What can you expect from your workout?
- A certified personal trainer
- Increased muscular strength and bone density
- Enhanced flexibility
- Improved cardiovascular efficiency
- Increased resistance to injury
How often should I workout?
- One or two workouts a week.
In the beginning we recommend
twice a week, if possible.
How does slow movement high intensity training work?
- Traditional strength training uses 2-6 seconds to
complete one rep. we uses approximately 20 seconds to complete a single
rep: 10 seconds to lift the weights, 10 seconds to lower it. Slowing down the
speed of movement minimizes the amount of momentum used, causing the muscles to
work harder to perform the repetition. Ultimately, each exercise is performed
to the point where the muscles are fatigued beyond exhaustion, meaning the
point where moving the weight is no longer possible without increased
acceleration. The point of complete muscle exhaustion is reached within a two
minute time frame per exercise. The combination of moving the weight slowly and
working at a high level of intensity results in the stimulation of the growth
mechanism in the muscle, leading to the building of muscle.
- Correct form is paramount to
keeping the working muscles isolated while controlling the speed of the
repetition cycle. To maintain both the form and intensity, deep concentration
and focus are needed to perform the exercise to the point of failure.
What are the overall benefits of building and maintaining muscle?
