10 Things You Need To Do To Improve Your Workout Session

By Beverleigh H Piepers

Gearing up for the gym? If so, there are a few points you should keep in mind to help you maximize your results. Plain and straightforward, you can do one of two things. You can hit the gym and go through the movements, putting in the effort as you go. Or, you can hit the gym with a purpose and mental tenacity commanding results.

Which do you want to do? By acting on the following ten points in order, you can feel confident you are making the very most of your workout session. Here's what you need to keep in mind...

1. Always warm-up. Take 5 to 10 minutes, in the beginning, to hop on the bike or treadmill. It will get your blood pumping and your body ready for exercise.

2. Perform one warm-up set. Take a few minutes and do this warm-up set. It will help reduce injuries and ensure you are ready to move forward.

3. Focus on your breathing. Using the wrong breathing can decrease your strength output significantly, reducing the progress you experience.

4. Keep your abs tight. On almost all moves you do, a tight core will help keep you stabilized and above your feet - a requirement for proper form.

5. Feel the muscle contraction. Picture in your mind the muscle contracting so you get a powerful mind-muscle connection.

6. Stay hydrated. Even slight amounts of dehydration can significantly decrease your performance. Plain water is best.

7. Pack a healthy pre-workout snack. You should eat 200 to 300 calories about an hour before your session consisting of both carbohydrates and protein. These foods will help ensure you can give maximum effort.

8. Monitor your rest periods. You want your rest time to be long enough so you are recovering and can give the best effort moving forward, but not so much time you are losing the momentum of the workout.

9. Try a new exercise! Every so often, change things around. Changing your exercise routine around will help you bust through progress plateaus and ensure your body keeps responding.

10. Set goals for every workout session. Make sure with each workout you accomplish a particular goal. Having a goal will help prevent you from going to the gym aimlessly and also help break down the longer term goal you have set for yourself.

If you keep these tips in mind, you should have no problem moving forward and seeing the results you desire.
