Keeping the body toned can seem like an impossible feat. There are times that no matter how hard I try, it seems I may never be able to achieve the desired results. Millions across the nation share this same feeling. Fitness gurus have offered several tips to getting the body in shape. A few of the exercises on their list include:

  • Planking tones the core
  • Squats tone the legs
  • Push-ups are great for toning the arms
  • Reverse crunches tone the lower abs

Planking Tones the Core

Research suggests there are many benefits to adding planks to your exercise routine. Planks are great for toning all aspects of the core. It also helps strengthen these muscles. Some research suggests that this exercise can help improve posture. If you need help getting your abs ready for the summer, it may be time to add planks to your daily workout.

Squats Tone the Legs

There is no better exercise available to help sculpt the thighs. Time and again these can prove to be the more difficult area of the legs to whip into shape. Fitness experts advise that adding squats as part of your routine exercise can produce results quickly. It is important to know, for those just beginning, you will be sore the next day. Do not let this keep you from continuing.

Push-Ups are Great for Toning the Arms

While I absolutely despise push-ups I recognize their value in building strength and toning the arm muscles. Fitness gurus advise that while these can be a fantastic exercise, it is vital to make sure to use correct form in order to prevent injury. Begin your push-up workout today and watch your arm muscles shape up in no time.

Reverse Crunches Tone the Lower Abs

Are you looking for a solution for your lower abs? You are not alone. In addition to the thighs, the lower abs can prove to be a stubborn area of the body which can be difficult to make any progress. Reverse crunches are fantastic for these muscles. Like any other exercise, it is necessary to practice proper form to prevent injury and get the most good out of your workout. Add reverse crunches to your exercise routine today.
