3 Ways to Maximize Your Time in the Gym

Are you putting your gym time to proper use? If not, here are a few different tips to help you do so.

 

Most of us don’t have two to three hours every day to spend in the gym. We all have busy lives, so when we do go to the gym, we need to use our time effectively in order to get a good workout without having to waste too much time.

I recently came across an article from Ace Fitness that gave some great tips on how you can maximize your time in the gym. You can read the full article here, but here are the three best tips that we gathered for you:

 

"Complex training involves combining resistance and plyometric training."

 

1. Focus on foundation lifts. In other words, focus on the lifts that work your major muscle groups. They can be broken down into four different categories: Bilateral lower-body exercises (squats and deadlifts), unilateral lower-body exercises (lunges and step-ups), upper-body exercises (dumbbell bench press, dips), and core exercises (planks and reverse crunches).

 

2. Complex training. This is when you combine resistance and plyometric training. Examples of complex training include squat jumps, box jumps, and plyometric push-ups.

 

3. Recovery as a training tool. Recovery is an active physiological process that plays a key role in conditioning, building muscle, and performance. Active recovery could involve jogging in place or dynamic stretching between sets. Recovery helps keep your metabolic rate up, which improves cardiovascular fitness and increases the utility of exercise for weight loss.

 

By following these tips, you’ll fare much better at using the time you have in the gym each day to the fullest. If you have any questions for us in the meantime, don’t hesitate to give us a call or send us an email. We look forward to hearing from you soon.
