Workout Smarter, Not Longer

Too often I see people inefficiently using their time in the gym, whether it's waiting too long between sets, watching the football game, texting or changing the song on their iPod. Focus is a major factor in seeing results in your workout routine. Wasting time in the gym not only hinders your results but also ads a negative aspect to exercising (the fact it takes so long). When you go to the gym have a plan, set a goal and work to achieve it in as little time as possible. Take 15-30 seconds between sets to stretch the muscle your working and that's it, go right back at it. Leave your phone in your locker! Stay focused on the task at hand and get it done. Music is a great motivator but don't let it impede your workout, make a playlist with your favorite songs and just let it play.

Thanks for reading, Joe
