How To Maximize Your Total Gym Workouts
When planning for your Total Gym workouts schedule, make sure to listen to your body, one could do, you could even manage to do workouts everyday but your body will need a break once in a while. If you have a tight schedule, just make sure that every time you get to work out, it is really intense.
When working out, push yourself to your last limits, take small breaks in between sets, this will be plenty of time for your body to recover.
For best results, you could decide that once a month you do a Total Gym workout for two days consecutively, then rest for three days and you will see the outcome.
When you get to the gym, make sure you warm up first, walk around the room to get your muscles going, then start with basic pull ups, lay on your stomach with your neck above the bench and then with a reasonable weight perform the pull ups in slow repetitions. Do three sets of these.
Next do bicep curls, get into a seated position and turn over your hands so that you are in a curl position, make sure your shoulders are down and strengthen your wrist, lift the weights up to your shoulder in slow repetition motions, do at least three sets until you feel your muscle burn.
Next you should do the chest press, seat on the bench, grab the weights in such a way that your elbows are close to your chest, and lift the weights up to your chest without locking your elbows, make sure you do two to three sets of these and you are good.
Finally try the incline squat, this workout works most of the lower body muscles and is a good cardio supplement for the week, lie on the bench with your back put your feet on the optional bar and lower yourself so that you bend your knees to about 60 or 90 degrees. Doing these exercises will give you a great work out under an hour.
Circuit training is an efficient way to train multiple muscle groups in a short period of time. It works by performing a series of exercises that typically focus on different muscle groups.
As you begin your circuit, you'll complete one exercise and then move onto the next exercise with little or no rest in between. By circuit training you'll gain both muscle strength and cardio endurance.
