Personally a continual issue with HIIT (High-Intensity Interval Training) together with HIST (High-Intensity Strength Straining) within Dr. Doug McGuff conception! McGuff theory is, quickly put of extremely slow HIST and really limit the frequency. Basically to once a week!
Also notice that with the new Millenials:
Smart muscle conscious boys amazingly are mostly also aware! My one of two athletic, (dodging and fast Fly Half muscled type), grandkid Lachlan, fully grasps it!
If he goes to the gym with friends, say five days a week, over that period they use and work on different muscle groups!
This results in the exhaustion of varying sets of muscles over this time, and effectively the exhaustion of one complete muscle body group in a week!
The weights are classic style but because there are several sets it ends at an exhaustive point!
What accomplish by an extremely slow method of movement is exhausting the six ‘major direction muscle movements’. Essentially forward and back, up and down, and with the legs pushing the large muscles. Some extra fine-tuning of using other available gym gear to also push outwards and inwards with the legs!
Mercola has caught on big time with the concept of the nitric oxide dump.
This is almost an end resulting element of this process.
An extreme end and repetition ensure the presence of nitric oxide and its genetic expressions throughout the day, but two hour time interludes!
This is a very far cry from the twenty minutes on an elliptical in his gym with a trainer, who incidentally to my horror has very visible pot gut!
His ongoing monologue apparently deaf to his ears!
It could have been that instinctive ultimate motivation for Mercola to other greener pastures!
In event gyms not available, for instance when travelling! This just an excellent way for full gym substitution with beneficial outcomes.
Always maintain people in gyms sitting and peddling on bikes for some forty-five minutes or even more, are mistaken! Often culprits their trainers! It does not matter what machine, they are wasting their valuable time!
Do not think our forefathers into jogging! Even today’s Kalahari hunters at extreme exhaustion to track that animal!
If no previous cardio, and then suddenly on an elliptical trainer for 45 minutes…perhaps there’s a short term benefit. But that soon passes!
Twice a week still adopt Mercola old HIIT but for half original time. Just over ten minutes!
With two days of separation, and three days from HIST.
BUT to follow McGuff: still remains a somewhat risk of disruption of that HIST incredible benefit. but think it is a good compromise!
Stealthy HIIT & HIST Seriously Powerful
