How can I be more productive in the gym?

Dec 12 / Build Muscle

Todd, Las Vegas, NV asked: How can I be more productive in the gym? Answer: Time your rest intervals. By carefully monitoring rest periods between sets, you can accomplish in 30 minutes what used to take an hour. What's more, your levels of muscle-building hormones will soar throughout your workout. This increases size and attacks your body's fat stores. Try resting 30 to 45 seconds between sets if your primary goal is endurance; 60 to 90 seconds for muscle growth; and 2 to 3 minutes between sets for serious strength gains.
