoulder width or more apart and turn your toes outward as far as you can without falling over. Take a weight in both of your hands, or have both hands share a weight and hold in front of your body near your waist. Plie by bending your knees and lowering your body only a few inches – your knees should not go further than your toes. As you do this, you will lift the weight in front of you to your chest level.
* Pushup/leg lift – Get into an all fours position on the floor, with your hands directly under your shoulders. Take one leg and lift it so that it is straight in line with your back. Lift the leg up and as you do that, lower your upper body down in a slight pushup. Raise the upper body up as you lower your back leg to the straight position.
With full body sculpting exercises, you can reduce your time in the gym without reducing the benefits for your body. When you're first starting out with these exercises, be sure to perform them slowly and without weights until you understand what you need to do. As you get better at these movements, you will be able to create your own full body sculpting exercises. And create a better body too.
