The Best Approach For Time Efficient Workouts

The Best Approach For Time Efficient Workouts

  1. So is it possible for you to get effective results from short 30 to 40 minute bouts of training?
  2. Are you interested in learning about effective methods to get the most out of your workouts?
  3. Do you train your body to get the best return on your fitness?
  4. Are you training to achieve optimal caloric expenditure?

So what is involved with constructing time efficient workouts? These days everyone expects immediate results, but there is no such thing. However, there is a such thing as doing things efficiently and doing things inefficiently. Therefore the more efficient you are at your approach the faster you’ll get to where you want to go. So today I want to teach you how to focus on approaching your training efficiently.

Email Question: Coach what is the best time efficient method of training?

Can I still get results within a 30 to 40 minute workout?

Answer: Yes, you can absolutely get in truly effective workouts with only 30 minutes of training.

Over the years I can’t tell you how many people I’ve seen in gyms that spend hours a day “working out”  for years and never change their appearance in the slightest.

Trust me this is a clear case of ineffective use of time. You see when looking at your training this is where your programming becomes extremely valuable.

So to clarify where I’m coming from here you need to understand something. You need to understand the distinction between general workouts and purpose driven training.

General workouts for much of the population occur without any thought or direction. Therefore if you’re just going out to the gym, or out into your neighborhood to break a sweat you’re just engaging in a general workout.

However, if you’re mapping out a plan of attack to train, or workout with a specific goal in mind then you’re engaging in more purpose driven training.

This may seem obvious when stated, but the reality is that many people aren’t engaged in purpose driven training even though they may perceive otherwise.

I say this because that novice trainee reading the latest issue of a muscle magazine may be ignorant enough to try to take on a professional bodybuilding workout. Even though the trainee would have a plan to follow in this example it wouldn’t necessarily be a viable one.

In this example a beginner needs a foundation and a reasonable amount of physical progression over time to develop an efficient plan.

So your programming is how you go about your training and this is what I pride myself in offering to my students so that their workouts are both purposeful and impactful.

So how do I go about programming especially for time efficient purpose driven workouts?

Programming depends on the goals of the individual, but if you’re interested solely in optimizing your results in as little time as possible here are a few tactics you can apply to design yourself an effective workout.

  1. Perform supersets 
  2. Perform circuits
  3. Stick to bodyweight 
  4. Apply agonist/antagonist training protocol 
  5. Perform HIIT 
  6. Apply KISS-Keep It Simple Stupid (method) 
  7. Utilize kettlebells 
  8. Perform whole body movements 

So if you can figure out an effective way to apply these tactics to design your workouts intelligently then you can absolutely get a huge return on just 30 minutes of training. Give these a try and I guaranteed you’ll get the results.

Time Efficient Workouts: The Takeaway 

So at the end of the day how you go about approaching your workouts matters. Therefore it matters based on your goals and it especially matters when you’re working with a more restricted time frame.

Are your time efficient workouts effective? 

Which one of these tactics are you leaving out of your workouts?
