In order to train bulky muscles and ramp up your body to sculptured perfection, you need to spend hours at the
gym, seven days a week, year after year. This kind of opinion is surprisingly wide-spread and in most cases, it’s what
scared beginners away from the decision of starting a gym training. But is it really true? In fact, not so
First of all, let’s make it clear: if you do want to achieve some impressive effect, you’ll still have to work hard. But the thing is to see real results, you don’t have to spend every single day of your life training to exhaustion. Well-organized full-body exercises can easily fit even into the busiest schedule. Just think about it: why would you spend long hours exercising when you can try an all-in-one body exercise that makes all the important muscle groups work?
More often than not, when they think of a full-body training, people get a wrong idea. Many think that it’s some light workout plan that involves going from one machine to another and taking relaxed tea breaks in between. But in reality, a well-rounded body workout is a high-intensity training plan that involves working with heavy weights with maximum number of muscle contractions. This kind of training implies fast recovery that allows for stable progress without decreasing the intensity of physical load.
Advantages of a full-body workout are numerous and obvious. First of all, it saves time, which is quite important taking into account the fast rhythm of modern life. Isn’t it great to know that you can spend only a few hours a week at your local gym and still build your muscles effectively? Second, it strengthens your cardio-vascular system preventing burnouts at the same time, which is undoubtedly critically important for your health.
Train every two or three days, and do some small cardio training during your rest days. Don’t be afraid to do heavy weight exercising, because if you don’t use heavy weights, you won’t be able to ensure the desired progress. Do an exercise for each important muscle group, up to four sets and twelve reps each. Don’t spend more than hour training: shorter workouts with higher intensity allow for more effective muscle growth than long hours of training. And last but not the least, constantly change the order in which you do you exercises for balanced growth of all muscle groups and pay special attention to nutrition and diet.
