5 Ways to Maximise Each Training Session

Date: Mar 08, 2019   
Finding time for a gym session can be difficult to fit in during busy schedules. Here are some things you can do to take advantage of the time that you have in the gym to maximise your results.

Socialise Less
You can train much harder when your mouth is closed and your body is moving. If you find yourself doing more talking than working out, you might want to make more of an effort to keep your conversations to hi and bye.

Have a Plan
You should always have an idea of what you want to train when you enter the gym. If you don’t, then you are just going to wander from machine to machine without getting much accomplished. Pick a body part and train it to the fullest.

Put Down the Phone
There is no greater distraction from a workout than having your phone on you. Taking ten minutes from your workout to choose the best training montage music is not the best way to use your time.

Train with a Buddy
Finding a like-minded friend to train with will push your further in the gym than if you were just working out by yourself. A little competition while strength training or doing cardio will allow you to push yourself past the ordinary limits.

Take Less Time Between Sets

There is nothing more frustrating when strength training than having to wait for someone to finish with the bench press simply because they take five minutes between sets. If you really want to push yourself while working out, give yourself only a thirty-second break between sets when performing isolated muscle exercises and one-minute breaks when doing compound movement exercises that are working much more than one muscle group.
