How Often Should You Workout?
Fitness doesn’t take 15 hours a week to be in shape & to be fit.
Most people are under the impression to lose weight & get fit you need to be in the gym for hours at a time, 7 days a week. Thankfully this is not the case.
You can torch fat, stimulate lean muscle, improve overall health & boost your fitness levels by exercising just 30 minutes, 3 days per week.
Rather than spending 1-2 hours in the gym walking around, taking long breaks & not having a plan, focus on the intensity & quality of work performed over the quantity of time you spend working out.
In these 30 minutes bouts of exercise you want to make sure you are training with high intensity & are executing good quality movement. This approach is a more time efficient & sustainable for most people.
Along with making sure you’re keeping active; walking, stretching, foam rolling, playing tennis, football, yoga, hiking & in general just doing things you love, will serve you well & will yield results.
Below is one of my favourite time efficient workouts for you to try:
30 Min Fat Burning Workout:
OMEM: On The Minute Every Minute
Perform each exercise on the minute, rest the remainder of the minute before performing the next move. Once you have performed the last exercise, rest the remainder & start again from minute one. Repeat circuit 6 times for an effective full body fat burning workout.
- Minute 1: Press Ups x10
- Minute 2: Split Squat (Right Leg) x10
