When it comes to workout plans for women, it can be challenging to decide what is the best one for you. There are many factors to consider including what your goals are and how much time you can realistically commit to each training session. You also want to be sure that you can fit the plan into your schedule and that it is something you will actually stick with and enjoy!
It is important to remember that the most successful and healthiest method of exercise is working out all major muscle groups. This is not only great for muscular development but also helps to burn fat and increase your overall strength. A full body workout plan for women will target each major muscle group a couple of times a week with 3 to 4 sets for each exercise.
While the majority of workout plans focus on one or two specific body parts, most women are looking to transform their entire bodies. While it is possible to get the results you desire with just a few isolated exercises, it will be more difficult and take longer to reach your goal. For this reason, a well-rounded workout routine is essential for getting the body you have always wanted.
There are several different ways to structure your workout routine depending on your goals and fitness level but a 3-day full body workout plan is a great option for most people. Many bodybuilders and athletes prefer a 5 day split where they target each individual muscle group on a separate day but for the average person that is juggling work, family, and other commitments this is not ideal. A 3 day workout allows you to target all muscle groups but gets progressively harder each time and also varies the target muscles for each workout so that your body does not become over-trained and can recover between sessions.
A female full body workout plan will also include double-duty exercises that target multiple muscle groups in one movement. This is great for saving time as it allows you to train more muscles in a shorter amount of time which will result in more calories burned and sculpted muscles in less time!
Most workouts that only target one muscle group tend to be short in duration and low in intensity which can cause fatigue in your muscles before your next session. A good full body workout will last between 1 and 1.5 hours and will provide a decent amount of training volume to help you achieve your desired results.
Trainers top tip: Using compound movements, or multi-joint exercises, will allow you to perform a high number of reps with moderate weight. This will enable you to achieve more muscle growth with a similar workout time as a higher rep and lower intensity workout.
The following workout will target the entire body with a good emphasis on the glutes and thighs because these are areas where women tend to accumulate more unwanted fat. This workout will also focus on high-intensity exercises that will help you burn more calories and reduce your fat quickly.
