Is Splitting Up Your Workout A Good Idea?

Keeping a regular exercise routine can be difficult, especially as schedules, appointments and the family's extra-curricular activates can be taxing on your time.  Many people have resorted to splitting up their workouts into two sessions on the same day with surprising results.  Experts say that splitting up your workout isn't a bad idea. Doing half of your workout in the morning and the other half later in the afternoon or evening not only gives you more time flexibility with your schedule, it helps give your body rest, allowing you to work at your highest level of intensity, as long as you're not doing two full workout sessions a day.  Splitting that 60-90 minute workout into two 30-45 minute sessions can keep you focused and have greater energy and strength output. There is, however, one caveat: If you’re not used to training and you go right into two-a-day workouts, you might be more sluggish than usual, so consult with a fitness trainer for guidance.
