Having a regular exercise routine is important for everyone, not just for the benefits of getting to look good and feel good, but for the long term health bonuses, you will gain from keeping your body healthy and fit. There are many workouts that are designed for different reasons, based on body type, fitness goals, or exercise style preference – and it can be hard to figure out what the best options are for you. Men generally have a higher body and muscle mass than women, meaning that the way that they work out will be a little different. This article will look into the best workout routine for men (in general) if you want to boost your fitness and strength.

What Is The Best Routine?

Many fitness experts seem to agree that the best workout routine for men looking to increase their fitness, is a strength training program that works specific areas of the body on different days; thereby working the entire body over a week of the program. We are going to look at two different routines that are designed for different fitness levels, and see why these work.

  1. At Home Routine

This style of routine is for those who do not have time to go to the gym, want a change of scenery, or would prefer to workout in the comfort of their own home. With the availability of online workouts, it is easy to build a varying and challenging program with or without equipment. One workout program suggests that you follow a weekly routine (based on three days of activity) of:

  • Day 1: Legs, Shoulders, and Abs (e.g. squats, shoulder presses, lunges, upright rows, lateral raises, calf raises, and crunches)
  • Day 2: Chest and Back (e.g. floor press, dumbbell fly, dumbbell rows, pushups, and dumbbell pullovers)
  • Day 3: Arms and Arbs (e.g. bicep curls, tricep extensions, bench dips, and planks)

All of these exercises can be done by making use of only bodyweight resistance, with improvised weights, or with proper equipment. It would also be an absolutely great idea to add in some general cardio on other days of the week to ensure that you are getting a well-rounded workout experience.

  1. Area Specific Workout

This workout program style is about focusing on specific body areas on specific days – with a particular emphasis on the upper chest, lower lats, biceps, and calves. These areas are specifically mentioned because, according to some, these areas can be weak points for men. However, when they are focused on and defined, they can really transform a man’s physical look overall. Therefore, this style of workout is definitely more focused on your physical appearance and defining your look, so if this is your goal, then look for these more specified workouts.

One routine suggests that you follow a program of:

  • Day 1: Chest and Shoulders (e.g. bench presses, cable crossovers, wide-grip dips, Arnold presses, and lateral raises)
  • Day 2: Legs (e.g. Lying leg curls, squats, leg press, and deadlifts)
  • Day 3: Rest
  • Day 4: Back (e.g. dumbbell rows, deadlift, pulldowns, and dumbbell pullovers)
  • Day 5: Rest
  • Day 6: Arms and Abs (e.g. Dumbbell curls, v-bar pushdowns, bench dips, tricep extensions, sit-ups, and leg raises)
  • Day 7: Rest

As mentioned above, the second routine is more focused on building definition and tone versus the first’s goal of general overall health and fitness. Overall, the best workout for you is the one that can help you get to the goal that you are aiming for. You can always add more reps, increase your weekly workouts, and increase your weights as you improve, but it is important to start a sustainable and safe point for you now – and that can help carry you towards the person you are hoping to become.
