When choosing a complete body sculpting routine, you need to look at several things: the areas worked, the complexity, and the overall effectiveness. But sometimes, you just want someone to tell you what to do. In this complete body sculpting routine, you will get to workout all of the major muscles groups without a lot of equipment or fancy movements. If you’re a beginner, this routine will be a great place to start your exercise journey.
To begin, this complete body sculpting routine needs to be done every other day, or about two to three times a week. It’s best if you skip a day in between the workout as your muscles need a chance to repair themselves. When you do body sculpting exercises, you’re breaking the muscles down. This is a good thing. When they muscles have time to rest and repair, your muscles become stronger and better toned. If you don’t have time to do the entire workout, you may want to split it up into upper and lower body, but then you will need to still skip a day between each of these groups. For example, you might workout your lower body on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays, and your upper body on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays.
The upper body portion of this complete body sculpting routine should include the following exercises:
* Bench presses
* Bicep curls
* Tricep dips or lifts
* Shoulder presses (military style)
* Shoulder lifts
* Crunches – traditional, lower, and side
There are other exercises that you can include as well, but to start, this upper body workout is hitting all the major muscles groups. You will want to start off with 10 repetitions of these exercises, moving slowly and carefully without weights. As you get the movements down, you can add weights, slowly increasing the weight and then adding additional sets of repetitions as you get fitter.
For your lower body, you will want to follow a complete body sculpting routine that includes:
* Calf raises
* Leg lifts – outer and inner
While this routine seems much simpler than the upper body routine, the larger muscles in the legs are the reason for fewer exercises. With fewer muscles, you don’t need extra exercises to target them. You can follow the same repetition guidelines as you would for the upper body, though you may need to add weight immediately as your lower body strength tends to be higher naturally.
By following this complete body sculpting routine, you should see results within four to eight weeks. If you include some cardiovascular exercises at the same time, the results will be quicker.
