Here is a video that I found and wanted to share with you. This simple “no equipment” home workout ca be done in less than 15 minutes and I will tell you it is super effective if done 2 to 3 times per week.
Many people will try and tell you that you have to work out 1 to 2 hours daily to get big results, and that is complete BS! Your body has to rest and working out everyday, and especially for hours is a complete waste of time and energy. Plus, it is just stupid. Besides, who has time for that kind of nonsense workouts?
Remember, your body needs rest! Many of the top fitness experts will tell you that each body part (each muscle group) needs at least 7 to 10 days rest in between workouts. I personally follow this routine above in the video, as well as I use resistance bands and my bow-flex. I still am able to keep each workout less than 30 minutes, and I ONLY work each muscle group/body part once per week.
Here is an example of my workout:
I work triceps and chest on Monday. I do 4 sets total. The first few sets is to get warm and loose, then the last 2 are until failure. I use resistance bands and keep adding bands so that I am only able to do 10 to 12 reps and do them until failure, and then that exercise is done.
Wednesday is back and biceps. I follow the procedure above.
Friday is legs and abs.
Monday I start over again with the same routine as above. This gives each muscle group a great deal of days and time to rest and recover.
If you are working out over 30 to 40 minutes per day, and more than 3 times weekly, then you are hurting yourself and wasting your time. Yes, you may be seeing results, but check with fitness “experts” and see what they have to say just like I did. I also use to be one that thought you had to workout each body part multiple times weekly and often times, daily. WRONG!
I will have videos of my own up soon for you to follow and see incredible results with. This will help you lose weight and or build muscle much quicker. I will also have the same supplements that I am using, and which I also got from a Ex-Bodybuilder and fitness expert.
I personally don’t have the time to workout an hour or two per day, and honestly have no desire to, especially now that I know the harm it does to your body, muscles and joints. Most people either start working out and quit, or never start due to the false beliefs of how it takes hours a day to lose weight and build muscle.
Why is it that people once they reach their late 30’s and enter into their 40’s start piling on the weight? The reason is our body’s start losing muscle at these ages, and if we aren’t doing something to build muscle, then we gain weight. You may be eating the same or less than ever before, but still gain weight? This is the reason for that. For each 1# of muscle you have it burns 100 calories per day. This is why having muscle, and keeping fit will burn those unwanted calories that will automatically show up.
