A popular quote says: Failing to plan means you are planning to fail
The best advice we can give you is taking a day where you set your schedule for the week. You write down your goals for the week, the day you'll train and what will be your training, when you will prepare your meal and what would they be. When you have an unexpected meeting or events, you can still manage to move some of your occupation or make a rest-day a non-rest day checking your calendar.
Be surrounded by people with your vision
If you have friends, family or co-worker with the same goals of you, it is easier to stay focus. You can talk with these people of what you want to achieve, and they can push you. It is a great way of staying motivated. Also, planning workout with people force you to be there at the time and do it.
Be efficient in the gym
It is false that you need to stay at least an hour and a half in the gym to have the body of your dream. The workout you missed, is the only bad workout you can have. Even a small 20 minutes in your gym, in your basement or outside makes the difference. And if you have more than 20 minutes? Great, but it is important to manage this time to make the most out of it. Don't chill 3 minutes between your series, don't talk with people to finally forget your set, don't text on your phone, be focused on your plan you've already set up. You'd be surprised at how 20 minutes can be hard when you use it correctly.
When you time is limited, your training should be intense. Increase the intensity by keeping rest periods short, using challenging weight and developing high-volume training. Your heart rate should be elevated during your entire workout, and you should leave the gym with a feeling of tiredness, but also an accomplishment.
Do you run out of time for your cardio? The Same pattern can be applied. Don't waste 60 minutes of slow treadmill walk if you do not have this time. Get more of your day by doing HIIT. High-intensity interval training also has lots of benefits. Looks all the details about those training in our article. Experiment and have fun doing your workout.
