Getting Max Results From Your Workouts
Every time you work out it is crucial to your fitness goals that you achieve maximum results. If you are working out for an hour per day, it is important that you include exercises that will help you achieve your goals. To optimize your workouts if you only have a limited amount of time to work out it is recommended that you design a workout plan that allows you to lift the most amount of weight in a short time. When designing your workout, you should organize your exercises in a manner that will minimize the negative effects that the previously performed exercises will have on future exercises.
An example of would be not to perform tricep extensions prior to performing bench presses. This will not provide you with the results you’re trying to achieve because the muscles needed to perform bench presses will already be pre-exhausted due to the tricep extensions. Trying to work-out with muscles that are already showing signs of exhaustion will limit the amount of reps you are able to perform. By not being able to perform as many reps you will not be putting in as much productive work as you would have if your workout routine were properly designed.
To design a productive work-out you should begin with four complex exercises which are complex in nature and involve as many different muscle groups as possible. The final two exercises in your set should be isolation exercises. It is also recommended that design your work-outs to ensure that your weaker muscles receive a break. This can be done by including exercises in the middle of two demanding exercises that will not work out the already tired muscle group. By giving your weaker muscle groups an opportunity to rest, they will be ready when you need to perform more demanding types of exercises.
A properly designed work-out routine should organize each exercise in a way that will allow you to perform the exercises using the highest level of weight and performing the most reps in order to get maximum results. Including a fifteen minute break between each exercise set will provide your muscles with the necessary amount of time needed to recover. Muscles allowed to rest will allow you to work harder and achieve the results you desire. Providing smaller muscle groups with more time to rest will also help avoid the muscles from becoming pre-exhausted.
Working out not only makes you feel better physically, but it also has a positive impact on your mental health as well. When you feel good about how you look, you often experience an increase in self-confidence. The healthier you are physically, the better you will begin to feel mentally. This is also caused by the release of endorphins that your body creates every time you exercise. These endorphins allow you to work harder and longer while achieving maximum results.
