Do you know the 2 biggest reasons men and women stop exercising?
1) Lack of time
2) Lack of motivation
Let's tackle "Lack of Time" today with 5 ways you can get your
workouts done faster. After all, no one should spend more than 50 minutes in the gym.
Here are 5 ways to cut your workout time.
I use "non-competing" superset. This means, choose two exercises for different muscle groups - and preferably completely opposite movements. For example, choose a push and a pull. That way, one muscle group rests while the other works...and you cut the rest time you need between sets.
b) Choose a better warmup strategy
Don't waste 10 minutes walking on the treadmill. Instead, use a
total body circuit of bodyweight exercises as a general warmup, and then move directly into specific warm-up sets for your first two exercises.
c) Pair dumbbell and bodyweight exercises together in your
This saves you time at home (you don't need to change the dumbbell weight between exercises) and in the gym (you don't need to fight for 2 sets of dumbbells).
d) Choose Intervals over slow cardio
The latest research shows more weight loss when people use
intervals, and intervals take half as long to do.
e) Limit the use of isolation exercises
Pick multi-muscle exercises, such as squats, pulls, pushes, and
rows. If you have time, you can squeeze in some dropsets for arms and shoulders if you want. However, if you only have 3 sessions of 45 minutes per week, isolation exercises must be the first to go.
In addition, don't spend more than 10 minutes per week on direct ab training. It's not efficient and won't give you rock hard abs alone.

Beginners should also start with the Introductory TT workouts to prepare their muscles for the upcoming intense training.
For others, it's best to start with the Intermediate Level TT
workouts. If those aren't enough of a challenge, you can move onto the Original TT workout and follow the 16-week advanced program right through.
If at any time you need a break, try the TT Bodyweight 4-week plan.
And then finish off with the TT Fusion Fat Loss program followed by the 30-day Maximum Fat Loss program to cap off a full 24 weeks of Advanced TT fat loss workouts.
After that, choose between the TT for Women or TT for Muscle
