Consistent weight training can provide many benefits. In addition to counting reps for each muscle group, following these suggestions should make for a more efficient workout:
Be sure you hydrate yourself frequently, drinking 8 to 10 glasses of water every day. Not doing so can lead to feeling weak and sick. Drink water during your workout, too.
Bracket each session with a small, nutritious meal. Eat 30 to 60 minutes before and 60 minutes after. Include lean proteins – chicken, beef, fish, and turkey – plus complex carbohydrates, such as oats and rice. A huge meal is not required; take in just enough to heal and rejuvenate.
To motivate yourself, keep a record of your progress. Technology such as workout trackers can help you see the details of your exercises. You also can document your progression by taking photographs.
If you are doing cardiovascular exercises, refrain from them until after your strength workout. You can also do them at separate times during the day.
