Enjoy the process of becoming better with these tips for a better workout:
No matter what your type of training you’re doing it is really important to do so efficiently and look to optimise your workouts for optimal results. Here are my top five really simple tips for a better workout that anyone can apply in order to maximise their results.
Tip #1 – Set yourself goals
Setting yourself goals and targets of what you want to get out of your training, can really help to guide your workouts by giving you a clear picture of what it is you are working towards and can help to focus your mind on how what you’re about to do will help you get to that end goal.
Tip #2 – Find a partner
Having a training partner or partners, who can push you, motivate you and generally help make your training enjoyable can be a real asset in guiding you towards great end results. If you can find someone to train with who shares your goals and is willing to work as hard you to get there, you’re sure to set yourself up for success.
Tip #3 – Be progressive
Whether it be pushing out one more rep than last time, working at a higher intensity than before or taking shorter rest periods, progressive overload is a really important training principle to implement into your workouts. By working just a little bit harder every time you train you can set yourself up to make continual improvements towards your goal which you can feel good about having done after each and every workout.
Tip #4 – Replenish and Recover
After training it is really important that you get both protein and carbohydrates back into your body a.s.a.p. in order to refuel taxed muscles and kick-start the recovery process so that you can come back better and stronger each time. A great, simple example of an ideal post-workout snack is Sativa Shakes High Pro coupled with a large banana.
Tip #5 – Be patient and enjoy the process
Training for a goal can be a lengthy, and at times, an arduous process where people can often get frustrated if they don’t see improvements immediately. By being patient and training regularly & effectively though the results are bound to come in time, so enjoy the journey of becoming better.
