Making the Most of an Hour Long Gym Session

By | November 24, 2014

People are busy, and it’s not always possible to visit the gym for several hours a day. If you only have an hour to spare then make sure you’re working yourself to the max. For weight loss, it’s recommended that you spend time on the treadmill, the cross trainer and the bicycle machines.

It can be wise to set a target of calories that you will want to burn during an hour, and then you should aim to build on this over several weeks. If you manage to burn 400 calories before or after work, you’ll certainly begin to see a drop in weight, as long as the food you’re eating is healthy.

If you’re looking to build muscle, then an hour long session can really take its toll on your body, so try to work different areas. Working your biceps only for an hour can leave you feeling destroyed, but by spending 5-10 minutes each on your back, legs, torso, chest and shoulders, you’re able to get a full body workout, feeling less sore the next day.
