High intensity group training. The future of elite fitness.

Muscle will only respond in advanced trainers or athletes with resistance. If the muscle is not presented with new challenges resistance, it has no reason to get stronger and build muscle or burn fat. Your body just has no reason to change it's composition or build lean muscle tissue, become faster & more explosive. Sorry those hours you spend on the treadmill, well you have just trained to spend hours on the treadmill and have done very little in changing the way you look & feel. No! Not my opinion but studied and proven science!
With H.I.G.T, my fitness program *high intensity group training* the basis is to stimulate new muscle development by recruiting type II (red)( fast twitch ) muscle fibers. Fibers that will only come into play when the muscle becomes over loaded, the lazy muscle fiber, however the fiber that is responsible for the way ultimetly you look ,feel, play & perform. H.I.G.T does this in two ways. When you have taxed your muscle, lets say with a set of dumbbell presses, most of the work was done with type one fibers (white) slow twitch, little to none of your type two (red) muscle fibers came into play. Again This studied & proven by science. (please visit Dr Paul Check.com)
However by immediately moving from one multi joint exercise, exercises that recruit the most muscle fibers to perform the movement, IE: squats, dead lifts, rows, etc..) to the next, up to four different exercises for different body parts in a set, type one fibers have become overworked, exhausted and force type two fibers to be recruited to come and assist, thus causing maximum damage to muscle fibers, taxing your respatory system & heart as well as burning loads of fat & calories. So with proper nutrition & rest new lean muscle tissue, a stronger heart and a efficient metabolism will ultimetly be achieved.
The second way is with intensity, in my routine I achieve this with little to no rest between sets. The body will respond two ways training this way. First, you will burn loads of calories and force the most important muscle in your body to work overtime. Your heart! Pretty much eliminating the need to do boring types of cardio to strip away fat and shed water. Secondly, with little to no rest you fatigue your type one fibers much faster than traditional one set and rest old school training. Thus conditioning your body to recruit faster, type two fibers. The muscle building lean for life, ripped as a Mother F@#!*! Type two ,fast twitch fiber! Listen you can bitch and wine about how your unhappy with your body. You can go through life being out of shape and lazy. Thats fine with me, but those of you who ask for guidence and hundreds do, then listen to these simple & very basic tips. Its your body, your health.
My H.I.G.T training will keep you lean & muscular for life, not to mention it is challenging and fun to do for woman as well as men, in time of course. At first you will be sending me hate mail.
