Getting yourself to your gym is the first step, but how much time should you really be spending there? When it comes to the many health club fitness tips out there, this is one that can be surprisingly confusing.
Many people ask us: How long should my workout be?
Well, that is a difficult thing to answer…
First of all, when you say length, what do you mean?
The total time between walking into the gym and walking out? Time actually being off your phone and focusing on exercises? Do you deduct any gym talk? Or the time you spend flexing while thinking nobody sees you checking yourself in the mirror? Or do you just go in and get straight to your regular health club fitness routine?
Hopefully by now you get my point…
I have observed many people working out at the gym, and the most important thing that comes to my mind is: Intensity. How much do you actually focus on why are you here? Why ARE you here really? Do you have a plan that you are here to execute? How much time do you spend between each set/rep? Are you just going through the motions to say, “yeah, I worked out today,” or do you give it your all for every rep, every set?
So, why is the perfect amount of time to dedicate to your workout ever even mentioned? Mainly, because we as humans like to categorize everything because it kind of gives you an idea of what you should expect…
So…what should you do to figure out how much time you should spend working out?
1. Carefully analyze your fitness goals: muscle gain, fat loss, strength, endurance etc.
2. Make a plan according to these goals – this mainly pertains to training split: How many days a week will I lift, and how many will I do cardio?
3. Also base your plan on that what muscles you will hit on which day.
Here are some examples on how you can maximize your time and results with your health club fitness routine
Example: Gym 3x week:
Day 1: Back, Biceps, Abs + Cardio
Day 2: Rest or Cardio
Day 3: Chest, Triceps, Abs + Cardio
Day 4: Rest or Cardio
Day 5: Legs, Glutes, Shoulders + Cardio
Day 6: Rest or Cardio
Day 7: Rest or Cardio
Example: Gym 5x week:
Day 1: Back& Biceps
Day 2: Lower Body
Day 3: Chest& Abs
Day 4: Rest
Day 5:Shoulders, Triceps
Day 6: Lower Body
Day 7: Cardio-go run with your dog
So, clearly, the person who has to hit more muscle groups in one day will most likely spend more time at the gym than if they were going to the gym five times a week and having the same goal.
A person who has higher motivation and bigger goals will also spend more time at the gym each time, no matter how many times a week they go.
If you spend 90 minutes at the gym taking selfies…well, now you can imagine what our advice would be.
