Time Saving Workout Tips

Product Reviewed: Pumped Extreme - Kre-Alkalyn Complex Creatine
Rating: 5 Star
Reviewer: Max Mussello

Out of all the Creatine's I've tried, from powdered monohydrate creatine to fancy sounding pre-made stacks, this Kre-Alkylyn complex called Pumped Extreme is hands down the best ever. The first part of this creatine review will be a Pumped Extreme Review, because it is the best creatine supplement that I have ever tried and it has given me the most muscular gains!

Having a sensitive stomach and an aversion to putting chemicals or anything unnatural in my body, this was like a miracle solution for me! Pumped Extreme comes in a capsule format, and you can avoid all the common side effects associated with traditional creatine use such as cramping, diarrhea, indigestion, anxiety attacks, etc. This was my experience anyway, and I cannot tell you that creatine works like illegal steroids, because it doesn't. I can tell you though that I have used many different brands in the past with minimal results, and now that I have used Pumped Extreme I have actually seen some great gains in strength AND muscle SIZE, and I haven't had any negative side affects! I have used it for over a month and a half to date!

Time Management Tips for Exercise

time saving workouts

For most people, it seems like seconds count in their personal and professional lives. Catching a plane for a sales trip. Critical appointments with clients. Running around with your kids, making sure they get to school, to practice, to games, or whatever other hundred things they're involved with each day. We live in a fast paced society whether you embrace it or not.

But YOU don't have to leave that philosophy in the locker room when you hit the gym. Although there's never an excuse for sloppy exercise technique, there are dozens of safe ways to shave time from your workout routine - and still train like a champion. Here are some of the most effective time-saving strategies in this free weight lifting program. Even though you desire to speed up your weight lifting workout, just don't allow your workout to suffer for it. Resting in between sets is still needed for your muscles to give peak output.

1. Rev up your fat-burning furnace

Treadmills are great for walking, jogging, or running, but doing a little of each is called INTERVAL TRAINING and can help kick your body's fat-burning ability into high-gear. Walk for 5 minutes to start. Then jog for 3 minutes, then run at a higher level for 2 minutes, alternating back and forth until you've reached anywhere from 15-30 minutes of total time. If that's too difficult, start at 30 seconds of jog, 30 seconds of run, and increase gradually by 15 seconds until you can do 2 minutes jog, 2 minutes run.

2. Super sets for super gains

Train opposing muscle groups together in the same gym workout. For example, after you get done doing a set of bench press to work your chest, IMMEDIATELY go to the lat pulldown machine to do a set of pulldowns for your middle back.

3. Stay focused

You've heard it before "he who fails to plan plans to fail." Said in fitness jargon, "he who walks into the gym and wanders around wastes massive amounts of time." Plan your weight training routine before you walk into the gym. And STICK WITH IT.

4. Learn your weight room geography

It may take some searching, but you'll save all kinds of travel time if you can find a fitness center that is either on your route to work or on your way home. Plus, learn every area in your gym so you have a mental picture of where each piece of equipment is.

5. Cross-train aerobically

If your gym enforces a 20 minute rule for occupying an aerobic exercise machine, just switch from the treadmill to the bike and get a great 40 minute cardio workout without leaving the area. Besides, this will add a little variety to your very repetitive cardio workouts.

6. Quit the B.S.ing and chit chat

Yes, you look forward to chatting with your friends at the gym. But when time is on the line and you have to zip through your workout, TELL THEM. That way you get your weight lifting workouts in without making them feel ignored.

7. Change your foot placement

Doing something as simple as this from exercise to exercise can turn a simple leg press into a total leg workout. Placing your feet a couple of inches apart hits your quadriceps in the middle a bit more. Move them further apart, about hip width, will stress the outer portion of your quads. Place them at the corners of the leg press platform (with toes pointed at 45 degrees) will work your hamstrings the most.

8. Train with your partner

Sometimes weight lifting can seem like it's stealing time away from your spouse or significant other. Why not do your weight training workouts together? You don't actually have to workout together - your weight lifting workout routines will be very different. Better than feeling guilty about not spending time together.

9. Grab a bench and hold onto it for your workout

A single, adjustable bench allows you to do a multitude of exercises amongst a weight room full of chaos. You can do bench presses, shoulder presses, crunches, curls, triceps extensions, upright rows, etc. Your workout goes smoothest when you have all the barbells and dumbbells nearby, so the only time you have to move is to grab different weights.

10. Avoid the peak time at the gym

If you want a peak performance workout, avoid working out during your gym's peak hours - typically 5:30 pm - 8:30 pm. You'll wind up wasting time waiting in line for workout equipment. And have a wasted weight training workout.

11. Get a permanent locker

Here's where you can stash extra clothes, extra workout clothes, towel and toiletries to help you out when you need to train in a pinch. It also makes you feel more at home when you have a small place to call your own.

12. Early bird gets the worm and the bench

Most gyms have a lot fewer members in the early-morning hours. Plus, you'll often find they're less talkative - maybe because they're trying to wake up. This works for most people but not for everyone.

13. Prepare for your next exercise

Prepare for your next exercise between sets will save you time. If you're going to use dumbbells, for instance, pull them from the rack and place them at the bench you're going to use. This also alerts others that you are using the equipment.

14. Going down the rack

Your fellow gym-goers may not like this, but you can cut training time significantly by spending your time in front of the dumbbell rack instead of going from one machine to another. Think of the range of exercises you can do in a dumbbell workout: rows, bench presses, all kinds of curls, shoulder presses, lunges, etc. Just leave enough space in front of you so others can get to the rack too.
