You might think that spending hours in the gym will help you more, but you would be wrong. If you want to get leaner, stronger and healthier, 35-45 minutes of high intensity workout is perfect. Your workout routine will bring you more benefits at a higher intensity and for a shorter amount of time.
If you want to get the most out of your weightlifting routine, you need to learn some proper lifting techniques. They vary by exercise, but some common elements are keeping your back straight, engaging your abs, and keeping your head straight, chest out and shoulders back.
Instead of working on just one group of muscles, you can maximize your time by training multiple muscle groups at once and get a full-body workout. Some exercises that can help you with this are deadlifts, squats, pushups, lounges, pullups and military presses, just to name a few.
