In our last blog we discussed some great time-saving techniques to help you stay on track with your nutrition goals. Today we’re ready to help you get the most out of your training!
1 – Minimize down time during your training session. Many exercises with opposing primary movers (ex: Pushups/Pullups) can be performed together as a super-set. Not only does this save time, but it also increases metabolic demand with little to no reduction in performance.
2 – Do not waste time performing exercise with minimal impact. Spending 20 minutes walking on a treadmill is not a good choice if you have limited time. If you bust your butt for 20 minutes doing compound movements not only will you get a better training effect, but also get about the same amount of walking just going back and forth between exercises.
3 – Have your workout clothes and gear ready to go ahead of time.
4 – Learn how to auto-regulate your program properly so that you can take advantage of days when you have more time, and condense programming on days with less time while still performing the adequate work needed for a positive training effect.
