4 Ways to Make Your Quick Workout Sessions Productive
Time Limitation? No Problem!
On most days, you’d have the urge to train hard and long but you’d not enough time to do it. And with a very limited time in hand, you may not be sure if your workout session is even worth attempting, right? Well, if you know how to do it, even the shortest of workout sessions can bring you the best of results.
There may not be any specific numbers or stats to decide if your workout session is productive or not, but a fitness enthusiast wouldn’t need any of them to learn if the training has been satisfactory. On some days, you’ll get a good workout and on some, you would not despite following the seemingly similar routine. You’d feel it.
But why the difference, though? Because some minute factors play a crucial role in making your session a productive one, especially with limited time in hand. Here are a few tips to turn the results and efficiency in your favour.
Plan and the Alternative
Planning is always crucial to make your training efficient. And it is all the more important when you have limited time on your hands. You should also have a back-up plan that includes alternative workouts just in case you don’t have the equipment for originally planned exercise ready. You don’t have to lose time, which already is limited, figuring out what to do.
Focus on Supersets
The fundamental feature of Supersets is to perform consecutive exercises with limited or no time in between. This is a great choice if you have limited time to work out. Ensure that you have all the workout equipment in a close proximity so that you don’t lose time switching between exercises. Also make sure you have your water bottle near you so that you don’t have to waste those precious minutes fetching it.
Limit the Break Time
It’s obvious but still important to mention in this case. You can afford a few minutes of break between different exercises when you have time at hand but not here. It is recommended to perform a string of high intensity exercises so that you are amped up right from the start and you can cool down only when the session is ended. Although, make sure you are not overdoing it to avoid unnecessary injuries!
Say No to Distractions
Focus is crucial when you want the best of benefits in limited time. Stay away from the electronic gadgets and mobiles when you are in session. Ensure that no social media or calls distract you. Also casual conversations at the gym can wait. You have more important things to do. Like chasing fitness!
