When you divide your time between work, family and at least three social media channels and proper training…(enough) Especially when you’re busy during that training checking emails, checking out women and drinking protein shakes.
According to a survey of Men’s Health UK among 500 men, the average man is definitely a half hour at the lounging during his training. Sin of your (precious) time. Read how to make your workout more efficient, so you actually achieve your goals.
1. Give your thumbs a rest
Your average workout consists mainly of typing Whatsapp messages? Then ask yourself the following question: What am I doing in the gym ?! You’re wasting your valuable training time and gym subscription to something you could do anywhere in the world at any time of the day. Do yourself a favor and wait at least until your cooldown by touching your smartphone.
2. Find a workout buddy
According to the survey, most men are at least 10 percent of their time wasting waiting or re-installation of fitness equipment. So start looking for a partner, once you finish your set, he or she can begin with the claim and preparation of the next device.
3. Stop staring, focus on your stance
It is good to analyze the landscape in between your sets, but remain always a gentleman. Stop staring at that chick. You not only achieve quicker, but you also occurs less rapidly as a creep around.
4. Rest, but don’t be lazy
You will need to rest, but are your rest periods effectively? Too little rest is in fact not good for you. With a standard routine workout – say 3 sets of 8 to 12 repetitions, more than five exercises – you can rest 60 to 90 seconds after each exercise.
