High Intensity- No matter how you work out and how much energy you are utilizing in the exercise you have give yourself enough time to rest and relax. After performing high intensity exercise or activity allow your body to rest sufficiently. The best way for strength training is to perform high intensity exercise in a short duration.

Frequency of the training- You have to maintain proper frequency of exercise and rest. It is seen that after a high intensity session the muscles gets tired. Thus by allowing the time for repairing the muscles you are reaping the benefits by building the muscles. If you start training for strength properly then you can see visible results within the first 7 days itself.

Time Your Exercise- Since this type of training involves high intensity exercises it is not possible to work out at a stretch for more than 20 minutes. Your glucose levels may crash and you may run out of energy. Compound movements are the best if you want to use maximum amount of energy. Even if you can handle more than 3 high energy exercise you must take a day’s rest to maximize the effect.

Sets- You may perform a set of exercise and still have energy for more. This means your sets of exercise are not correct. For endurance training you need to have high intensity workout sets that will leave you exhausted. This is the key to success. Choose just one set of exercise but that should be powerful enough. A lean and fit body is not everything you want but you need to have some muscles to endure the rigorous routine.
