Time Of Hard Working - How Long You Need To Workout In Gym

A  friend of mine used to have a very intense exercise routine that took about 2 hours to get through, he decided that if he didn’t have the full 2 hours to devote to the regime, he wasn’t going to work out at all.

You can probably guess how often he went to the fitness gym.

Doing any kind of physical activity, for any amount of time, is already a good start, but if you’re putting in the time anyway, why not make the most of it?
This week, I’ve got 6 ways you can make a better investment in your health using 10 minutes you otherwise would have spent on your same old routine.

Cut your workout short!
The majority of your results happen in the first 30 to 45 minutes of your workout. You aren’t doing damage by exercising for an hour, but don’t torture yourself through those last 15 minutes for nothing. The less enjoyable you find your workout, the more likely you’ll eventually succumb to excuses not to do it.
The next time you go to the gym, skip those last 10 minutes of your regular routine, and invest them in one of these better uses of your time:
  1. Watch a group fitness class you’ve always wanted to try. Imagine yourself taking it.
  2. Plan your workout routines for the week: what days you’re going to visit the gym, what time, and what exercises you’re going to do — including one you’ve never tried before.
  3. Ask a staff member or volunteer to help you work on your technique, whether it’s for your salsa or your squat.
  4. Spend 5 minutes imaging yourself leading the group fitness class you just finished. Then spend the remaining five researches  how to become a certified instructor!
  5. Learn how to use a new piece of equipment to do an old favorite exercise.
  6. Find a friend and play a super-quick game of badminton or one-on-one basketball.
These tiny, no-risk investments will help you discover new ways of exercising you might totally love. Shaking things up is 100% necessary if you want to consistently get results out of your workout routine. Over time, your body acclimatizes to the challenges you throw its way. That’s why those 30 minutes on the treadmill feel grueling at first, but become manageable if you push through them for a few weeks. Your muscles adapt to be able to handle what you tell them to.

So, if you keep doing the same workout over and over, your results will stagnate — not to mention, you’ll be bored out of your mind and probably ditch the gym altogether.

In just 10 minutes, you can open your own eyes to some dozens of fitness options open to you. Making these small investments now will yield big returns later.
