1. Eat Healthy Carbohydrate Before Training.
This provides your body with energy to train harder and improve your ability to use carbohydrate as fuel. The Low carb Craze has started to swing back towards a more sensible carbohydrate intake mainly at breakfast and before training. The rest of the day when you want to maintain energy and blood sugar eat lower carb options such as chicken and salad or some other meat and vegetables.
2. Experiment with Different Training Programmes
Here at the WOSSOBAMA GYM we provide you with a new programme every 8 weeks. This allows your body to get better at that programme and then be able to move on to another training programme with a different focus. So ask us for a weights programme, kettlebell options, Thai fighter type training, conditioning workouts or anything you fancy. Put us to the test to give you a programme to keep you motivated and excited to train.
3. Perform Weight Training First in the Workout and Cardio Afterwards.
You should do each workout in this order so you use most of your energy to get stronger and build your muscle mass which burns the most calories 24 hours a day 7 days a week. I can’t imagine anyone wanting to do squats, bench press or even curls after doing hard cardio. Cardio or conditioning is safer and more effective when done while your body is lower on energy and will use more fat as fuel and you don’t need to concentrate on performing hard weight training.
