Sculpt Your Body With Weight Training

Posted Feb 18 2010 11:46am
If you want to sculpt your body, do more weight training exercises! Do more weight training exercises that test your balance, coordination, strength and flexibility! This might require that you put that old favorite workout on the shelf and try something new! If you do, I guarantee you will burn more fat and lose more weight!



Try some of these weight training exercises
1. Incorporate many one-legged exercises such as power step ups (pictured above), single leg squats, single leg good mornings, single leg medicine ball exercises, etc. These types of exercises are more intense than two-legged exercises.

2. Include exercises with your eyes closed to improve limb position sense (proprioception). This will also help you burn more fat and calories!

3. Exercise your body in all 3 planes of motion to improve multi-planar balance. An example would be a grouping of walking lunges, side lunges and transverse lunges.

4. Do combinations of one-arm and one-leg exercises such as single leg squat-to-single arm shoulder press.

Balance training also improves your core strength.

Challenge yourself more with weight training and sculpt your body!
