Why do we recommend “High Intensity, Low Velocity or Hi-Lo Strength Training?"


 It is Effective:   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!!

 It is Safe:   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.     

It is Timewise: The 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 takes. The mantra in the High Intensity Strength Training arena is: "We always look for the least amount of exercise that stimulates the desired results." 

It Combats “Sarcopenia”:  Quite possibly 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!   

Your 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.
