Make sure that you warm up before you start doing anything. I’ve been subject to severe injuries all other the years, and now I make sure that I don’t repeat the same mistakes.
A good way to warm up is to focus on the area you are going to train. As an example, if you are going to do strength training for your legs, you can just warm up your legs and forget about your arms and other non related parts of your body.
It is also good to alternate upper and lower body workouts because while the upper body needs some time to rest, you can still work the lower body.
Occasionally, I will change my workout completely to work the whole body in one session. Remember when I said that I hate to be bored?
Another powerful thing I do is training my abs whenever I do an exercise. I am not talking about specific abs exercises here, but all of them.
Let’s say that you are doing some push ups. To work your abs at the same time, you need to increase the tension on your abs (like if you were going to receive a punch in the stomach). Doing this will ensure that you get 6 pack abs faster than others who don’t know this powerful secret.
Your abs are the center of your body and you should always train them while you are doing any workout.
It’s important to put this in your mind. To get strong abs, you need to focus on them.
Something I started to do after I started working with my students is planning my strength training workouts. Don’t forget that if you fail to plan, you plan to fail.
It’s really easy to do, all you need is a pen and a piece of paper, and prepare the lessons before you start.
You can even have a monthly plan once you have more experience.
And remember, you don’t need to spend hours in the gym. Bodyweight training is one of the best form of exercises to lose weight and build muscle You should be done in less than one hour.
