The American Council on Exercise offers these suggestions:

  • Hire a personal trainer to evaluate your workout and suggest how to maximize it.
  • Make sure your workout includes strength training, in addition to cardio exercises.
  • Explore high-intensity interval training, in addition to a steady-state workout.
  • Eat a carb-rich snack before your workout. Drink water before, during and after exercise.
  • Get six to eight hours of sleep each night.
