The key to have consistent and lasting results in your weight training workouts is to maximize every session. In order to achieve your weight loss or muscle gain goals, discover some important points that will help you save time.
Even in a world of fast paced activities, you deserve the body you want. Maximize your weight training and get results.
Ideally, the body will be at its maximum potential from 45 minutes to an hour and a half. Three to five days per week is enough, but you have to watch out for things like overtraining and other activities you have outside of the gym.
Time spent weight training varies according to your fitness level and age, but spending time in this range consistently will definitely get you results.

Workout plans save a lot of time of guessing and confusion. A well-researched, well designed plan aims for a certain muscle building goal. Proper motivation and following the sets, reps and even rest maximizes your weight training sessions.
Check with your physician first before getting into any exercise program.
In order to boost your metabolism consistently, a great indicator of good progress in your workouts is your heart rate. Keep it simple by not using specific beats per minute. A little shortness of breath, sweat and faster heartbeats are great indicators of a good workout.
Keep every workout challenging and progressive. This won't keep you bored, and you will enjoy the fruits of your hard work.
You won't spend more time than you have to - "get the job done and get out" is a good way to keep workouts short and sweet. Having more rest periods longer than 3 minutes per set means your heart rate going down at one point making the whole session not as effective as its designed to be.
You can spend time on everything else - having a workout plan for 90 minutes or less won't create a "workout freak" in you, which might lead to overtraining and injury.
A gym is a great way to meet new people with the same goals as yours. However, mingling and talking that results in longer rests between can lead to over rest, under training and injuries.
If you work out with a person or two, you can begin to motivate, encourage, get and share new ideas and even help one another blast through workout sticking points. The business of working out and pleasure of socialization can mix for better results.
Even in a world of fast paced activities, you deserve the body you want. Maximize your weight training workouts and get results.
