Top Workout Lists go in line with the Top Movement/Exercise lists with the main difference being the use of workouts or workout set schemes in leu of single exercises. Again, you could base them on objectives, difficulty, body part, or popularity.
Everyone loves to see top movement/exercise lists, even if there is no way that they’re going to agree with your opinion. All you have to do is select a focus and create a list of 3 to 10 exercise that you think fit it best. This could be objective based (The Top 5 Strength Enhancing Exercises), difficulty based (The Top 8 Most Difficult Movements), body part focused (The Top 3 Exercise for Building Your Glutes), or popularity based (The Top Kettlebell Exercises You Haven’t Tried Yet).
Transformation pieces do really well online, especially if you have before/after pics and a compelling back story. The typically go, “I was fat and unhappy, then I found kettlebells/pilates/yoga/etc, and it changed my life.” They can be very inspiring if they’re written correctly, but again, the pics will make them way more effective if you have them.
You can write quite a bit about a single ingredient if you really think about it. What health benefits does it have? What are its top five uses? Where did the ingredient come from? By doing a little bit of research you could break down every aspect of a single ingredient and create a optimized article in the process. In addition, you’ll be able to link that single ingredient to all of the recipes that you created to use it.
You can never go wrong with recipes, especially when you combine them with an attractive picture of the food. These get tons of visits and the food pics perform extremely well on all social media channels, especially Instagram, Facebook, and Pinterest.
You don’t always need a crazy amount of media (e.g. audio, video, photography, etc.) in order to create content. With Workout Graphics, all you need to do is create a graphic that contains a workout with a few instructions. Keep your style (e.g. logo placement, font, design elements, etc.) consistent, and you have a kick ass post for both your website and social media (especially Instagram and Pinterest).
People love when you keep things simple, and that is especially true when it comes to exercise form. By doing a simple series of pictures or a short video, you can quickly show the wrong way and the right way to do different movements.
Exercise Infographics take a little bit more effort than your motivational graphics, but they are worth it. These images are very popular for social media platforms, especially Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest.
Motivational graphics are easy to create, get tons of hits, and will give your audience an insight into you and your brand. They aren’t good for SEO, but they work well with every other platform.
Mistake Correction articles are easy to write and could be as simple as identifying a common error in a single exercise, then explaining how to fix it. They can feature videos or pics, or be simply written.
Including numbers in your content is an excellent way to get both SEO and viral traffic. This could be a list of exercises (e.g. Top 5 Core Exercises), workouts (e.g. Top 3 Workout Sets for Conditioning), or techniques (e.g. The #1 Implement for Core Strength).
Challenges are an excellent way to engage your audience while also providing useful information. Think in terms of, “I bet you can’t do [blank].” They can be workout based (e.g. 50 reps for time) or movement based (e.g. perform a Pistol Squat).
