FIT­NESS:

Empowered Youth Magazine - - CONTENTS: -

If you find it merely too hard to twig to a work­out plan, why not try a full-body work­out pro­gram? Yes you will still have to work hard but in less time. Build­ing mus­cles is all about spend­ing hours at the gym, right? The only true way to build a chis­elled, brawny physique is hours upon hours of slav­ing away over rusty iron, day af­ter day, year af­ter year. Well, maybe not. Yes, hard work is still needed. Like any­thing in life, you get out of your work­outs what you put in. How­ever, you don't have to train on a split sys­tem four or more days each week to see gains. The full-body work­out can help you progress and is easy to fit into your sched­ule. If you're find­ing it sim­ply too hard to stick to a work­out plan, why not try a full- body work­out pro­gram? The idea of work­ing your whole body in one train­ing ses­sion has got­ten stereo­typed. Many peo­ple pic­ture a light­weight cir­cuit work­out de­signed so that the trainee is hop­ping from ma­chine to ma­chine, while in between work­outs, he's read­ing up on the lat­est celebrity gos­sip. A real full-body work­out per­formed by an ath­lete with a goal in mind in­duces max­i­mal mus­cle con­trac­tion with heavy weights, al­lows for full re­cov­ery so you can grow and still train hard, and pre­vents the in­evitable burnout caused by over­train­ing.

BEN­E­FITS OF A FULL-BODY WORK­OUT:

Saves Time: Prob­a­bly the big­gest pos­i­tive about train­ing your en­tire body at once is that your gym fre­quency de­creases to around two to three times ev­ery seven days. Plus, you'll only be spend­ing an hour in the gym for each ses­sion. Build mus­cle with only 3-4 hours of gym time dur­ing a week?

Boosts your Car­dio­vas­cu­lar Sys­tem: Squeez­ing a solid 2-4 sets per body part into a 60- minute work­out ses­sion gets your car­dio­vas­cu­lar sys­tem up to speed in a hurry.
