Do you think that the way you exercise is perfect? How often do you come back from training with a feeling you would not be training at all? Take every second in the gym to get the best results.
.
The standard training is based on 20 minutes of warm-up with cardio and 60 minutes of struggling with weights. During this time, routine exercises are performed, which should give the required effect in the form of muscle tissue gains / body fat reduction. However, many people do the exercises without thinking, thinking that the effects will come from nothing. Going to the gym is not enough that you will be there – the effects will not appear. Being in the gym, do your best while maintaining good judgment and focus.
.
The following is a list of tips on how to get the best results. Maybe it will be just a reminder for you, or maybe you will learn something new that will improve the quality of your training.
.
1. Correct technique, no weight!
.
Doing the exercise with too much weight (in most cases) – the technique is poor. The result may be increased pain in the joints. Know that lifting heavy loads is not everything. Regardless of whether your goal is to build muscle mass or lose fat, the right technique is critical to success. The correct technique not only helps to stimulate muscle growth, it also ensures that the body remains fully healthy in terms of both physical and mental.
.
Take some time to find out everything about the correct technique and put it into practice. Think while exercising, move smoothly and do not let the weight dominate you. You must control the weight!
.
2. Intensity of exercises.
.
Regardless of what target you choose, whether it is muscle building or fat burning, there is no perfect workout. Each organism is different, the exercise may have different effects on everyone. The intensity of the exercise can also be different for everyone. One will achieve greater results by resting between sets of 60 seconds, while another one needs 120 seconds.
.
To correct “bad” training, make small changes, such as lifting slightly higher weights; shorten the rest time; try to fit your training in 60 minutes or less; try to beat your own records from week to week.
.
3. Focus.
.
Whenever you beat your weightlifting records, did you think you would not make it? The power of the mind is as important as muscle strength. Imagine that you are standing in front of the last series in the deadlift on which you want to beat your record. You walk around in a rest time and you still think that you will not make it – the weight is too big. With this approach at the outset you are a loser.
.
Thinking about weight as a new challenge that you have to overcome, you are in a winning position. Focus, imagine how you raise it and do not let doubt win with strong will!
.
4. Complex exercises.
.
The main multi-joint, complex exercises include squats, deadlift, pulling on the stick and extrusion. These are the best exercises to improve strength and increase muscle mass. There is nothing wrong with standard isolated exercises, but they are only a complement to the basis of complex exercises. Focusing on heavier compound exercises will allow you to see better results in less time.
.
5. Avoid exercising in groups.
.
Training with a large group of people is not a bad thing if the training looks like a real workout and not like a meeting after years. The best solution is to have a training partner who supports your passion and implements with you. In this way, the time spent at the gym will be fully used and the training will be more pleasant. Exercising with a large group of people at the same time, you lose too much time for conversation, and waiting for “your turn” is much longer.
.
6. Music as a motivation.
.
Everyone has their favorite kind of music. One person during the training likes to listen to strong bass, another rap, and yet another heavy rock. Each of these people can be motivated by different music, but the action will be the same. Listening to music during training will help you concentrate more. Listening to music gives the impression that physical effort is less tiring and the pace of exercise is greater. Choose your favorite play list at home, so that you do not waste time looking for your favorite motivating song during your training. In addition, headphones in the ears will discourage other people to talk to you, so you can focus even more on training.
.
7. Record performance!
.
Recording performance is a very important element. It is impossible to remember what exercises, how many sets, how many repetitions and what weight you practiced exactly. Saving your performance from week to week will allow you to try to raise more. If the greater weight is causing you trouble, try the same weight every week before, but more repetitions. If you can not remember everything until you return home, carry a card and a pen or telephone (for quotation). Perhaps others will laugh at you and write everything down. However, in the future you will laugh at others how weak they are !!
