Do you wish you could turn heads wherever you go? Simply wishing will do you no good. However, flaunting a well toned body can get you loads of compliments from the female crowd. Body toning focuses entirely on lowering fat mass and increasing muscle mass instead.
For this, resistance training exercises play a more important role as compared to exercises like biking, jogging, walking or running which are more of aerobic exercises focusing on weight loss. Check out these body toning exercises which will increase muscle mass in men.
Effective Body Toning Exercises For Men
Push Ups help tone your chest, shoulders and triceps in the same go. Lie on a flat surface, face down with hands beneath your shoulders.
Bend your elbows and raise the upper part of your body, using your hands to support the body weight. Once you extend your arms completely, slowly lower your body back to the floor. Repeat 10 times.
Stand straight with feet as wide as your shoulders and your hands by your sides. Hold a dumbbell in each hand. Bring your hands in front of your chest, parallel to the ground, palms facing inwards.
At the same time lower your body slowly by bending your knees, till your thighs appear parallel to the ground. Come back to the starting position and repeat the entire set 10 more times. This is a great exercise for toning the muscles of your arms, upper legs, lower back and buttocks.
Lie on your back, on the floor, preferably on a rubber mat. Keep your knees bent with the soles of your feet touching the floor. Keep your hands behind your head.
With the help of your abdominal muscles, slowly pull your shoulders above the ground. Lower your shoulders gradually back to the floor and repeat the same sequence 8 – 10 times.
Stand straight on the floor with hands by your sides. Hold dumbbells in both your hands. Now stand on your toes, raising your heels in the process.
Lift your heels, hold till the count of two and bring your feet down again. This exercise works well towards toning your calf muscles, the ones on the back of your lower legs.
Lower Leg Curls
Lie down on the floor, flat on your stomach. Raise your left leg and bring your left heel towards your bottom. Stay there till the count of 3 and draw your heel back towards the floor. Repeat the same with your right leg as well. Perform at least 8 repetitions of this sequence.
Use a pull up bar for this exercise, one that is free standing and good at supporting your body weight. Place your hands on the bar and raise your body till your chin is above the bar.
Slowly bring your body back to the ground. Chin ups are good for toning your upper back and shoulder muscles. Each one of these exercises must be performed on a regular basis to keep your entire body toned and well built.
Lower your shoulders gradually back to the floor and repeat the same sequence 8 – 10 times.
