High Intensity Strength Training provides the stimulation
needed to cause the muscles to get stronger and often
bigger. We will gradually increase the amount of weight in
the sessions to insure that you continue to make progress.
The only thing muscles really respond to is Intensity, but
you knew that!! We are going to treat exercise as a
drug, not too much and not too little!!
High Intensity Strength training
can be very safe when performed with proper form and low velocity means less
trauma to the joints, ligaments and tendons.
most common reason people do not exercise, besides the fact
that most “exercise” does not produce the results we want,
is lack of time.When
you are doing proper exercise, it is amazing how little time
it takes to get results.Two 20-25 minute workouts a week is really all it

Intensity Strength Training arena is: "We always look for
the least amount of exercise that stimulates the desired
Combats “Sarcopenia”:Quitepossibly the most significant silent epidemic facing
our aging population is “Sarcopenia’ or the age related
loss of muscle mass.As
we lose muscle we gradually lose our ability to perform what
are termed “Activities of Daily Living”.This leads to various levels of functional disability.In addition, loss of muscle lowers our Basal Metabolic
Rate and if we don’t change our diet we gradually gain fat!!For anti-aging purposes, muscle mass maintenance and
strength are critical!
Metabolism Will Improve: Increasing
your strength and muscle mass and losing fat will often
improve your lipid profile, glucose tolerance, bone density,
Basal Metabolic Rate and combined with our Modified Zone/Paleo Diet, you
may reduce your risk of chronic diseases.

and Why Genetics Limit Us"
This seminar explains the Known genetic factors which limit
our strength, size and body habitus. It explains why
most of us, no matter how hard we try, will ever grace the
cover of a Muscle Magazine.Answers the question "Are you White or Dark
Meat" and everything you ever wanted to know about muscle
ins and outs of ATP production and why it is so important to

response to intense strength training.
