If you find time an issue to get to the gym, learn to prioritise what’s most important to train for overall body composition, so that you hit all the muscles in your body!
If you've got a busy week stacked up ahead and can only get to the gym a couple times, don’t prioritise muscle groups like biceps and miss out on the more beneficial muscle groups. Your arms and core come into play with just about any exercise you perform and will get a slight workout simply by working the large muscle groups. Although I make every effort to get to the gym, sometimes work, exams and vacations can disrupt my schedule.
1. Legs (seriously, don’t skip it)
If you train these muscle groups, whether it’s in individual sessions or grouped together, you will always be training arms and core. These muscle groups also burn the most amount of energy and will help to keep you lean and fit.If you happen to train multiple large muscles groups in the same workout, then stick to large compound exercises such as squats, lunges, bench press, dips, deadlifts, clean and press, barbell rows, pull ups, overhead press, upright rows. This will ensure you are stimulating as many muscles as possible and triggering anabolic hormonal reactions that help build more muscle and burn more fat.
