    I remember when I used to go to a gym my trainer told me that good exercises are bike and step, but in his opinion what gives you resistance and helps not to build one of those all muscles bodies is rowing.

    Swimming is the best total body workout there is. Both aerobic and anaerobic. Rowing is also great. Biking is working your aerobic but only the lower portion of the anaerobic. Step workout is pretty good if you are using dumbells while doing it. Remember aerobic and anaerobic are of two different natures.

    swimming is a great workout but it depends on which storke. butterfly will dramaticlly improve your arms and shoulders. for a total body workout breaststroke is the best stroke.

    Running is great to do. Dancing is probably the best workout you can have.

    Step aerobics are exactly what it sounds like. It is an aerobic routine that utilizes a step of varying heighths to increase the intensity. It can be used to increase aerobic and/or anaerobic capacity, depending on the format of the instructor. Most often it is used in an aerobic format.

    Another way to increase your anaerobic capacity while increasing your "wind" is to run wind sprints. Mark off a 20-40 yard space, then start by performing 5-10 pushups, pop up and sprint to the other end. At the other end perform 5-10 crunches, pop up and sprint to the other end. After performing 5 sets down and back, take a break for 10 minutes, then repeat.

    I know of several college and pro football teams that use this method as well as a large number of fighters.

    Hello, Another thing you can add to this is the simple "jump roping" ...and it many style and speeds. Try a few minutes a day, than work up to 30 minutes!

    My son's High School wrestling team coach likes them to do alot of wind sprints at high speeds.

    Running intervals works wonders for anaerobic endurance and recovery time.

    I used to do 100m intervals and 200m intervals - though not on the same day (God forbid!)

    the workouts are short, sweet, and will kick your ***
