High Intensity Training

Less is more when it comes to training and exercise programs.

Spending hours in the gym won't necessarily get you faster or better results and, in fact, could impede your progress and leave you injured.

Best results come from high intensity quick workouts.

When you are performing resistance training exercises, push yourself to the point where you really can't do another rep.

With aerobic or cardiovascular training, opt for 20 minutes of high intensity intervals.  You'll burn many more calories in total than doing long duration low intensity training. 

High intensity training will be much more time efficient, which lets face it, is a very common excuse for not exercising.  You'll notice improved results, feel energised and burn calories faster for the rest of the day.

Avoid over training

Too much time exercising can leave you feeling fatigued, prone to injury and reaching a training plateau. We have all seen those people in the gym that are there every day of the week and don't look any different. Don't fall into that trap.

  • Aim to get one rest day from exercise every week.
  • Always allow 48 hours recovery between resistance training sessions.
  • Hydrate adequately by drinking enough water during and after your workout.
  • Don't train if you have any injuries.
  • Stretch after every workout.

Exercise smart.
