What are the best workouts to do in the least amount of time

by | Jun 8, 2020 | Workout

We all want to get the most out of our workouts and frankly we have a need for instant gratification. Follow these steps to get the most out of your workouts. 

Do Compound Movements

When doing strength training, do compound moves to save time. For example, squat with a bicep curl or lunge with a tricep extension. This enables you to do more moves in less time. So basically, choose exercises that work multiple body parts simultaneously.

Increase The Intensity

Short workouts are all about high intensity.  If you’re pressed for time, do a higher intensity workout to really get the bang for your buck. It’s gotta be 100% effort, all in! This might mean running as fast as you can even for just one minute, as long as you’re pushing yourself your hardest.

Interval Training

Try a more crossfit approach to working out. Alternate between active and rest periods that will allow your body to recover, without cooling down.

Ignore Distractions

Put your phone on do not disturb! One of the number one time wasters in the gym is checking your social media or getting caught up with work emails. 

Have A Workout Plan

There is nothing worse than showing up to the gym and not having a plan in place. Then you spend 20 minutes plus figuring out what you will even work that day! We can help you there! Our team of personal trainers can get you set up for success and take the guesswork out of your workouts. 

Need a consultation? Give us a call and we can set that up for you! 

Overall, it takes hard work and dedication to see your goals achieved. So push hard and remember, it all starts at ONE.
