Tuesday "good things come to those who sweat"

Today's workout was chest and triceps! It is important to remember that it is not the amount of time you spend in the gym that counts, but rather the amount of work you put in! Performing supersets with minimal rest between each set allows you to spend less time in the gym, while getting more bang for your buck. The same goes for HIIT training! Time is precious when  your juggling a career or school, so get the most out of your gym time and try incorporating supersets and HIIT!
