A workout refers to the act of exercising. This term is often used to refer to workout routines that are done regularly, such as during physical education classes at school or the gym. People work out for a variety of reasons, it may be to build muscle, improve health and well-being, or perhaps to achieve body symmetry. Regardless of the workout aim, there are a few workout mistakes that need to be avoided to get the most out of workout efforts and also avoid common workout injuries.

Basic Workouts:

One effective workout routine uses a full-body workout approach wherein each major workout muscle group is worked in a workout session. For example, the workout routine could include 4 to 6 different workout exercises. One workout exercise would be used for each workout muscle group. Working out should be part of your workout routine for a healthy lifestyle, no matter what fitness goals you have. If you’re not sure where to start, try this full-body workout for beginners. It’ll get you started on the right track.

Lying Leg Raise:

This workout exercise is considered to be a workout for the core and upper body. It

primarily strengthens the abdominal muscles. Perform this workout exercise by lying on your back with your knees raised to your chest. Then extend one leg at a time, while also lifting the upper body off the ground (by holding onto the ankles).

High-Knee Run:

This workout exercise is considered to be a workout for the hamstrings, quadriceps, lower back, and calves. The workout will require that you are running in place or running around in a circle. Alternatively, you can also use an elliptical machine or other workout machines that are sufficient for high-knee running workouts.

Triceps Dip:

This workout exercise is considered to be a workout for the triceps, upper back, and chest muscles. To perform this workout exercise, you can use a workout bench or workout chair that allows you to sit on one end while your feet are on the other end. Then bring your lower body forward until the weight of your lower body is resting on your arms (or elbows) placed on either side of the workout bench/chair. Finally, lift yourself off the workout bench using your triceps muscles.

Squat Thrusts:

This workout exercise is considered to be a workout for the quadriceps, hamstrings, calves, shoulders, and chest muscles. To perform this workout exercise, stand upright with your arms by your side. Then lower yourself down into a squatting position, while at the same time lifting your arms over your head. Finally, jump back into a standing position.

Push-ups:

This workout exercise is considered to be a workout for the triceps, pectoral muscles (chest), anterior deltoids (front of the shoulder), and serratus anterior (muscles of the upper chest). To perform this workout exercise, lie on the ground face-down and place both hands on the floor just outside shoulder-width apart. Then raise yourself on your toes so that only your hands and feet are touching the floor. Finally slowly lower yourself down towards the ground until you have bent at the elbows by about a 90° angle.

Crunches:

This workout exercise is considered to be a workout for the abdominal muscles (particularly the upper abs). To perform this workout exercise, lie on your back with both hands at either side of your head while keeping your feet flat on the floor. Then simultaneously lift your upper body off the ground and bring your knees towards the chest area. Finally place one hand behind each knee, while also lowering yourself back down to lie face-up on the floor.

Lunge Jumps:

This workout exercise is considered to be a workout for the quadriceps muscles (front thigh), gluteal muscles (buttocks), and anterior deltoids (the front shoulder muscle). To perform this workout exercise, stand upright with your hands by the sides. Then step forward with one leg and lower yourself until both knees are bent at a 90° angle. Finally, jump upwards while switching the position of the legs in mid-air (so that you land with your other foot in front).

Jumping Jacks:

This workout exercise is considered to be a workout for the quadriceps, pectoral muscles (chest), anterior deltoids (front shoulder muscles), hip flexors, gluteal muscles (buttocks), trapezius (upper back), calves, and hamstrings. To perform this workout exercise, start in a standing position while placing your feet wider than shoulder-width apart. Then rapidly jump while at the same time bringing your arms up over your head. Finally, bring your feet back together again to finish one repetition of this workout exercise.

Running in Place:

This workout exercise is considered to be a workout for the entire body. To perform this workout exercise, stand on top of a workout mat or any other flat surface that is sufficient for running on. Then lift yourself upwards into the air by extending both legs vertically and lifting yourself by placing your hands against the bottom of your lower leg muscles (shin bones). Finally, run around in a circle until you have completed what feels like an 8-count on a clock face.
