40 minute weight sessions 3 times per week, and 30 minute cardio sessions 2 times per week is ALL you need to obtain amazing results.
By adding more exercise you risk eating into your recovery time which is when your results really occur. This is especially important if you lead a busy lifestyle, get less than 8 hours sleep, and/ or you’re over 40.
If you’re tempted to do more, ask yourself…
Did I work hard enough?
Did I reach muscular failure on the majority of my sets?
Did I make every set and every repetition count?
Don’t forget, it’s the intensity of your workouts – not duration - that produces the most positive changes in terms of body composition. (in concert with adequate recovery and good nutrition)
When it comes to body transformation, quality, versus quantity, wins hands down every time.
