PARTY HARD TRAIN HARD: 3 WAYS TO SUPERCHARGE YOUR WORKOUT

It's almost the end of the year, party season is here, and it's time for the final push. Temptations in the festive season are at an all time high, and if you only have a couple of hours to workout each week, it's important to squeeze in as much as you can. So it's time to pick up the pace, and make sure you train as hard as you party. Here are ONE LDN's three top tips to supercharge your workouts.


#1 LIFT WEIGHTS IN A FLEXIBLE WAY

Aim to use a full range of motion on everything. Strength is only developed in the range of motion practised, more muscle fibre is recruited and it allows you to enhance flexibility and mobility. This all results in a decreased potential for injury later on and it enables better technique on compound and Olympic lifts such as the front squat which requires open shoulders, wrists, hips, quads, calf and achilles. It also makes you a better athlete.


#2 MAKE THOSE REPS COUNT
No matter what move you undertake, whether it's crunches or push ups, when you reach your maximum rep try to hold it for as long as you possibly can. This will help your body build strength and make the most of your workout.


#3 GO OUT WITH A BANG
Aim to incorporate some intervals and go hard for the last section of your workout (ideally between 10-15 minutes). If you're out of breath and feel like you want to quit, then that's a good sign. Choose anything which gets your blood pumping, whether it's power strokes on the rowing machine, bodyweight exercises, or burpees, try to give it your all. This will do wonders for your fitness, burn calories and help you get the most out of your workout.
