How much time to spend at the gym

How much time to spend in the gym, is one of the biggest questions a person needs to ask themselves when they are starting off. Is too much time counter productive? Is there a certain length of time one needs to spend in the gym, so they can attain the goals they desire or does it not really matter?

In this article I attempt to provide a quick and detailed answer to this question, to help you determine how long you really do need to spend in the gym.

Supersets

Anyone who’s now getting into the fitness lifestyle, tend to follow the normal path and focus on the basics. This is very good for progress and to prevent injury, but as one progresses, they need to venture off into other aspects of weight lifting that can yield some awesome results. Generally, we focus on doing one exercise, for 1 set, with one body part and then break for 45-60 seconds and then move onto the same body part, doing the same exercise. With supersets, you’re going to be allowed to continuously work on a particular muscle group, but utilize another exercise for that body part. There are different variations to supersets to make it more challenging as time goes by and to also make it more interesting, basically tricking your body into continuously growing to adapt to the new challenges and never become stagnant and stalling from the lack of new stimulation. For this article though, I am going to focus on the basic premise behind supersets and the basic routine that goes along with it. Later on, I will expand with other forms of supersets in other articles in the future. If you are interested in incorporating supersets into your routine, I suggest you continue reading! 🙂

Bodyweight Exercising Part I

Sometimes it’s pretty hard to be able to get to the gym. Not only that but some of us don’t have the funds to purchase a membership at a gym. Not even $15 a month is sufficient for some people, because there’s more important things like say; food! 🙂 I am writing this article, with you in mind. Maybe you are too busy to go to a gym (which I doubt, because if you really wanted to, the time you are on the couch watching tv, you can relax and get your sweat on!), or maybe you want to start off with some body weight exercises, and then progress to a gym environment. Whatever it may be, here’s a break down on some different types of body weight exercises.

Bodybuilder vs Weightlifter

I am going to make this post a little short and sweet, if I say so myself. This is being done so that you as a reader and visitor of my blog, can really ask yourself the question; “What am I?” When you’re starting off with weight lifting, you have to make sure that you have an idea of where you want to go because if you don’t, sometimes you end up no where or in places you didn’t want to be in the first place. To help guide you to that place, where you want to be, you have to ask yourself whether you’re a bodybuilder or a weight lifter. What’s the difference you may ask? To you, it may seem that they are one in the same. But, in actuality, they are not. Continue reading to learn the difference, so that you can start setting goals right now, to get to that specific place that you want to be with your physique.

2 Day Split

This two day split is what I used when I didn’t have the means to get to the gym often enough. Now this doesn’t say what you do in those split, but just give you an idea of how to workout twice a week and maximize your gains. Day 1: Upper body – do 2 exercises per body group and make sure to not exceed 45 minutes. If you have been working out for a couple of months now, and training time is limited and you need to do only 2 days a week training, then you can add 3 exercises per body part and stay in the gym for 1 and a half hours. Day 2: Lower Body – because this can be very strenuous even for the avid trainer, I’d suggest keeping this to only 2 exercise per body part. Because of this split, you can do it one day after the other, so Monday train and Tuesday you train and the rest of the week you are off. Or Friday you train and saturday you train and you be off for the rest of the week. Or, you can do Monday train and friday train, every day in between and afterward, is off days. The point is, that because your training each body part once a week, you are not going to over train and you’re definitely not going to lose the possibilities of making gains. I actually made my best gains under this type of training,[…]
