The optimal training dose, says McGuff, is The Big 5, a series of exercises performed one after the other with minimal rest, for just 1 set each. Music to the ears of any gym-goer. Training tip 2: Avoid the desire to blast the plate at the start, and instead focus on a slow, even, fluid movement of seconds. Instead, immediately begin the slow and steady, return to the starting position. Shaking all over: The aim of this workout is catabolism, or muscle breakdown — with muscle growth taking place during the recovery days and weeks. The negative contraction of each exercise, when done slowly, with control, is the main cause of the damage.

McGuff sheds light on the aerobic benefits of resistance training and how to get a complete workout in 20 minutes once a week. You cannot go into this process with an idea of someone that you admire. Or a look that you would like to have or a capability that someone else has that you want to try to emulate or reproduce. That will fail every time. Doug McGuff?

High-intensity training HIT is a form of strength training popularized in the s by Arthur Jones, the founder of Nautilus. The training focuses on performing quality weight training repetitions to the point of momentary muscular failure. The training takes into account the number of repetitions, the amount of weight, and the amount of time the muscle is exposed to tension in order to maximize the amount of muscle fiber recruitment.

Body By Science
Body by Science goes into great detail on the dose-response relationship of exercise and proves just how little high intensity exercise is actually required for best results — far less than many people believe — also backed up by scientific research and the results of a combined 30 years of supervising and tracking the progress of thousands of trainees through tens of thousands of workouts. Body by Science also explains the numerous genetic factors determining individual muscular potential and response to exercise, and how this information can be used to fine tune your workouts to get the best results possible. The chapter on genetics also contains an interesting discussion of epigenetics, how high intensity strength training influences the expression of your genes. Chapter 9, The Science of Fat Loss, destroys numerous myths while explaining how training, diet and other factors combined to produce discriminated fat loss. Chapters 10 and 11 address the training requirements of athletes and seniors and how the concepts and principles explained in the book should be adapted for those populations, including specific routines for football, hockey, baseball and golf.
