The research has been there — coming in by dribs and drabs — for quite a while: Even though the force output from fast-twitch fibers is much greater than the force output from slow-twitch fibers, what you will observe on a molecular basis is that the twitch velocity of fast-twitch fibers is actually slower than it is with slow-twitch fibers. I’m certainly lucky scjence be young, but I’d be happy to compensate for aging by working a bit harder and cleaning up my diet.

In other worlds, this is a book for most people, especially older people. If you are going to follow their program, use nautilus equipment. I found it refreshing for someone with a fitness plan to actually explain to me how things work and why their routine works best rather than just going off of the “conventional wisdom”.

All of this is really outlined in the chapter fat loss and is an interesting read. Our rule of thumb for rep cadence is that whatever cadence you can employ that will allow you to move as slowly as possible without it turning into a stuttering, stop-and-start scenario is the right one for you.

Research shows that seven minutes of moderate-to-high intensity aerobic effort once a week is enough to keep the cardiovascular system working well. If you are able to recruit, fatigue, and weaken muscle fibers within a defined time frame, then you are going to recruit all of the different muscle fiber types aggressively and therefore get the most mechanical hy metabolic effect for producing an adaptation.

Is 15 minutes of training a week enough to achieve beneficial performance and aesthetic results? Well written and thoroughly researched. I’ll get my head into the book and then see how I mcyuff piece this all together then. This is still THE book for information about how to exercise. Aug 04, Kristian Norling rated it it was amazing.
