As I'm sure you've become aware of over the last few weeks, these training sessions are long. If you're taking the proper rest periods—and I hope you are—you're probably realizing that these workouts take over an hour. I know that we're all busy people, and sometimes time spent training is limited.

When you're in a time crunch, be sure to still focus on the main compound movement, and skip a bit of the accessory work if necessary. As long as you get your big lift in, you can rest assured that you're making progress. Put in the work, and you'll reap the results.
