How has your exercise routine been lately? Have you been in the gym as often as you would like? Once you do get to the gym, have your workouts been as effective as you wanted them to be?
If you answered no to any of these questions, chances are you are falling victim to this BIG MISTAKE that people make with their workout routines!
What you’ll find, however, is this mistake is easily overcome. You merely need to understand the principle at play. Once you do, your workouts will get dramatically better results than what you probably have been getting.
If you are getting good workouts already, don’t worry! This tip will give you EVEN BETTER RESULTS than you are already getting!
Here’s the tip: PLAN YOUR WORKOUT IN ADVANCE!
Sounds easy, right? For some people, it really is easy. For me, not so much. I’ve found, for me, that if I try to just “wing it” once I get to the gym, my workout sucks. I spend the majority of my limited time trying to think of what to do next. That doesn’t make for a productive time in the gym!
What I did to combat that problem is stop trying to think. That may sound counter-intuitive, but it really makes sense when you stop and think about it! I started going to a couple of different websites (saved right to the home screen on my phone). They gave me pre-thought out workouts to do, which saves me a ton of time trying to figure out what to do.
Also, (and best in my opinion) these workouts were created by fitness experts! That means you will be getting the best workout…and they are FREE!!
Head over to www.spartan.com for free workouts. These workouts are great for anyone, because they utilize body weight movements! I did one this morning and I can barely keep my arms raised to type this message, lol!
Also, check out my Instagram video I shot this morning on this topic!
