Get the Most from a Short Workout

Get the Most from a Short Workout
 
If you only have a short amount of time to get a workout in – don’t despair! Here’s how you can make the most of your time and maximize your workout.
 
Add incline – When performing cardio exercise, increase the incline or resistance or use nature’s natural incline – hills!
 
Incorporate interval training – Interval training (alternating between higher-intensity and lower-intensity bursts) improves fitness level and burns more fat and calories than exercising at a steady pace.
 
Use weights – Certain styles of strength training like pyramid training, compound sets, and super sets are all great time-efficient workouts. Research has even shown that those who use a two/four count (two seconds to lift and four seconds to return the weight) can gain nearly twice the strength as those who take less time on the return phase.
 
Use more muscle – Compound exercises, which work multiple muscle groups all at once, give you a bigger bang for your buck. Some examples to try are a squat with an overhead press or a lunge with a lateral raise.
