What is the optimal amount of time for your workout session?
Today’s Live Lean TV episode is all about how long your workouts should last?
If you’re serious about getting your best body ever…and I know you are…you should have goals for every single workout.
Of course the following typical workout goals should already be outlined in your workout program:
– a specific # of reps
– and weight
…and by now Live Leaners, I hope you have invested in a properly designed workout program. If you haven’t, I highly recommend you make the commitment to your body, your health, and your sexiness…and invest in my 12 week Live Lean Afterburn workout program. It has been getting so many Live Leaners incredible results. Just go check out my success stories page for proof.
Alrighty then, now that that is cleared up’¦let me ask you…
Are your workouts to long?
If you’re following one of my workout programs, you have nothing to worry about since the majority of my programs are designed to be completed in what I call the “beast zone”.
The beast zone time frame is between 50-75 mins ’¦and on the rare occasion up to 90 mins.
BUT NO MORE THAN THAT!
Workouts that last longer than that can be counterproductive because of a hormonal shift in your body that actually fights against optimal gains and recovery.
In other words, you’re working against yourself.
When your workouts last longer than 60 mins…
…the stress hormone known as cortisol begins getting high, which SHUTS DOWN muscle anabolism, and your immune system starts taking a beating.
So before your next workout, set your timer.
If you truly are working out at the intensity required to get your best body ever, you really shouldn’t have anything left in the tank after 60 mins.
If you do, you’re probably spending more effort trying to get that girls number than making gains.
And I know what you’re going to ask’¦
What if you need more time to finish your cardio and weights during the same workout?
If that’s the case, split it into 2 workouts, one in the morning and one in the evening.
Trust me, it’s much better for gains and recovery than spending more than 90 mins during one session.
Lets get a conversation going in the comments below’¦how long do your workout sessions last?
