Tips for Making the Most of Your Gym Time

  • Eat well – Make sure to eat good meals in the time leading up to your workout. Unless you’re cutting, carbs are great for providing the short-term burst of energy you need. Protein, on the other hand, is best for post-workout meals when your muscles need new building material.
  • Use compound exercises – Exercises such as the deadlift and squat (lower body), and bench press and overhead press (upper body) develop multiple muscle groups at the same time, providing a more efficient workout.
  • Be consistent, but know when to change it up – Regular workouts are key to continuous improvement, but trying out variations of your usual exercises can help you identify any muscles that you’ve been neglecting.
  • Get a good night’s sleep – Aim for eight hours of good sleep on the night after a workout. Your body gets stronger by repairing the exercised muscles, and rest is essential for this process.
