Taylors Gym Personal Training

New research published in Medicine & Science in Sports & Exercise shows that even if you do no actual “cardio,” pumping iron will strengthen your most important muscle, your heart, and protect you from having a cardiovascular event like a heart attack or stroke.

After crunching the data, the researchers found that even a little bit of strength training went a long way for preventing heart disease. They found that as little as one session a week, or less than an hour of pumping iron, cut the participants’ risks of heart disease and dying from a cardiovascular event by 40 to 70 percent, even if they didn’t get the recommended amount of aerobic exercise every week.

Strength training was also linked to a lower body mass index (BMI), which is also associated with better heart health.

Join the Pivotal Fitness Taylors gym on Thursdays at 9:30 AM for a High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) class.

The Science Behind Interval Training:

HIIT taxes and maximizes both aerobic and anaerobic fitness while cardio addresses aerobic only.

  • Aerobic respiration requires O2 to generate energy.
  • Anaerobic respiration does not require O2 to generate energy.

HIIT affects muscle tissue at a cellular level, actually changing mitochondrial activity in the muscles themselves by alternating short periods of intense anaerobic exercise with less intense recovery periods. Studies show that 27 minutes of HIIT 3x/week produces the same anaerobic and aerobic improvement as 60 minutes of cardio 5x/week. These short, intense workouts provide improved athletic capacity and condition as well as improved glucose metabolism.

In addition to increased fat burning and more muscle preserved, HIIT stimulates production of your human growth hormone (HGH) by up to 450 percent during the 24 hours after you finish your workout. This is great news since HGH is not only responsible for increased caloric burn but also slows down the aging process, making you younger both inside and out!

Join us this Thursday at our Pivotal Fitness Taylors gym at 9:30 AM and start experiencing the effects of high intensity interval training for yourself!
