Hope you’re having a great day!
I literally just found out about this new study (below) TODAY.
I felt I must share.
BETTER RESULTS IN LESS TIME????
Only yesterday I put around about 30 of my clients through
the exact training protocol that this study has been proven
to be the FASTEST method of
boosting your overall fitness whilst also meaning you don’t
train as long!!!
Its the combo of this training protocol plus our awesome
nutrition plan that gets a members sucj good results.
GET YOUR A*SE OFF THE X-TRAINER NOW!!!
So if you’re one of those people that has been slogging
away in the gym for the last 10 years & seen no improvement
in fitness or body compostion I suggest you check this out…
This might be the most interesting –
and shocking – workout study ever.
Researchers at Queen’s University tested a Fit4Life Project style
workout against long cardio (the boring kind!!!)
(Reference: Appl Physiol Nutr Metab. 2012 Sep 20.)
22 college-aged women did 4 workouts per week for 4 weeks in
one of three groups.
Group A – did 30 minutes of treadmill running at 85% max heart rate
Group B – did 8 rounds of 20 seconds of a single exercise (burpees,
jumping jacks, mountain climbers, or squat thrusts) with 10
seconds of rest between rounds.
Group C – did nothing (they were the non-training control group).
Both training groups increased their aerobic fitness levels
by the SAME amount (about 7-8%). That’s right, the short
bodyweight workouts (of 4 minutes) worked just as well
as 30 minutes of cardio. Shocking.
BUT…only Group B, the F4L style training, also increased
muscular endurance in common exercises like chest presses,
leg extensions, sit-ups, and push-ups.
And finally, the F4L style training used by Group B also
resulted in greater overall workout enjoyment.
The scientists concluded that “extremely low volume bodyweight
interval-style training” will boost cardiovascular fitness
just as well as cardio while giving you BETTER improvements
in muscle endurance.
All in just 4 minutes!
If you want a better body and improved fitness, use the Fit4Life Project
bodyweight type workouts instead of long, slow (BORING) cardio.
