Exercise is great—it can help you burn fat and lose muscle.
That is, if you exercise correctly—if you do the right exercises, the right way, at the right times…
Unfortunately, I would say that 4 out of every 5 people you see in the gym are doing it wrong…and as a result, they’re completely wasting their time. Putting in all that hard work and effort…for nothing. No weight loss and no muscle gain whatsoever.
But after you learn these 5 easy tips, you’ll know better.
These 5 workout hacks are going to help you get the most out of your workouts in the least amount of time.
And hack #1 is: Alternate cardio workouts with strength workouts.
Most people associate cardio with weight loss. And as a result, they spend most of their time in the gym on the treadmill, the bike, or the elliptical.
These people vastly underestimate the importance of strength training—using free weights and machines to build lean muscle.
At the opposite end of the spectrum, some people try to lift weights like 5-6 times a week. And that’s not good either. For one thing, you’ll miss out on the cardiovascular and respiratory benefits of doing cardio. And the other thing is that by lifting weights too often, you run the serious risk of overtraining and not letting your muscles adequately recover.
So the best way to work out, in my experience, is to alternate the two.
Let’s break it down:
Cardio strengthens your heart and your lungs, it helps your circulation, it raises your metabolism and helps you burn more calories, and research even shows that cardio exercise is good for your brain…in other words, it literally makes you smarter.
Weight-lifting helps you build lean muscle, increase your resting metabolism, and improve your insulin sensitivity.
One form of exercise is NOT better than the other; instead, you need both.
And if you alternate one day of strength training with one day of cardio, you’ll get the benefits of both forms of exercise. And it also gives your muscles the time they need to recover in between weight-lifting sessions.
For example, I typically do cardio on Mon, Weds, and Fri, and lift weights Tues, Thurs, and Sat. Then Sunday I let my body rest.
This is the best workout schedule I’ve found to lose weight, skyrocket your health, and improve your overall body composition.
