If you’re ready to train smarter you can see dynamic improvement for your efforts. While you need to spend time exercising, sometimes less is more when it comes to results, but that’s only when you use the right type of exercise. There are now conflicting studies on whether endurance exercising that lasts over two hours is good for you, but nobody disputes the fact that inactivity is bad. There are also many studies that show that not all exercising is equal when it comes to weight loss or benefits. Some are simply better than others.
High intensity circuit training can benefit you in a shorter amount of time.
High intensity circuit training is short cycles of movement, normally over thirty seconds. You switch form one type of exercise to another with only a short rest in between the two. Not only does this type of exercising get you out of the gym quicker, you’ll also experience more weight loss, since it burns more calories during and even after exercising. It only makes sense to use this type of exercise, say over a treadmill, when you get more results in a shorter time frame.
Learn to do each exercise correctly to maximize the benefits.
No matter what type of exercising you do, if you do the exercise incorrectly, it probably won’t benefit your body nearly as much. Even worse, it can lead to injury. That’s why many people use the services of a personal trainer who not only shows them how to do each exercise, but then watches them to insure they do it correctly.
Use exercising techniques that give you multiple types of exercising.
At one time, everyone exercised different parts of their body on different days and then did endurance or cardio training on the off days. Today, if you train right, you can get a good cardio workout while you’re also developing more flexibility, strength and balance. TRX suspension training, for instance, does all that at once. It works on building core strength, while also increasing muscle endurance and building core muscles. You can combine it with other types of training, such as spinning for a super overall effect.
Exercising should be fun. Sure, it can be tough and rugged, but it should be fun. Not only will you do it more often, you’ll be more dedicated and tend to put more heart into your exercise time.
Smarter workouts vary the type of exercises you do so you build all muscle groups.
When you workout smarter, you increase the intensity of the exercise as your fitness level improves.
Working out smarter can mean you’ll get your exercising done quicker, which is great for busy people. They can work exercising into their schedule easier.
