There are tons of health and fitness “must do’s” that we’ve been told over and over again that we need to live by if we want to be healthy and fit. If you play by the popular rules, you probably think that you must:
- Work out at LEAST 3-5 times a week
- Do plenty of cardio to burn calories
- Lift heavy weights if you are a man, and lighter weights to “tone” if you are a woman
- Eat a perfectly “clean” diet
But none of these things will actually give you the body you want. You’ll simply spend much of your precious time, and probably money, devoting yourself to a “healthy lifestyle” that doesn’t actually do much to help you achieve your fitness goals.
If you’ve been here before, you know how frustrating it can be. You do everything the “right way,” yet you still are not happy with your level of fitness or the way your body looks. When this happens, you can go one of two ways: amp up the intensity of your workouts so you’re spending even more time in the gym, or give up on your fitness goals altogether out of pure frustration.
But, before you go to one of these extremes, there’s something you should know. It’s not about how much time you spend in the gym, or burning a certain number of calories during cardio. It’s about spending your time in the gym efficiently and challenging your muscles during every workout. You don’t need to work out more, but you need to work out smarter. What if you could get stronger, build muscle mass and improve your body composition, and see changes in your body, by spending less than an hour in the gym per week?
The Smart Workout
These are just some of the benefits of working out at QuickHIT Fitness Labs. It’s all possible thanks to our high-intensity workouts. A workout at QuickHIT Fitness Labs works your muscles to the point of failure, which you are unlikely to do when you are working out at a gym alone, and is essentially impossible during low intensity, steady state cardio.
The problem with those workouts is that they do not work your muscles hard enough to cause them to form “microtears.” Your body actually gets stronger during the process of repairing these tiny tears, not during the workouts themselves. So, if your workouts don’t challenge you enough to cause these mini tears in the muscle, you will not get stronger.
Are QuickHIT Workouts Effective?
How do you know that you’ll work your muscles this hard during every workout with QuickHIT Fitness Labs? Our high-intensity workouts follow a super slow style of training, which takes the momentum factor out of the exercise. This means that your muscles have to do more work than in a traditional workout because there is no momentum to give your body a boost. And, because you’re working harder and more efficiently, you can spend less time in the gym. In less than 40 minutes per week, you can get a great workout that will change your body composition. Plus, moving slowly during your workouts eliminates impact and reduces the risk of injury.
And, the benefits of QuickHIT workouts extend beyond the gym. As you start to increase your muscle mass, your basal metabolic rate (the calories you burn while at rest) will go up. That’s because muscle tissue burns more calories than fat tissue. So when you work out with us, you’ll start burning more calories all day- even in your sleep.
Don’t worry about missing out on cardiovascular benefits, either. During a high-intensity strength training workout, your muscles will need plenty of oxygen to fuel them through. Your heart and lungs will be working very hard to deliver this much-needed oxygen to your muscles. You’ll get your cardio in without having to step foot on the treadmill.
