Is there an online site that gives free workout tips?

I'm looking for a site that gives free workout tips and tips on getting abs. I don't need a so-called "quick trick" that will supposedly get me a six-pack in 2 days. I just want tips on how to work out and what to eat to get in shape.

    If you want to stay in shape, you need to adopt healthy eating habits and make exercise a part of your daily life.

    How to start?

    Choose exercises you enjoy according to your fitness level. Aerobics exercises move the muscles fairly continuously and strengthen the heart and lungs. Examples of such activities are brisk walking, jogging, aerobic dancing, swimming, badminton, cycling and football.

    If you have not exercised for a long time or just started, start slowly and increase gradually over a period of 3 to 6 weeks.

    For those who are above 35 years old, overweight, or have medical problems, you need to check with a medical doctor before you embark on an exercise programme.

    Frequency or How often?

    Exercise for at least 20 minutes, 3 times a week or more

    Intensity and duration?

    Do exercise until you perspire and breathe deeply without getting breathless. You should be able to talk or whistle while exercising.

    Do warm up and stretch for at least 5 minutes before exercise. Also not to forget to cool down and stretch after exercise.

    you want to be ripped, go to bodybuilder.com. eating is more important than workout for abs. this is because no matter how strong your abs are, no one can see them if it's covered by a thick layer of lard.
