Making Progress

Tips to Help You Lose Inner Thigh Fat

4. Schedule Leg Day Although specific inner thigh exercises won’t burn the fat there, they can help build stronger, more shapely legs by developing the inner thigh muscles.

Vary Your Reps With These Methods

While barbell back squats are generally synonymous with booty gains, changing your rep range or style will help increase your training volume and can be a fun way to mix things up, Halse says.

Do These 3 Moves to Increase Glute Gains

Your glutes are the largest muscle in your body (your gluteus maximus, specifically), so you’ll need to incorporate different exercises to activate each part of this muscle group (the gluteus medius and minimus are the other two muscles that make up your glutes). Halse recommends you complement your squats with these three moves: 1. Hip Thrust Here’s […]

Add Weight to Your Squats

Once you can comfortably perform 3 sets of 20 body-weight squats, it’s time to progress to the next level by upping the resistance. Adding weight to your squats not only helps your glutes develop but it’ll take some of the boredom out of a repetitive body-weight squat routine. The barbell back squat is one option. […]

Body-Weight Squats Work — Only to a Point

Noticing a booty-building plateau (one of the worst kinds!) even though you’ve been adding more body-weight squats to your workout routine? It’s actually a pretty common problem, and if you’ve mastered the body-weight squat, it’s probably time to change things up. No trainer will deny that squats are among the top exercises for building functional […]

How to Incorporate Progressive Overload Into Your Workouts

Unless you’re a certified trainer, the very best way to incorporate progressive overload training is to work with an expert who can write you a program that takes your goals, schedule and current fitness level and lifts in mind. But if that’s out of your price range or you’re do it yourself-er, the best way […]

Why You Need Progressive Overload

If you’re on the hunt for a way to maximize the effectiveness and efficiency of your workouts, all experts agree: Progressive overload is it. Progressive overloading involves intentionally planning your workouts so that every single session maximizes its strength-building potential. Typically, that means manipulating the weight, rep scheme, tempo or intensity of a movement. Could […]

What Does Progressive Overload Mean?

The key to gaining strength and building muscle, “the progressive overload principle says that in order for our muscles to change and get stronger, we need to work them harder.” That probably makes sense to you intuitively, but to understand physiologically why and how this works, you need to understand how muscle growth happens. During […]

The One Method Guaranteed to Help You Get Stronger

No shade to the mood-boosting benefits of strength-training.

Plank Mistakes That Make the Move Ineffective (and Potentially Painful)

Hiking or Sagging the Hips About 45 seconds into a minute-long plank, you may be tempted to hike the hips to the ceiling or sag them toward the ground to give your abs a break. You may even be doing it without realizing it! “Hiking the hips up to the ceiling is going to take […]

Plank Mistakes That Make the Move Ineffective (and Potentially Painful)

Looking Up Looking up at a mirror or clock during your plank may help you check your form or stay on track, but it can also wreak havoc on your form, Whitney says. The key to a plank lies in keeping your entire body in a straight line from head to hips to heels. Glancing […]

Plank Mistakes That Make the Move Ineffective (and Potentially Painful)

You’re Arching Your Back One of the most common plank mistakes is arching the lower back, says April Whitney, CSCS. As your core starts to fatigue, it’s common to let your midsection sag toward the ground, causing your back to fall out of alignment. Although this error doesn’t always cause immediate injury, this mistake causes stress […]

Motivating Yourself To Get Moving

Step 3: Run an Experiment If you’re inactive, the thought of embarking on an exercise regimen can be daunting. Instead of focusing on the effort involved, take one tiny step toward your goal. “What would happen if you took that 15-minute walk?” I suggest setting it up as an experiment — even if it’s a […]

Motivating Yourself To Get Moving

Step 1: Be Real With Yourself Let’s say you’re open to the idea of exercising. Maybe you’ve thought about doing something but haven’t committed, and you’re certainly not intending to lace up your sneakers today — or tomorrow, for that matter. As a first step, Gagliardi asks people to think through why they want to […]

The Optimal Squat Depth for Glute Gains, Explained

Squats are a must-have staple in any leg-day routine. But since they mostly rely on your quads, you may need to tweak how you do them in order to target your glutes more. So how low can (or should) you go? For maximum booty gains, your squat depth matters, and you may not be squatting […]

A 10-Minute Isometric Core Workout for a Slow but Serious Burn

Having six-pack abs would be nice, but a washboard tummy doesn’t always equate to a strong core — and a strong core is what’s important for overall health and fitness. Your core protects your spine and also initiates almost every movement: From standing up to walking to lying down, your core muscles — your abs, of course, […]

Lifting Weights

Lifting weights not only helps you burn fat, but it also amps up your ability to perform such daily tasks as carrying groceries, climbing stairs and doing other household chores. Lifting weights is critical since all of us lose one to two percent of our muscle strength each year, according to a December 2013 Journal of […]

The Science Behind the Most Effective Ab Workouts

The best ab workouts focus on strengthening your entire core, not just your “six-pack muscles.” Carving an enviable six-pack isn’t an easy feat — which is too bad, since it seems nearly everyone wants a defined set of abs. But too many people view a sculpted midsection as a kind of status symbol, reserved for the genetic […]
