“Slow and Steady Wins the Race!”
Whoever said that probably didn’t win many races.
The same applies to your workouts. If you take your time and go slow with your weight training you will be very disappointed with your overall results. I don’t mean you should rush through sets and disregard form, technique and safety.
What I mean is taking your time between exercises or sets with long periods of rest. Keep rest periods to a minimum! You know best how you feel. If you need to take a longer break, then take one – but be honest.
Another great use of time is completing abdominal exercises or other less-strenuous exercises during your rest breaks. This will shorten the time you spend in the gym and give you maximum benefits during your workouts.
