Tips on Designing Your Own Program (part one)

There is no substitue for a professionally desgned program for the gym.  But if you consider yourself experienced in the gym and insist on planning your own training routine, make sure to keep your program well rounded but specific towards whatever goals you might have laid out for yourself. Here are some of the main components to designing your program and deciding how to spend your time in the gym:

One: Cardiovascular training should be well balanced with some high intensity and some low-moderate intensity.  Just like your resistance training, your body will adapt to stress if the same stress is applied consistently so it is important to diversify your cardio.  Use incline and speed intervals to keep your body guessing. 

Two: Muscle conditioning needs to focus on exercises for upper body, lower body, core: including abdominals, sides and lower back, as well as full body workouts including circuits.  When choosing your specific exercises you must understand the fundamentals; understand what the function of each muscle does to choose proper exercises.
