5 Ways To Cut Your Workout Time

Posted Aug 23 2008 3:01pm

woman sleeping Do you know the 2 biggest reasons men and women stop exercising?

1) Lack of time

2) Lack of motivation

Let’s tackle “Lack of Time” today with 5 ways you can get your workouts done faster. After all, no one should spend more than 50 minutes in the gym.

Here are 5 ways to cut time from your workouts.

a) Supersets

I use “non-competing” superset. This means, choose two exercises for different muscle groups - and preferably completely opposite movements. For example, choose a push and a pull. That way, one muscle group rests while the other works…and you cut the rest time you need between sets.

b) Choose a better warmup strategy

Don’t waste 10 minutes walking on the treadmill. Instead, use a total body circuit of bodyweight exercises as a general warmup, and then move directly into specific warm-up sets for your first two exercises.

c) Pair dumbbell and bodyweight exercises together in your supersets

This saves you time at home (you don’t need to change the dumbbell weight between exercises) and in the gym (you don’t need to fight for 2 sets of dumbbells).

d) Choose Intervals over slow cardio

The latest research shows more weight loss when people use

intervals, and intervals take half as long to do.

e) Limit the use of isolation exercises

Pick multi-muscle exercises, such as squats, pulls, pushes, and

rows. If you have time, you can squeeze in some dropsets for arms and shoulders if you want. However, if you only have 3 sessions of 45 minutes per week, isolation exercises must be the first to go.

In addition, don’t spend more than 10 minutes per week on direct ab training. It’s not efficient and won’t give you rock hard abs alone.

Workout less, live life more!

This is an article from Craig Ballantyne, creator or Turbulence Training . I can not express how amazing this guy AND his workouts are. If there was ever a product that I would recommend and stand by 100%, it would be Craig and his TT workouts.

If you haven’t picked up a copy of Turbulence Training yet, I suggest you do so. You can even try it out for 21 days for less than $5 !! Here are some more suggestions about where to start when using the TT workouts:

If you are a beginner, start by reading Dr. Mohr’s nutrition guidelines…eating properly will be the biggest factor in your early success.

Beginners should also start with the Introductory TT workouts to prepare their muscles for the upcoming intense training.

For others, it’s best to start with the Intermediate Level TT workouts. If those aren’t enough of a challenge, you can move onto the Original TT workout and follow the 16-week advanced program right through.

If at any time you need a break, try the TT Bodyweight 4-week plan.

And then finish off with the TT Fusion Fat Loss program followed by the 30-day Maximum Fat Loss program to cap off a full 24 weeks of Advanced TT fat loss workouts.

After that, choose between the TT for Women or TT for Muscle programs to help put the finishing touches on your physique. All of these are included as bonuses with Turbulence Training.
