Sadly, this isn’t true.
Simply doing things hard, fast, or more does NOT mean you’re going to get the training effect that you’re hoping for.
If you want to look, feel, and perform your best?
And you want to be able to sustain it into your 30’s, 40’s, 50’s, 60’s and beyond without spending hours a day in the gym?
Pay close attention…
High Intensity Fitness inferior training is a watered-down version of the REAL “constantly varied functional movements performed at high intensity” training method.
Now, don’t get me wrong, the concept behind High Intensity Fitness is solid…
Combining the best of strength training & conditioning into one program.
And I’ll let you in on a deep dark secret – I gave High Intensity Fitness a shot myself when I was introduced to it by a buddy of mine.
What attracted me to it is the competitiveness. Now, I was a college athlete so I’ll admit that part got my juices flowing. And it definitely can be fun.
However, based on my experience and education in exercise science, I immediately knew that this simply was NOT the best of both worlds, it certainly wasn’t the best strength training out there for sure. I’ll prove this in a minute.
So, I realized that all these High Intensity Fitness Athletes who had a cult-like following and allegiance to this thing were priming themselves for less than stellar long-term results, burnout, and even serious injury. It actually led me to the best decision of my life – more on that later.
For now, it’s important that you know and understand the most common programming mistakes you’ll find in almost every training program out there (but especially if you like High Intensity Fitness type training)… so you avoid them at all costs.
