Workout success is no secret: you exercise, you recover, then you exercise for some more. Nevertheless, there are some shortcuts that can help you get faster results without spending a fortune on supplements and personal trainers. Here are a couple:
Start at the bottom
Starting out your workout with performing leg exercises has been shown to boost levels of testosterone and growth hormone, according to Norwegian research published in the European Journal of Applied Physiology. This can help you boost strength for the rest of the training session, thus leading to better fitness results.
Free your muscles
You don’t need pricy training machines to get into the best shape of your life. All you need is a couple of free weights and off you go. In fact, according to a study in the Journal of Strength and Conditioning Research, using free weights rather than fixed machines produces better muscle activation, thus leading to greater strength gains.
