Three Training Tips To Maximise Your Workout

As with everything in life, we're always looking for the quick way out. Fad diets, get rich quick schemes. The "work smarter, not harder" approach seems to be the way these days and whilst this attitude might work in some aspects, it is not the case when it comes to your health and fitness.

Luckily, with the effective results we can attain through the use of EMS technology, we have already minimised work out time to 20 minutes a week, what a bonus! That being said, even with EMS training your fitness journey needs to be a marathon, not a sprint.

Dedication and patience are the name of the game and no one gets their ideal body overnight and once you DO have it, the work needs to continue to maintain it.

Here are some useful tips to maximise your workouts, so that you are guaranteed to get the best out of every moment.

1. FACT CHECK YOUR FORM

Form is everything. Whether you are lifting weights, working on a machine, swimming or golfing; any professional trainer or coach will explain the importance of your form.

Exercising the wrong way will only result in injury or a lack of improvement. Working out incorrectly will mean that you are not targeting the correct muscles in the appropriate way, thus wasting your time slogging away with no results.

Having an experienced personal trainer to assist you with your form and explain the necessities of the movement will ensure that you are capitalising on your time spent working out, every single time.

2. CARBO-LOAD

We've been told over and over again that carbs are bad for you, but they are the primary source of fuel for a high intensity workout. Working out on an empty stomach is going to force your body to call on reserves that you cannot really afford to lose, breaking down your muscles for fuel which is completely counterproductive.

You're likely to feel weak or light headed during your workout, which means you won't be able to go as hard as you can without risking injury.

Try eating a bowl of whole grain cereal with low fat milk or some whole wheat toast a few hours before you head to the gym. Your body will thank you for it and your fatigue will be minimised.

3. FULL BODY WORKOUTS

Unsupported, upright exercises like running force you to use multiple muscle groups all at once. Engaging multiple muscle groups at the same time whilst working out is a great way to save on time and ensures you are economical with your energy reserves.

One of the primary benefits of EMS technology is that whether you are doing strength training or cardio, the EMS suit engages multiple muscle groups simultaneously allowing you to focus on the task at hand, knowing that you’ve got the extra edge!

Shortcuts and skimping on the holistic approach to training is not the way to achieve your ideal results. A solid workout plan, clear goals and a passionate and knowledge support system equals the winning formula to help you become focused and stay dedicated.
