Get The Most Out Of Your Workout

If you’ve been working out for any length of time, you’ve probably heard plenty of voices telling you how to get the most out of your workout…

And at this point, you’ve probably established a plan of attack when you head into the gym each morning.

But here’s the deal…

Getting stuck in your ways can cost you.

In fact, I’m convinced that most people you see in the gym are so set on what’s worked best for them over the months and years that they’ve unknowingly settled for good workouts when they could really have great workouts.

Muscle Building

Does that sound familiar at all?

Maybe you’ve found yourself in the same boat…

You’re in a pattern of working out the same way, all the time…

But with time comes the importance of change…

And ultimately, if you’ve got the “same old, same old’” mindset towards your workouts, you can be assured that your workouts are making you pay, instead of the other way around.

So today’s the day for you to change things up a bit.

Here are a few tweaks that you can take to the gym with you today in order to get the most out of your workout.

1. Cut Your Workout Time In Half

Okay, if you’re working out for 20 minutes a day, I’m not necessarily recommending you take this one literally…

But the concept is the same: No matter how long you workout, you want to be as efficient as possible, and most of us could stand to spend less time lollygagging and more time getting work done.

I’m sure that when you started working out, you researched every exercise routine in the book…

And most of them (if not all of them) probably clocked in at anywhere between 45 minutes to 1.5 hours per workout.

But there’s a problem…

Have you ever heard the old adage, “Too much of a good thing can turn into a bad thing?”

Well, that wise saying perfectly describes the dissonance of 45-90 minute workouts.

When you spend a lengthy time in the gym, you block muscle-building hormone production, shrivel up your testosterone levels, and torch muscles and joints with inflammation.

Listen… Unless you’re taking steroids, 60-minute workouts for 5 days/week are only going to exhaust your muscles. 

Have you ever spun a nickel on a countertop before?

If you have, you know that at first, the nickel will spin and spin with no end in sight…

But then, it’ll gradually start moving slower…

And then it’ll wobble…

And then it’ll fall over…

The same thing happens when we train at a frequency that we weren’t meant to train at…

If you don’t rest often enough, you’ll soon find yourself slowing down, getting wobbly, and eventually, down for the count… Except in your scenario, no one can pick you up and start spinning you on the countertop again.

I recommend you shorten the length of your workouts and cut down how many days you hit the gym (keep it to 4 days at the most).

Main Takeaway: Shorten up your workouts if you want to get the most out of them.

2. Be Cautious Of Your Joints

Your joints matter…

If you forget about your joint health, you can forget about longevity in the gym.

Think about this with me…

You need your joints to be healthy if you’re going to perform at your peak in the gym. Joint discomfort can ruin your workouts and joint damage can downright keep you from working out altogether…

Lifting weights

So if you want to get the most of your workouts, and be healthy enough to workout for the long haul, you need to pay special attention to not only your muscle, but also those hinges between your muscles that make muscle building possible.

Here’s the deal…

The heavier the weights you lift, the higher risk you have for injury. It’s really simple. And despite what you’ve probably been told, you don’t need to lift as heavy as possible in order to get the most out of your workouts…

In fact, unless you’re competing in a Strongman competition, you don’t need to worry about putting your joints under massive amounts of stress…

There are better ways to build eye-catching muscle without putting your joints in harm’s way.

The secret to building shirt-stretching muscle is dependent on one primary concept: Muscle activation…

The more muscle fibers you activate in a given set, the more response you’ll get from them. So instead of trying to throw up heavy weight, use moderate weights that tax out your muscles.

Main Takeaway: Lower the weight and increase the intensity of your sets to protect your joints and get the best muscle growth.

3. Increase Testosterone

If you want to get the most out of your workouts, you need to keep tabs on your testosterone levels…

See, for guys, testosterone is an essential aspect of packing on muscle…

And those common 5-day a week marathon workouts are causing men everywhere to leave testosterone on the table.

The truth is that long workouts and too many gym sessions actually lower testosterone and force the male body into what’s called a catabolic state…

Or in other words, the anti-muscle building state.

This means that you can hit the gym all you want, but your progress is going to be less than optimal, and your performance in the bedroom will be less than satisfactory as well…

And eventually, you can kiss both your muscle gains and your great sex life goodbye.

So when you plan your workouts for the week, you need to keep your testosterone levels in mind.

The best way to do that, circles back to point #1. You need to shorten your workouts and you need to take more days off from the gym.

The sweet spot for your workouts should be somewhere between 30-40 minutes at the most, while only frequenting the gym 3-4 days a week.

Main Takeaway: Spend less time in the gym (minutes and days) in order to keep your testosterone levels high and your muscle building efforts effective.
