Ok Alex, where the heck are you going with all of this? Glad you asked! Over the past year and a half, my workouts have become much more streamlined and efficient with the time I have available. There is absolutely no reason to spend over an hour in a gym unless you are training for a specific event or an athlete.
These days, I spend no more than 50 minutes in the gym, 10 minutes cardio warmup and 30-35 strength-training, and I still see results I am proud of. With such limited time, I head to the gym with a plan (usually workouts Nick puts together!). We also do a fair amount of supersetting to get the most bang for our buck with our time.
What is supersetting? Supersetting is performing 2 exercises, one right after the other, with no rest in between. It is considered a more advanced style of lifting that can produce significant results by increasing your workout intensity.
Want to try supersetting yourself? Here is the lower body superset workout I did this morning that really got my legs b.u.r.n.i.n.g!
