Looking to get the most out of your training? Consider downing a high protein shake an hour before your session.
Carbohydrates and protein is incredibly important in building mass muscle and helps your body repair muscle tissue from previous workouts. High protein shakes will put your body into an anabolic state, providing an extreme energy boost that will help you maximize your workouts.
As you are weight training, your muscles receive an increased amount of blood flow, and by drinking a high protein shake an hour before your session, your body is able to effectively utilize this extra protein and equalize the blood flow so your muscles are able to work at their hardest.
You'll want to keep a record of your workouts and overall progress, ensuring that you do not duplicate the same exercise within a 72 hour period.
Purchase a small notepad and write down the workouts you've done each day, the amount of time you worked out, what you've eaten, the amount of repetitions and how much weight you were able to lift during your session. Keeping a personal journal that documents your progress will also help you stay on track until you reach your goals.
When working out, give your muscles a 20 second rest in between repetitions being careful not to rest too long, otherwise your muscles will cool down and you're session won't be as effective.
To really ramp up your weight training, consider adding in 20 minutes of cardio a day to get your blood pumping, heart racing and to increase your energy and endurance. Go for a jog, grab a jump rope, or run the treadmill for 20?30 minutes before you begin strength training.
