Life Performance Blog: Are You Getting The Most Out Of Your Exercise

This question might make you squirm, but I’m going to ask it anyway... How effective are your workouts?

Do you regularly push yourself to the limit? Do you work to fatigue with every set? Do you have nothing left to give when it’s over?

Or would you describe your workout more like a comfortable trot? Do you coast along, breaking a respectable sweat while doing the same old routine?

Since you are spending a portion of your valuable time working out, I assume that you desire to have a healthy body. And I also assume that if you had the option to achieve that even faster you’d say, “Yes, please!”

The following tips are going to show you how to spend less time exercising while achieving quicker, more noticeable results. Sounds good, right?

Researchers have proven significant increase in muscle activity when people focused on what they were doing, compared to thinking about unrelated topics.
