Don’t split by body part

Change your training style to include more than one body part. Super setting upper- and lower-body moves will increase your heart rate with no impact on the second muscle group, all the while increasing your heart rate and burning more calories.

Always aim for more

Keep track of your workouts and try to improve. Rather than training until you can’t lift your arms, get a programme in place: aim to do more reps, lift more weight or complete your workout faster. Progressive overload is more than just lifting more weight for a few reps.

Increase your frequency

Hit each muscle group with two to three exercises two to three times a week. You will see a huge difference in your recovery and most likely muscle growth by increasing training frequency. For four weeks, try an upper-lower split or three full-body workouts a week, and keep track of how you look and feel.
