5 best workouts for men
- Jumping Jacks
Cardio exercises are often looked down upon as they are not targeted at a body muscle group. But their quality of getting one’s blood pumping and increasing oxygen consumption and circulation cannot be denied. Along with the benefits of faster weight loss and making heart muscles stronger, cardio exercises like jumping jacks are an important addition to your workout routine. Workouts like these are made more comfortable only with proper gym wear for men.
How to do it:
Stand straight with your feet together and hands on your sides. Make sure that your knees touch each other and your shoulders are relaxed. Jump to a comfortable height while raising your arms above your head, forming a ‘V’ shape. Jump back to your starting position and repeat.

They say ‘you do not know how long a minute is until you spend a minute in a plank’. Planks are often touted as the most deceptive exercise as its simplicity is no match for its toughness. It requires a steady core that lets you balance your weight across your limbs for the duration of the blank. Along with the core, your biceps also undergo a rigorous workout in this position.
How to do it:
Get into a push up position. You could rest your bodyweight with your elbows bent at a 90 degree keeping your body weight on your forearms. Or you choose to do a high plank with your palms straight on the floor, and a straight orientation from shoulders to wrists. Ensure your body forms a straight line from your head to feet. Hold on to the position as long as you can. Remember to breathe in and out deeply and engage your core for the best results.

- Cross Crunches
This one’s a modification of the usual crunches. Normal crunches are known to target only the ab muscles and can help in toning of the upper ab muscles. Cross crunches combine this aspect with the toning of oblique muscles too, which helps the body be more agile and flexible. Using appropriate gym wear for men is necessary to hold proper form in this workout for men.
How to do it:
Lie flat on your back. Bend your knees with feet flat on the floor. Place both the hands loosely behind your head with elbows bent, making sure that the hands don’t aid your head or neck. Now, bring your right shoulder and elbow across your body towards the left side. At the same time, bring up your left knee towards your left shoulder. Try to touch your knee with your elbow. Go back to the original position and repeat the same with the left elbow and alternate.

Thigh muscles are the biggest muscles in the human body and are hence the toughest to tone. Squats target these muscles to aid in weight loss while strengthening them. Many squat variations like plie squats also target the calf muscles and enable elongation and stretching of the leg. Exercises for men like these need comfortable gym clothes for good flexibility.
How to do it:
Start with standing straight with your feet hip width apart. Let your hands be on your waist or raised parallel to the floor, with your shoulders back. Bend at your waist as if you were sitting in a chair, making sure that your knees do not go beyond your toes. Hold the position for a few seconds and return to the starting position. Repeat.

Lunges are a favourite stretching exercise. When coupled with a jump, it can be a great weight loss workout too. It enables great flexibility in the hip muscles while lengthening the inner thigh muscles. Lunges are known to improve the one of your core and thighs, along with the overall body flexibility. Like with most stretching exercises, lunges too require a good quality sportswear for men.
How to do it:
Start by standing with arms on your waist or parallel to the floor. Raise one leg and keep it a step ahead of you such that it forms 90 degrees with the floor. At the same time, make sure your other leg forms 90 degrees along the floor as shown in the picture above. Hold this position for a few seconds and return to the starting position. Repeat with the other leg and alternate.
