Gyms and other workout areas are often busy with people trying to become the best version of themselves. With so much going on it can be easy to become distracted and lose track of your own goals. Between work, family, friends and sleep there isn’t a whole lot of time left in the day which is why it is critical to make the most of every second you spend in the gym, at the park or on the footpath exercising.
We know that efficient exercise will get you one step closer to your IsaLife™, so we’ve come up with some handy tips to help you make the most of your workouts.
Schedule Your Session
Having a plan prepared before you step foot into the gym or out the front door is a sure-fire way to minimise any wasted time. As the old saying goes, if you fail to prepare you prepare to fail, so take some time to create a routine and stick to it! That way you’ll spend less time thinking and more time doing.
Set Your Priorities
Each session should have a specific focus. If you want to work a particular part of your body or try a new workout style, be sure to do those at the beginning of your session. Once you power through those exercises everything that follows should be an accessory to compliment them, that way if you do run out of time at least you were able to complete the bulk of your session.
Superset to Success
Supersets are probably the most common and effective method for getting through your workout without sacrificing exercises and performance. Not only will you get the benefits of a strength workout, but you could also feel the effects of a cardiovascular workout too!
Restrict Your Rest
Are you someone who checks their phone in between sets? There’s a good chance you’re having a longer rest than you need and are adding unnecessary time to your workouts. Make sure your rest periods are timed! You can also make your rest time more productive by using it to stretch or have a roll on a foam massage roller.
