You’ve been eating right and exercising, trying to create a tight sexy body but you may not be getting the most out of your workouts or your time. Here are 7 simple tips to help you get more out of going to the gym.
Try wearing a heart rate monitor. Wearing a heart rate monitor can help you make sure you are hitting your goals and pushing yourself hard enough. It can give you a more accurate measure of the calories you actually burned during your workout so you can improve next time.
If you are going to the gym to socialize then you are going for the wrong reason. Stopping to chat even during your “rest” period will not only keep you in the gym longer it will also lower your heart rate and reduce the amount of calories you burn overall. Tell your buddies you will chat when your workout is done or meet up with that hottie you just met for a protein shake after. Work first and play later.
Instead of wasting time resting while a muscle group is recovering from a set, work another muscle group instead. Doing this will keep your heart rate elevated and you will burn more calories overall.
High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) is one of the most effective ways to lose body fat and build muscle quickly. Studies have shown that it is much more effective than steady state exercise and doesn’t give you time to be bored like you would on a treadmill.
Lifting heavy weights adds lean muscle mass to your body. For every pound of lean muscle you add you will burn an extra 50 calories per day. That may not seem like much but it adds up quickly. Don’t worry ladies lifting weights will not make you look manly, they will however make you sexier than ever.
Squats And Deadlifts:
Let’s face it. Nobody likes them or wants to do them but they both work the entire body. They burn a heck of a lot of calories and put on muscle mass faster than most other exercises. More muscle equals more fat burning. Plus they are the quickest way to get the booty you have always dreamed of.
Do Cardio After You Lift:
Hopping on the treadmill may not be the first thing you think of when you finish your lifting session but by doing your cardio after you lift rather than before can increase your caloric burn by as much as 25%. Doing cardio before lifting also drains your glycogen stores before you even get to the weight rack, diminishing the effectiveness of your weight lifting.
If you really want a lean sexy body then you have to work hard for it. The only one holding you back is you.
