Exercise: Train Smarter, Not Harder
You don’t have to spend hours a day in the weight room to get the body you’ve been dreaming of. In fact, when it comes to fitness, more is not always better. One of the biggest mistakes the people make was overtraining. Some worked out with weights six or seven days a week and didn’t give my body a chance to rest. Muscles grow during rest periods. You break down muscle fibers during workouts, stimulating them to regrow bigger and stronger with the help of proper nutrition and adequate rest.
Weight training is essential, but the key words should be short and intense. You’ll lift weights only every other day (three or four times per week) and for no more than an hour at a time. You also don’t need to worry about joining a gym because most of the exercises I recommend can be done at home with a basic set of adjustable dumbbells and an inexpensive bench.
Blood-sugar and insulin levels are lowest in the morning, when your stomach is empty. That’s the perfect environment for burning fat.
