3 Tips To Up Your Strength Training Game

Build Your Core

Your core muscles stabilize movement and transfer force throughout your body, so building them will enable you to unlock increased power and performance.

Whether you want to get the abs of your dreams or whether you just want to increase your gym performance, building your core muscles through strength training is the way to go.

Avoid Overtraining

Overtraining may not seem like a major hazard, but it can leave you tired, injured and out of the gym for weeks. Don’t push yourself too hard, if your muscles feel sore then it’s time to allow yourself a rest day.

Constantly training prevents your body from healing any muscle tears or sprains, making short term injuries into long term problems. Take a day off and give your body time to recover.

Add Variety To Your Workouts

As you probably already know, doing the same amount of exercises over and over won’t challenge your body or your mind. Your body builds up tolerance when the same exercises are used over and over, so their gym performance impact is greatly reduced over time.

Vary the amount and types of exercises in your workouts to see big gym gains. Incorporate a jump rope, a swiss ball or resistance bands to give your workouts a boost.
