Trying to really decrease your WOD time? You can do so by intensifying your workouts. In our last post, we gave you our first three tips on how to accomplish this. To recap part one, we talked about giving 200% effort, reducing rest times, and more. You can read these intense tips here.
Today we’re going to give you a few more tricks that you can use to reduce times and improve your overall workouts. If you’re searching for a new gym, a new challenge, or the best fitness classes in Raleigh NC, call Invoke. We’re the best Raleigh gym for beginners, experts, and all levels in between!
More Tips That Will Intensify Your Workouts
Even Superman has a weakness. So spend extra time working on yours. Think of it as homework. Furthermore, the more you work on your weaknesses, the stronger you’ll get in other areas. Get creative with your weakness training as well. If you need to work on your grip strength, start trying to rip phone books in half. This is super hard to do but makes your hands stronger. I usually do this will all of the junk mail I get. The more you rip, the bigger your pile gets, so the harder it becomes to continue reducing it.
Welcome the Pain
You have to change your mindset to welcoming the pain, instead of thinking of it as a negative. When you embrace the pain, you’re embracing gains. Just like the old saying goes, “no pain, no gain!”
Add a Set
Just like with the tip of pushing yourself in part one, a great way to accomplish this is by adding sets to your workout. If the WOD calls for 3 – 5 sets, shoot for 6 – 8.
Maybe the information we’ve provided in the last few posts will help you increase the intensity of your workouts. The really awesome part is that these tips work great for home workouts, and the ones you do at our gym in Raleigh. But guess what, we’ve got even more awesome tips for intensity coming right up.
