Is there really no time in the day to get your bodybuilding workouts in? It seems that the biggest culpript today for not getting a bodybuilding workout in is lack of time to workout. Lack of training equipment seems to be the second biggest excuse. However, how much time do you really need in order to get a good bodybuilding workout in and how much equipment? Let’s take a closer look at this dilemma.
How many hours do we have in one day? Unless I am wrong, I believe there are still 24 hours in one day. Each hour is composed of 60 minutes each. Granted, 8 of them we spend sleeping (or at least we should). Therefore, we end up with 16 hours left. Do you know what that means? It means that if we workout for an hour a day we have 16 opportunities to get a workout in. Now, if you are really tight on time, great workouts can be achieved in 30 minutes as well. Performing 30 minute bodybuilding workouts means that we have 32 opportunities to get a workout in. Can you imagine?! 32 opportunities to get a bodybuilding workout in!
From my experience in working with clients, most people just want to lose fat and firm up a bit using bodybuilding. For this group of folks, certainly 30 minutes is more than enough. If people would invest this minimum amount of time into themselves, not only would the whole population look better, but everyone would also feel more energetic, have much less health problems, and have a much more positive outlook on life.
Now, I can hear that the second biggest excuse for not getting your bodybuilding workouts in is: “I don’t have access to a gym or equipment”. My comment back is “where there is a will there is a way!”.
To be honest, you don’t need any expensive equipment to be able to get in shape. All you need at the very least is pair of adjustable dumbbells like the Powerblocks or the Ironmaster dumbbells. They don’t occupy that much space, so please don’t give me the “I don’t have enough space in my house” type of excuse.
In the articles below, you will find several bodybuilding routines that are short and that use minimum equipment. Implement any of them and see how your bodybuilding results will soar even though you will be spending very little of your day at the gym:
