3 ways for more productive workouts

1) Don't waste precious gym time-Walk into the gym knowing you have X amount of time to get whatever you planned on doing and make sure you get the work done in that time period! There will be plenty of people in the gym trying to talk your ear off or disrupt your time so stay on track! Remember that each rep matters and taking a set or rep " off " could be the difference in looking amazing and looking average.

2) Always have a backup- Of course you want to do everything you had planned each and every workout but sometimes it just isn't going to happen and then that's when you need a backup plan. If it is too hard to jump in and out on a machine or piece of equipment then look to alternatives. Below are some options to help you.

First Choice: Barbell Deadlift
First Choice: Barbell Back Squat

First Choice: Pull-up

First Choice: Dumbbell Flat Bench Press

  1. I agree having a backup is vital - even in terms of having a backup plan for your entire workout. Sometimes when I'm planning to go to the gym but can't make it I still get a workout in because I have a home routine I can always fall back on.
