Not only by choosing the trainer but also by choosing the days to work out, orderly exercising along with cardiovascular training might give good results.

Here are the tips for a total body workout:

Start up with warm up exercises: – Before going for heavy exercises, it is always good to warm-up your body by walking, using a treadmill for 5-10mintues. Let the muscles be warmed up a little so that muscle elasticity is increased, thus reducing strain or pull risks.

Major to minor: -Every time you go to train your body, see that the exercise regime starts from major muscles to minor muscles. Major includes your posterior and the legs and the small muscles include the arms. Start from legs, spine, abdomen, upper body, shoulders and then proceed to arms.

Complex to seclusion: -The movements become more effective, when complex exercises are done with great effort. According to experts, complex exercises involve more muscle fibres. Once you complete doing complex exercises, continue doing isolation exercises which need less energy .Complex exercises include crunches, up-down planks, triceps dips, dead lifts and sumo squats, squat jumps etc. Isolation exercises include practicing dumbbells or twists.

Resting Intervals: – “Optimum Anabolics” states that “start with 60second rests between the series would reduce to 45 or 30 seconds as you progress from one week to another week”. Timed intervals for resting in between series of exercising would help you keep the strength up and even helps in burning more calories with a proficient work out.

Set Cardio timings: – Cardio exercises can be done, under training, before you do actual exercises with the help of weights. But, it drains entire energy and might force you to halt the training earlier than required. So, it is always necessary to go for the rest of the exercises first and then go to Cardio, which makes fat burn more powerfully and helps in building more muscles.

Different types of Workouts: – Depending on your time, your trainer can set the time in which you would be covering total body exercises, like, 28 minute workout, 18 minute workout etc. The more workouts you need, the more minutes the regime includes in it.

Workout on every alternate day:-According to The Abs Diet, “entire body workouts help to increase the metabolic rate up to or more than 48hours. Instead of doing workouts every day, do it on every alternate day, which gives your body ample time to recover and burn your calories throughout the week.

Others: –It is not a matter of shedding 10 or 100 pounds from your body, but all that matters is which plan would be effective for higher efficiency.
