There are plenty of ways to get your body to look the way you want it to look. Sometimes the answer is a plastic or cosmetic surgery procedure. But sometimes you hold the power in your hand. Using exercise to sculpt your body is one of the more reliable and most effective ways to get the body you want. But that doesn’t necessarily mean it’s one of the easiest. Exercise takes dedication and discipline—but, in most cases, the results are well worth the work you put in, especially when you know that you have yourself to thank for them.
There are, in fact, many ways that you can exercise, and your approach will vary depending on what your desired outcome may be. Your approach will also vary depending on where you’re starting from. If you’ve been in training for a long time, you have a better “starting” spot. However, exercise is something that just about everyone is capable of, and it’s a great way to begin to gain some control over the size and shape of your body (it’s worth noting, of course, that total control is impossible).
There are several main categories of exercise, each of which is explored in more depth on their own pages, below:
Less than five percent of adults in the United States get 30 minutes of activity a day
