Quick Tips For A Faster Workout Session

short-time

One of the biggest complaints that many people use as a means for an excuse as to why they skipped their workout (yet again!) is that they just didn’t have time.

There’s no question about it, we all lead very busy lifestyles nowadays, but this does not mean that your fitness program has to fall by the wayside because of it.

All you need to do is learn some of the most effective methods to use to produce a shorter, but still highly intense workout session that will bring you the results you’re looking for.

It really isn’t all that hard as long as you educate yourself on a few different principles and then put together a game plan for action.

Let’s take a look at what you need to know.

Use Compound Movements Only

First, when it comes to your exercise selection, drop all isolation exercises out of the picture. While these exercise can be an okay addition to a workout program when you have time, when you’re running against the clock, they simply don’t provide enough benefits to be included.

Leave them for a time period when you aren’t in a rush to get in and out of the gym.

Instead, choose movements such as squats, rows, deadlifts, bench press, shoulder presses, and lunges. These are far more effective.

Superset

Next, when putting your workout program together, superset as often as possible. This means pairing two exercises immediately back to back with each other.

So for example, do a squat and then do a bench press. Do a lunge and then do a pull-up. Doing so is not only going to save time, but also enhance your metabolic rate more as well, allowing you to see top results from the workout session.

Protein Powder Versus Whole Food

As you go about your diet plan, you may start to wonder about the real different between protein powder and whole food. Different people have different views on protein powder.

Some people feel that it is best to avoid it because they don’t think of it as real food. Others think it’s a great way to meet their protein requirements.

So who’s right? What’s the real deal with protein powder?

Let’s look at the main points that you need to keep in mind when comparing the two.

The Calorie Content

The first thing that you need to think about is the calorie content. One nice thing about protein powder is that it is very calorie controlled as most scoops are between 100-120 calories. So regardless of what brand you use, you should be taking in this much.

With food sources of protein, you’ll need to get into weighing and measuring it each time you cook and different protein sources do vary in their total calorie content.

For instance, 3 oz. of steak or salmon has more calories than 3 oz. of turkey or white fish, so you’ll need to account for this difference.

There is a bit more tracking involved when it comes to whole food.
