If your workouts have enough intensity, you won’t need to spend way too much time in the gym and I guarantee you that you won’t have the strength to train longer. Fortunately, lately more people who work out, realize that “more” doesn’t always mean “better”. This is so true for workouts! Longer training sessions aren’t an equivalent to more effective workouts!

Let’s first find out what intensity means. (more…)
