In bodybuilding, we have to continue to tweak our workouts if we want to get results. Training the same way, all the time will only get us so far. Lucky for you, there are a few ways to tweak your workout routine. In fact, we’ll discuss four ways to tweak your workouts.
Train Entire Body
The key to getting results is to keep your muscles guessing and to shock your body. One of the best ways to do this is to train your entire body at least 2-3 times per month. What you can do is choose to do one exercise per body part and then do each one for 20-30 reps, but you’ll only do one set per body part.
Start With An Isolation Movement
A lot of people start off with a compound or power movement. When it comes to bodybuilding and making gains, you want to shake things up, which is why you should start with an isolation movement for each workout. For example, instead of starting off your chest workout with the bench press, choose to do pec-deck flyes or dumbbell flyes. Start off with concentration dumbbell curls instead of barbell curls and so forth.
Do Push-ups In Between Sets
Regardless of what body part you’re training, you should do push-ups in between sets. For example, after you complete one set of barbell squats, you can do 5-10 push-ups before doing your second set of barbell squats. Do this throughout the entire workout, but do this 3-4 times per week. If this is too intense for you, then only do it 1-2 times per week.
Do Cardio In Between Body Parts
For 5-6 weeks, you should train at least two body parts every workout you do. Your abs can count too. With that said, you will want to do cardio in between body parts, but only do 5-10 minutes of intense cardio. For example, you can do your chest and then 10 minutes of jogging, followed by an ab workout. If you were to train another body part after your ab workout, then you would do 5-10 more minutes of cardio.
Train your entire body every now and then. Do cardio in between body parts, do push-ups in between sets and start with an isolation exercise for each workout. If you do these four things and you do them regularly, then you could end up getting amazing results.
