Devoting time to exercise is crucial to a person’s physical and mental well-being. But that time devoted to exercise is limited. Why not make the most of it? The determining factor in how effective your workout is lies in your approach to working out and how you utilize that precious workout time. That age-old question of quantity vs. quality applies to your workout routines. It isn’t necessarily a question of how long you work out but how you work out that determines your success. If you need a workout switch-up and want a break from workout volume, try incorporating High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) into your routine.
Spend less time exercising. Burn fat quicker. Finish with a more effective workout.
