The Most Efficient Workout

Today's post is short and sweet. So, I want to talk about stimulating your stamina and physical strength quickly. These are two tools you cannot go without if you want to have a life of purpose and fulfillment. To begin, let's discuss the key players; your muscles.

Muscles are funny things. They respond to just about any type of training, as long as it's challenging and as long as it's not the same darn thing you've always done. That's the beauty of what's called "density training:" It's a whole lot of stuff you haven't tried yet. And best of all, you can work all your major muscles in a fraction of the time it takes to to 'traditional' weight training.

Here's how it works: Instead of counting reps and sets, you'll focus on the total amount of work you can accomplish in a fixed amount of time. For example; let's use abdominal crunches or push-ups. Instead of doing a specific number and then stopping, try doing as many as you can for one minute. As you progress, you'll naturally increase your sets and reps, be able to use more weight, and perform exercises that are more challenging.

The result: More lean mass and fewer hours at the gym. In fact, this technique works great for the days you can't actually make it to the gym, or would rather do a workout outdoors. Ready to give it a go?

As always – Enjoy Your Life!
