I have been really trying to maximize my personal time in the gym. I am currently teaching 6 classes, so that doesn’t leave a ton of time for my own personal workouts. I decided to try to incorporate more compound strength training workouts into my classes and daily gym sessions. If you are not familiar with compound strength training it is where you combine multiple muscle groups while lifting. Lately I have been focusing on combining two moves together to create one exercise. Using compound movements can increase strength and burn more calories. The goal is to move through this workout with very little rest unless you need it. I can tell you that my heart rate has been up constantly in these workout sessions. This is also a great way to get a total body workout in a shorter amount of time. Here is one of the workouts I did this week.
Give this a try and let me know what you think in the comments! Have a great weekend.
