Are you wasting your time?
This question might make you squirm, but let’s ask it anyway…
Time is the single most valuable currency that we have which means that we can’t afford to waste it.
With that in mind, are you wasting time in the gym when working out?
Do you regularly push yourself to your limit?
Do you feel the burn with each rep?
Do you have nothing left to give when it’s over?
Or would you describe your routine more like a comfortable trot?
Do you coast along, breaking a respectable sweat while doing the same old (usually boring) thing?
Since you are spending a portion of your valuable time exercising, I assume that you have goals and aspirations for your health & body.
And I also assume that if you had the option to achieve that leaner, healthier, more toned body even faster you’d jump at it!
The following tips are going to show you how to spend less time exercising, while achieving quicker, more noticeable results.
It sounds obvious, but this crucial requirement for an effective workout is often overlooked.

The best results are achieved when you’re drinking enough water and eating real, wholesome foods.
The time of day that you exercise makes a huge difference in your results.
And no, I’m not going to say that there’s a universal ‘right time’ to workout.
Your job is to figure out when your body is at its best and to make that the time that you consistently exercise.
If you’re not a morning person, then don’t force yourself to wake up at 5am, try working out after work instead & vice versa.
There’s a benefit to working out in a small group setting.
Researchers saw a significant increase in strength and endurance in the people who had an audience versus those training on their own.
Caffeine has been shown to be a great pre workout supplement and to increase endurance.
If you don’t have any medical conditions that would otherwise make moderate caffeine intake unsafe, then drink a caffeinated beverage one hour prior to working out.
Be Pumped Up.
Cheque this out: researchers found that music motivated weightlifters to complete two more repetitions on average than those who were not listening to music.
That’s a great reason to listen to upbeat music while you exercise.
