Find The Workout Routine Right For You

This feature on three free workout routines for women has been one of our most successful articles on this weight loss and training health blog with over a million views and 500 comments and I have made an effort to reply to each and every one!

You will find beginner, intermediate and advanced versions of these free workout routines for women along with recommended sets of the exercises. If you are wondering how many repetitions to do of each exercise that depends on your goals.

If you want to increase your cardiovascular levels aim for 14-16, if you are wanting to lose fat aim for 12-14 and if you want to gain lean muscle aim for 8-10. 

*I have placed a resource in case you need to reference the exercises at the bottom of this article.

I’ve trained many women (beginner and advanced) who had given up on one workout after another until I introduced them to these workout routines. 

Regardless of whether they are fit or unfit and haven’t exercised regularly, I always start them off with the beginner where we focus on form of your movements, and then lead into reducing rest time so we can really get the heart pumping and incinerate that stubborn belly fat.

Now let’s breakdown the different workout routines…

Conclusion

Supplements to Speed Up Your Workout Routine Results

I’ve heard a lot of women say they will never take supplements because they believe they can get everything from their diet, but unfortunately that is just not realistic.

Most of us place a very high level of expectation to place on the foods we get from the grocery store! But the sad news is that most of the foods we eat are not as fresh and nutritious as we think they are.  Let alone anything that is processed, canned, packaged, etc.

Supplementation is your friend, not your enemy and they simply work to fill in the nutrients you are missing out of your diet every day. These are my highly most recommended supplements to try. 

Your Ultimate Workout Routine Goal!

Whatever people tell you just ignore that right now and push forward with these workouts.  I absolutely have no doubt you will see results quickly, and that will fill better than any misinformation others keep feeding us! 

Be patient and kind to yourself, after several weeks you will be ecstatic with results from these 3 free workout routines for women.
