How intense you are and how hard you work can make almost any program effective.
I used to go to the gym and chat with some buddies on my breaks, not paying attention to my rest time. It wasn’t until I kept my eye on the clock and my mind into each and every rep that I started seeing real results.
My workouts used to be 1.5 hours, now they’re 30-40 minutes and which do you think have given me better results?
The shorter workouts!
I’m working harder than I ever had in the gym and even though I’m spending the least amount of time I ever have in there, I’m getting the best results of my life.
A sample of these workouts will be up soon…
Working smarter is will also make a world of difference in you succeeding or failing in trying to reach your fitness goals.
Like I said I’ve shortened my workouts and I’m getting better results. Aside from working harder, I’m also working smarter.
I’m changing my reps and sets every 3 weeks so my body doesn’t have time to adapt to the stress I’m putting it through when I’m working out.
Here’s an example:
3 weeks ago:
4 day split – giant sets, 3 exercises 3x each, done consecutively for reps of 10 or less. A combination of different body parts done everyday.
Next 3 weeks
4 day split – giant sets – 2 exercises per muscle group, 2 sets each muscle group (the second set is till failure + a drop set at the end) and I get half of my muscle groups done Monday +Thursday and the other half Tuesday + Saturday.
3 weeks later I’ll move on to something else, then I’ll work these two workouts back into the mix.
To summarize, I got my best results when I began to work really hard. I got even better results when I began to work smarter as well.
If you have any questions let me know!
I’ll put up a few pdf files of sample workouts in the next week or so.
