As a person who has tried several different workout spreads (days of exercise vs days of rest) I only recently realized the most significant benefit of doing something active 5 days per week, especially for people just starting their fitness journey.
At its core, the most significant benefit of training five consecutive days is increased will power! I’ve found in myself and in clients that exercising daily greatly aids in the ability to fight urges to cheat on a nutrition plan. Pushing yourself to exercise daily both physically and mentally challenging but also extremely rewarding! You will be far less likely to reach for a bag of potato chips or sweets when experiencing a daily dose of accomplishment from your workouts.
But at LeoFitLabs we have discovered that two INTENSE, and very short, 20 minutes, of exercise is enough to maintain, and even build muscle. Using the ARX computerized exercise machines, plus a live personal trainer (personal training) we can help you get fitter in 40 minutes a week. On the other days, go for walks, run, swim or other activities but just two short intense sessions will keep you in shape and improve you overall fitmens.
