Whether you’re someone who has been disappointed in your results at the gym lately or are someone who is just always looking to push themselves, as always piece of advice out there we don’t know which can benefit us.
While we tend to lean on our friends, family, of people we see at the gym for fitness advice we can all agree that the professionals are going to be the best sources of this type of information. You are some of the most effective ways in which you can improve results to seeing at the gym with a few minor tweaks to your routine.
1.Combine Cardio and Strength Training
One easy and effective way in which you can increase the results are seeing from your exercise routine is to combine some cardiovascular exercise into your strength training routine. The easiest way to do this is to do some in term work in between your strength training sets to keep your heart rate and elevated which provides your body with the cardiovascular benefits.
This is essentially the idea behind HIIT training, where you are exercising at a moderate to intense rate. This keeps your heart rate at an elevated level throughout the entire exercise which allows you to get a cardiovascular benefits from it in a short period of time.
Keeping your heart rate elevated throughout the exercise is not only key to gaining more cardiovascular endurance but is also key to keeping the amount of calories are burning throughout exercise high is well. Using this technique will not only help you to get more efficient at your routine, but will help you to drop a few pounds as well.
2.Focus Where it Counts
I can tell you how many people I see that the gym many of them being a long-term experienced people who do not revolve their routine around the right exercises. While you can get a better physique by doing isolation exercises alone it will be a much slower and more daunting processe and then if you were to focus primarily on compound exercises.
Deadlifts and squats tend to be two exercises that many people are deficient in which can hurt not only their gains but progression in other areas as well. And being able to do a proper squat especially is essential and not just only developing new strength but developing a proper balance and dexterity as well.
If you’re someone that very rarely if at all does squats or deadlifts, you should not only look to start incorporating them into your routine but you may want to do so on a regular basis.
As long as you’re not listing too heavily here you can in fact to do different variations of these exercises almost every day if you wish to do so. The more often you do the quicker ease the lagging body parts are going to catch up with the rest of your muscle groups, so to do so would be in your best interest.
3. Work to Failure
On other huge mistake that many people make when it comes to their routine is that they don’t work to failure, which makes them miss out on plenty of potential gains. Working yourself to failure is a one definitive way that you know that your exercise has been effective-you are worked to exhaustion.
Why many of us are aware of this we don’t follow through because of two major reasons: one being that we’re too lazy to do so and the second being that were too afraid to do so. The first reason is no excuse however if you fall into category number to your best served in working out with a partner who can spot and help you.
Another option is you can use machines such as the Smith machine and other similar machines which have a safety mechanism on them so that you can work to failure without worrying about the bar or other piece of equipment crashing down on yourself.
4. Diet Supersedes Routine
Lastly but certainly not least you need to always remember that’s you’re never going to be able to how to do your meals with exercise. What we mean by this is that you can only burn a certain amount of calories throughout your exercise which essentially is a limiting factor.
On the other hand someone can eat an additional 1,000 calories with these are racing all that effort and more you put in the gym. Not only are you not going to be able to burn off all the calories you’re consuming, it’s going to hurt your gains in the process.
Make sure to focus your diet around whole foods and lean and proteins which are going to best help you build a muscle without adding additional pounds of fat in the process.
