There are several basic workouts that should be used and combined, in order to create the most effective workout plan. There is cardio workout, which is all about increased fat reduction and creating lean muscles.

Muscle mass growth is stimulated with the help of lifting heavy weights, which requires a lot of strength, with exhaustion coming a lot quicker. An essential thing with lifting weights and keeping the muscle grow constant is raising the amount of lifted weights each time it is possible.
Most people that exercise, would like to have strong abdominal muscles. Increasing the strength of those muscles and toning them is not enough, but excessive fat tissue must be eliminated completely too. There are many exercises that affect the abdominal region. The most basic ones are sit ups, crunches and leg lifting exercises. Some experts would say that the lower abdominal area is most important area to exercise. This is because the abdomen generally accumulates more fat than any other part of the body and it might be even more emphasized in the lower part.
Leg lifting exercises are excellent for affecting the lower abdomen, and not only that, exercising lower abs will actually affect the entire abdomen, while this is not the case with exercises for upper and side abdomen.
