It’s easy to skip the gym when you’re short on time.
Or maybe you go for 30-60 minutes, but don’t really do much of anything.
If you do enough of those half-effort or skipped workouts… You’ll end up wondering why you still look the same, or worse, 3 months from now.
The painfully obvious solution is to learn how to train effectively with limited time.
Try this strategy I’m about to share with you. You’ll get a huge amount of ultra high-quality work in just a fraction of the time. Seriously. A LOT can happen in 30 minutes if you bring your brain into the gym.
Scary and futuristic sounding, right? I know.
This technique was created by a man named Borge Fagerli – in an attempt to maximize his ability to grow more muscle in a short amount of time after his son was born.
It’s a unique way to set up a single, brutal set, demand a HUGE amount of work from the muscle, and trigger the mechanisms that lead to muscle growth.

HERE’S HOW TO DO IT.
For your chosen exercises, select a weight that you could use to hit 10-20 reps, but not beyond.
(Fagerli says sets of 15+ are an “otherworldly experience”, but I love them.)
Do one set, and get as many good reps as you can.
And I mean for real – push hard – until things are really burning, and then push for another 1 to 3 high-quality reps.
Put the weights down and take 3-5 deep breaths. Then pick the weights back up – you’re going to do another ‘mini-set’, where you’ll shoot for 3-6 reps.
Weights go down again, take another few breaths, and then you’ll do another mini set.
Then you’ll rest entirely for 3 minutes, before repeating.
This is a truly brutal training technique that will push you into some of the deeper, darker corners of what you ever thought you were capable of.
As a fun byproduct, you’ll send an incredibly loud and clear message to your body to build more muscle along the way.
