Whatever your reason for getting fit (or fitter), it’s worth it. Maybe you do it for the buzz, maybe the health benefits. A slimmer waistline probably wouldn’t hurt, either. In any case, the first step is usually the hardest (unless, of course, you’re doing burpees).
We can’t help you with the motivation but we can with the workout plans. Below you’ll find a training directory to get you started, whatever your goal. The workouts are split by goal and by body part. Find the one that fits your athletic ambitions, and don’t forget to stretch.
Let’s be honest, losing fat is one of the strongest motivators nudging us to the squat rack, but it’s not all about aesthetics.

If you want to get rid of man boobs, a beer belly or any other unwanted blubber, then you probably need to burn that fat.
Of all the reasons to set foot in a gym or pick up a dumbbell, increasing strength is undoubtedly the most beneficial. From lifting heavy to accessory muscle work, building strength is key in that fit goal plan of yours.

Workout Plans That Target Specific Body Parts
A man with broad shoulders can do more than wear the hell out of a suit.

Build strength here and you’ll find your posture is better, arm exercises are easier and, yes, you’ll bag a V-shaped torso in the process.
Whatever its primitive, possibly evolutionary origin, the belief exists that big biceps matter. So if you want bigger, stronger arms, incorporate more pulling exercises into your workout routine.
If you want a beach-ready physique, you need to put your back into it. Quite literally. Stop spending all that time on your chest and start doing back exercises which not only help fill out your T-shirt sleeves but also protect you from injury and fix your posture.
