Question: My schedule is crazy this time of year. What’s the best way to maximize gym efforts when I’m able to train?

Answer: Combine your cardio with your weight training. All that really means is reducing your rest time and performing more circuits.

You can guarantee your heart will be beating out of your chest, and you’ll be triggering the potential for plenty of fat loss, too.
