Want to sabotage your own workout? Then take long breaks between every set. Not only will you make that workout unnecessarily long, you’ll let your heart rate drop to a point where you’re burning few, if any, calories.
If you want to boost your chances of reaching your fitness goals, whatever they may be, don’t let off the throttle when in the middle of a workout. By reducing the amount of rest time between sets, you’ll keep your heart going and increase your chances of burning fat and calories.
