Too many people wander about the gym or workout area without knowing whether their program is actually working or not. My advice is to always, always, always create and have a good plan. An exercise magazine workout is not what I would consider a "good plan".
When designing a quality workout protocol there are three main elements of a good workout to consider.
Progression- progression through movement patterns
Variety- help progression and keep the body challenged in different movement patterns
Precision- keep technique clean and accurate rep after rep no matter the movement
Then the workout according to time begins.
I've said it before and I'll say it again:
Russian Kettlebells are the single best piece of training equipment that will show you the most muscular strength and endurance, joint stability, cardiovascular strength and endurance, power, agility, coordination and simply the ultimate overall fitness conditioning that your body could ever receive. If there is one training piece of equipment that I can use for the rest of my life and never anything else again regardless if it was a sophisticated machine, tractor truck tire(for flipping), cables, ropes, dumbbells, barbells, medicine balls or whatever- the Kettlebell would be it! Kettlebells are, simply put, a tool. There are many tools out there and many roads to fitness. This is just one of those tools and will take you down a great, great road.

In order to get good at something you must practice, practice, consistently practice. The body (brain and nervous system) remembers actions that it repeatedly performs. In order to improve and get better at something that action must be repeated. If you want to be good at basketball you must throw the ball at the net thousands of times. If you want to be good at swimming you must get wet and perform the strokes for thousand of laps. If you want your body to get strong and fit then you must practice movements and protocols that will make you that way. You must keep it consistent and keep it constant.
