If exercise is not demanding there is no reason for the body to change. According to a study you will live longer if the exercise you do is more demanding. From the study, A higher effort-based paradigm in physical activity and exercise for public health: making the case for a greater emphasis on resistance training:
“It appears that risk reductions [in morbidities and all-cause mortality] are greater when physical activity and/or exercise is performed at a higher intensity of effort.… A mode customarily performed to a relatively high intensity of effort that we believe has been overlooked is resistance training [strength training]. “
High intensity interval training (HIIT) for strength, the training we do at our Austin Fitness Training facility, will positively affect:
The cumulative improvements facilitate a longer life. HIIT workouts don’t take long, they are usually done once a week, and they are effective in addressing a wide range of health issues. Our workouts combine strength training and interval training; it’s a circuit of exercises working all the major muscle groups. We use MedX equipment. The equipment’s special medical rehab features make it adaptable for people of any age or condition.
Those extremely out of shape need only do a little more than they are used to handling. Do a little more each week, and over time, the change will be transformative. Be stronger, live longer.
