8 Ways to Make Your Workout MORE Productive

If you are like most people, you probably have a lot of daily activities. It is easy to fall into the trap of trying to get everything done at once. This is why we feel it is so important to have a routine in place when it comes to fitness. Nobody ever said working out was easy. But there are ways to make it more productive, so you can see results faster and feel better doing it. Here are 8 Ways to Make Your Workout MORE Productive:

These workout tips will help you to maximize your workout time and get more out of every workout.

1. Workout with a friend:

You can push each other, encourage one another and make more out of the workout. The more people you are working out with, the more motivation you’ll have to stick with it for a longer period of time and you’ll have more fun doing it.

2. Make a workout playlist:

Your music can help you get into the zone for an intense workout or just make a long run more enjoyable.  You’ll be able to power through tough workouts and also enjoy an easier workout if you like the music you’re listening to.

3. Set realistic goals:

Set small and realistic goals so that you’ll be able to find motivation whenever you are unmotivated.  Start off making your goals easy and then make them harder as you go on.

4. Find a workout routine that fits your schedule and uses the equipment you have:

This means avoiding over-scheduling or trying to fit too much in at once.  It also means choosing exercises that you like doing and are going to look forward to with the equipment that is accessible to you.

5. Incorporate strength training into your workout routine: 

Strength training builds muscle, and muscle burns calories even when you’re not working out. Strength training also helps with posture and joint pain, and it decreases osteoporosis risk, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

7. Stretch before and after your workout:  

 stretching initiates recovery. When you take time to stretch before your workout and after, you open up blood flow and oxygenate your muscles so you can go harder during your workout, and recover faster after.

8. Hydrate before, during, and after your workout:   

  Before you even step into the gym, grab a bottle of water and drink it down. At least a half hour before you start your workout, drink another large glass of water. Frequent sips of water will keep your energy level up without filling you up with sugar. As you start your workout, don’t be afraid to chug a glass or two of water at regular intervals. It will help keep your energy level up and make sure you don’t get dehydrated.
