Years ago in the New York Times a star track-and-field athlete wrote an article.
She talked about how doing a shorter exercise routine that was less intense gave her better results.
After altering the intensity of my own workouts I can tell you this athlete was right:
I have the bulging biceps to prove that changing the frequency and intensity of your exercise sessions can make all the difference.
I’ve changed to lifting weights for 35 to 40 minutes with a 5 minute warm-up and 5 minute cool-down. For a total of 40 to 45 minutes each session.
You might find better luck with a different exercise plan. However so far this has worked like a charm for me.
Changing the Frequency Intensity or Time of your workouts can help.
As well I remember that sometimes you have to do what’s called a “de-load”: take it easy in the first session of a new routine.
I’m 8 years older than when I first started lifting weights.
Adapting as you go along can help you maintain an exercise habit for the long-term.
