You’ve probably heard a lot of exercise advice from not only your gym buddies, over the internet or television or even trainers the gym.

However, one is also subject to conflicting advice as well. Keeping this in mind, here are 4 tips that will help make a difference to your fitness routine:

#1: Opt for Interval Training

Slow cardio will take much longer to a leaner body. Instead, interval training is far more effective. Just 15 to twenty minutes should do and will keep your body burning calories after you are done with your workout.

#2: Work Your Core before Every Exercise

Your core is a very important group of muscles and which serves the important function of protecting your spine while keeping you upright. It’s very important to keep your back healthy, maintain a rigid body position as well as keep your balance steady. This will also benefit you by

#3: Use free weights instead of machine exercises

Since machines have been built with a specific path that the weight has to travel, it won’t help if you are too tall or short or if your arms and legs aren’t of similar length. Using these machines could cause injury and weaknesses. Instead, use dumbbells, barbells and medicine balls to build strength the safe way.

#4: Increase your range of motion for each rep

When you increase your range of motion for each rep, you add more work while also increasing the efficiency of your workout. In other words, squat a little deeper or bring the weight until it is only an inch or two above your chest. Get that much more from each exercise and you’ll be the better for it.
