Traditional training Vs. Integrated training.Most people are very familiar with traditional training…you know, go to the gym, lift some weights, maybe hop on the treadmill while watching the over-head TV. That certainly can work and we for sure have come a long way from the 1940’s where we were introduced to those vibrating belt machines women wore around their waist to giggle the “goo” off their belly. While traditional training works it is soooo one dimentional.
The dreaded “C” word, cardiovascular exercise or cardio for short. This is often done as part of some resolution you’ve made around New Years to lose weight. Or punishment for that juicy hamburger you ate last night.Did you really need that extra serving of fries? Come on, you know that answer.
One of the most common excuses people make for not exercising is a lack of time. We’re busier today than ever before thanks to our occupational, our familial and our social obligations. Unfortunately, we’re also more inactive than ever before.
Tools for your resistance training program…the Peripheral Heart Action System. Don’t worry…if it sounds scary, it isn’t! This is simply another way that you can perform your resistance training and it’s a variation of circuit training (Circuit training adds in the “cardio” portion of your workout so you get more bang for your buck!!)
