These are the kind of workouts that have failure written all over them

EVERY time you work out, you must have a strategy with an objective.

The strategy? Your routine. You're trying to reduce body fat and developing lean muscle mass. So, your strategy is put the most stress on your muscles in the shortest amount of time. So you work the major muscle groups first: Chest, back, legs, and shoulders.

Secondary muscle groups are calves, biceps, and triceps. In other words, structure your workouts from big groups to small groups. Keep your workouts short, like 30-45 minutes max.

You also must have an objective for your workouts. How many reps are you going to do for each exercise? How many sets? How long are you going to rest between sets? How much weight are you going to use? How long are you going to do aerobics?

Having a structure in place allows you to focus on reaching your objective of building lean muscle and decreasing body fat - much faster. You've done your thinking, your preparing before the workout. Now you just go do it. No confusion. No long, tedious workouts. Just great results.

Did you know that stretching could actually improve your strength by 20%?

So not only is it great for flexibility and relaxation, but you can build some muscle in the process, too.

The good news is, it won't take up any extra time!

How do you do it? After you finish a set of, say, bench press, stretch your shoulders, chest, and triceps for 20 seconds. In other words, use your rest periods to do your stretching! Something better to do (and better for you) other than B.S.-ing or screwing around. Get faster results - 20% faster! Who DOESN'T want that?

(You also don't have to worry about "not having enough time" to stretch after your workout!)
