Lately, because I have been very short on time, due to work, business travel and some summer vacationing. I have learned to be unconventional and inventive with my bodybuilding workouts. For example, the other day I was making an appearance at a Vitamin World in Houston, Texas. I had no car to go to the gym but it was at a walking distance. My time was limited since I had to head back to the airport that day. Thus, I decided to speedwalk to the gym, which took me 15 minutes. I then trained my arms and abs non-stop (see the full bodybuilding routine below) for 35 minutes. Finally, I did another speedwalk of 15 minutes back to the hotel. So as you can see, I unconventionally got both my weight training and cardiovascular workouts at the same time!
So the lesson to learn here is to stay focused and limit your training time in the gym. I have always talked (as well as many other experts such as Martin Bolduc and Lee Labrada) about how 45 minutes of training is the ideal amount of time to train in order to keep testosterone levels high and cortisol levels low. Therefore, go to the gym, look at the clock as soon as you start your first set, and make sure that you are done by the time 45 minutes have expired. And in order to get more work done in that time, use supersets, trisets and giantsets in order to expedite your workouts.
Stay focused and on target and you will see how your bodybuilding gains will skyrocket!
