5 Shocking Truths About Your Workout

1. You Don't Need To Train 45-60 minutes Every Single Day

The length of time you spend working out is NOT the most important factor to get sexy results. Instead it’s the intensity and amount of work you get done in the time you have.

Training time is not like a bank savings account. The old thought is, the more you invest and accumulate, the greater return.

Exercise doesn’t work like that.

You need to maximize the afterburn effect, which is the time post workout where you continue burning calories while your body is recovering. The best way to do this is to boost your workout intensity.

Keep you workouts shorter, around 20-30 minutes. Obviously, you don't have a second to waste.

2. Recovery is Essential

When you train hard, the recovery time is just as important as your workout itself.

You see, what you do in between your workouts will impact your results and ability to perform.

How can you speed up recovery?

Rest and minimal stress. It might sound too simple, but resting, unplugging and chilling out are harder than ever.

Make sure you get 8 hours of quality sleep every night

3. Average Workouts Are Not Good Enough

STOP settling for less and be awesome.

Ask yourself this: did you give every rep, every set and every movement your best effort in your workout today? Or did you hold back?

Listen, I know you can do better. You're not giving 100% every workout, and that's why you're not getting results.

You can't hold back.

4. Fancy Equipment Is NOT Necessary

You don't need an expensive gym membership or fancy machines to get fast, fat loss results.

With a combination of bodyweight and dumbbells as resistance, you CAN transform your body, as long as you follow a program and progress the movements.

The latest and greatest workout gadget might be a fun addition to spice up your training, but it will not get you magical results.

5. Fat Loss Workouts are Tough

Fat loss workouts are not supposed to be easy. If you find yourself feeling comfortable during a fat loss workout, you’re doing something wrong.

You have to push yourself to keep going. Remember, it's a shorter workout.

Train hard, stay safe and keep on rocking it.
