I have enjoyed the long bank holiday weekend and having time to catch up on some sleep. While surfing, I found MuscleWiki. It is a really simple website where you can select the muscle groups you want to work on and it will show you the exercises you need to do. Exercise made easy! Read on to find out more.
Why is it different?
MuscleWiki homepage is a simple image of the various muscle groups you can work on. Simply select the muscle group and you can see exercises to help you work out that muscle group. Additionally, you don’t need much or any equipment.
Select the muscle group and then choose one of 5 types of exercises; stretches, bodyweight, dumbbells, kettlebells and barbell. This makes the site great for the home user who doesn’t have much space for lots of gym equipment.
You are presented with 4 exercises that are clearly graded with a difficulty level; beginner, intermediate, and advanced. The exercise videos are short and autoplay. Follow and match the movement safely. You can also follow the step-by-step, simple, short instructions. There is also a brief intro to the muscle group.
Want more exercises? Click more at the bottom of the page. Advanced skills? Know what you want to do? Click the directory link for all the site’s exercises and choose how to make up your routine. Exercise made easy!
And there’s more
Finally, if you want to know how many calories to consume to lose, gain or maintain weight, use the simple calorie counter. Enter your weight, height, age, and gender and whether you want to maintain, lose or gain weight. Helpfully, the calculator gives suggestions such as a 1lb increase, 0.5lb decrease, and so on. You can also select your planned exercise level.
Want to know how to make up those calories? Try the macro calculator tool. Carbohydrates, fats, and proteins can be calculated using the macro calculator tool.
Nana Knows Verdict
This website is easy to use. The pictures and instructions are really clear. I really love the simplicity of the MuscleWiki site and even better, it’s not littered with ads. It really does make exercise easy. All I have to do now is find the time to do some and get off the settee! Kettlebell where have you hidden?
It is also available in a range of languages. Maybe I should set my sister a challenge to see if she can follow the site in French. 🙂
