  • Planning. Planning is really important. Knowing which exercises you are going to be doing, the equipment that you’ll need, and being aware of how much time you have, as well as locations, is very important. 
  • Time. This doesn’t just mean how much time you have to do your workout, it is also making sure that you are knowing the timings of each set, making sure you are giving yourself enough time between eating and working out, and giving yourself time to cool down your muscles to get back to your work again.
