Getting the most out of your workout

May 9, 2018 by  

It sure would be great if any time spent in the gym delivered results, but the truth is that all workouts were not created equally.

There are techniques for getting the most out of each exercise and by utilizing these techniques you’ll achieve quicker and more noticeable results.

Check out the following 5 Smart Workout Tips to avoid danger and to get fit fast:

Smart Workout Tip 1: Use Challenging Resistance

In order to get the most from each rep it’s important to challenge your muscles, and not to simply go through the motions. If you are able to complete 15-20 repetitions easily, then the weight is too light. On the flip side, if you aren’t able to perform an exercise through its full range of motion, and find yourself cheating on form, then the weight is too heavy.

The correct weights will feel challenging by your last few repetitions but won’t force you to sacrifice form.

Smart Workout Tip 2: Change Up Your Routine

You may have noticed that most people do the same exercises each time they visit the gym. Maybe you’ve been doing the same exercise routine as long as you can remember—if it isn’t broken then don’t fix it, right?

The truth is that exercise routines have expiration dates, and that is the date that they begin to lose their effectiveness. As a rule of thumb never use the same routine for more than 4 weeks. In our training studio almost every workout will be different from the previous one.

Smart Workout Tip 3: Always Warm Up

This one always drives me crazy! Most people consider warm up time to be wasted time—they’d rather jump right into the heart of the routine. What they don’t realize is that a good warm up will allow you to perform at a higher intensity, which means greater results. Don’t EVER skip your warm-up.

The point of a warm up is to increase your muscle temperature. This increases blood flow, muscle contraction and reduces muscle resistance. Your warm up should last 5-10 minutes.

Smart Workout Tip 4: Use Proper Form

Gyms are filled with people performing exercises with bad form. The two biggest reasons are that you aren’t concentrating on the exercise, or you’re trying to lift weight that is too heavy. Lifting with improper form almost always results in injury.

Take the time to achieve proper form, by doing so you’ll avoid injury and will reap the full benefit from each exercise.

Smart Workout Tip 5: Never Workout Alone

People who exercise alone are less challenged, less accountable and typically see fewer results. It makes sense, doesn’t it? Why rush to the gym if no one is there waiting for you? Why push yourself if no one is watching? Exercising alone is a recipe for disaster.
