Tucker: A change of pace

I’ve been cutting down the time on my workouts to right around 30 minutes of actual weight lifting and I’m feeling great. I was feeling myself getting dragged down and tired off and on for a couple weeks, and when I talked to Noel about it he said to cut down the rest time in between sets and hit the workouts just like I did up at his gym in Portland.

You won’t necessarily be able to go super hard and heavy, especially with bigger movements, but with dumbbells and machines it’s really easy to warm up and get after it. I’ve been starting my workouts with either a single or multi jointed machine movement to get warm and stimulate the muscle, and then get some form or DB and/or bar work in and then finishing off with machines.

I’ve still been doing a super thorough warm up of all the stuff Craig has given me to work on and that takes about 20 minutes, so total time in the gym is around 50 minutes. It takes a little longer on the days I do calves, but even then it’s right around an hour.
