How To Get The Most From Your Training Programme

Going to the gym is one thing, but doing it right is another!

Here are my tips on how to get the best out of your training Programme.

 1. Be Realistic.

Don’t go all out and try hit the gym 5-6 days a week. You have work and social commitments, you’ll tire out, grow frustrated and the first thing to go will be the gym. Pick 2 -3 days per week and commit to training on those days.

2. Don’t Skip Training.

Consistency is key. Do not back out of training just because its easier to sit at home and watch tv.

You will not regret exercising.

3. Time Your Rest

One big mistake people make is they take too long of a rest between sets. For a greater fat burning effect rest 30 – 60 seconds between sets. The longer you rest the less of a fat burn you will get.

4. Focus

Concentrate on the task at hand. You’re in the gym for a reason. Stay focused and work hard. Don’t get lost in What’sApp, Facebook, Gmail or Youtube and don’t get caught talking to somebody mid workout. You’ll greatly decrease the effectiveness of your programme.

5. Keep It Short

There’s no need for Marathon gym sessions. Set aside 30 – 45 minutes for your workout and go hard at it. If you can train for 90 minutes then Id argue that you’re not working hard enough. Go in, work hard and go home.
