Quality Workout Plan

Story at-a-glance -

  • The effectiveness of your fitness program isn’t measured by how long you exercise. It’s measured by the quality of your exercise
  • In a new study, people who engaged in a multi-dimensional exercise routine lost more weight and fat mass, and built more lean muscle, than those who did only resistance training or were sedentary
  • High-endurance training, such as running for an hour at a time, puts extraordinary stress on your heart that may actually cause health damage
  • High-intensity interval training (which requires but a fraction of the time compared to conventional cardio) has been shown to be FAR more efficient and effective, compared to longer, slower cardio workouts
  • After high-intensity exercise, adequate recovery time is necessary to ensure your body has time to repair and recuperate between sessions
