What's The Right Amount Of Time You Should Train

Brought to you by Shawn Phillips

The answer:

It’s not about the distance (length of your workout), it's about the depth (quality of your intensity).

Join me this week when I share my insights on how to maximize your effectiveness and efficiency in the gym.

Shawn Phillips does a weekly "Start Strong" audio clip answering readers questions. I interviewed Shawn in 2003 and he became a part of my interview package at Fat Loss Insider Secrets.

I've recently cut the amount of time I spend in the gym as well. Where I once spent 2 hours at a go, then cut back to an hour (and WILL NOT go over an hour), and have recently cut back even more. I get in, get the job done and get out. It's about Hormonally Intelligent Exercise like Rob Faigen, Jeff "the muscle nerd" Anderson, Nick Nilsson and many others talk about. It makes a lot of sense.

Rob Coopers Fat burning tips In 1990 Rob weighed 475 pounds and was able to burn almost 300 lbs of fat in just two and a half years. Rob does weight management coaching from his office in Edmonton Alberta Canada. Rob's diet is based on a "System Specific Organic Whole Food" line of foods along with various fat burning, muscle building tips from Tom Venuto. Tom's Philosophy is very similar to Rob's and he's happy to recommend them

Before I gained fat. I lifted weights heavily. I lifted 3 times a week, doing each body part only once a week. My workouts were heavy weights, and no longer than 45 minutes in the gym. I gained muscle like a weed, while the guys that overtrained had the same amount of muscle years later.

Ya, the thing that I hadn't realized was that our body needs that extra day of rest and also to optimize the HGH and other hormones responsible for growth, repair and anti-aging. From what I understand, first Catabolic hormones are released in response to the heavy training, then HGH starts pumping as does Testosterone. If we interupt that whole process, we don't get as much of an advantage in terms of maximizing HGH and Testosterone.

Basically, if you trained every day, you'd have Catabolic hormones coursing through your veins on a daily basis.

With luck, you'd grow. Working out 3x a week (or 4) at least gives the body time to grow and to benefit from the anti aging hormones. Personally, I like getting younger with each passing year!
