It's that time of week again – the day when I give you a sneak peek at practical, quick and dirty fitness tips from this week's Get-Fit Guy article.
See, each week, over at the Quick & Dirty Tips Network, I produce a free, easy-to-read article, accompanied by a short 5-10 minute audio version of that article. Everything there is focused on the latest fitness research, exercise news, and quick and highly practical muscle gain, fat loss and physical performance tips. It’s called “The Get-Fit Guy’s Quick & Dirty Tips To Slim Down & Shape Up”.
Here's your sneak peek from this week's article,“Does A 20-Minute-Long Once-A-Week Workout Really Work?”.
“…In an Inc. Magazine article, the author describes her growing frustration over being strapped to a chair all day at the office unable to adequately exercises, and then her amazement upon speaking to her 50-something year old fit hair stylist who goes to a place where she's strapped into special exercise machines, wears her regular clothes, doesn't break a sweat, and performs a full-body workout in 20 minutes.
She then goes on to describe something called “high-intensity, slow-motion strength training”, in which you would do something like, say, a machine leg press, but you’d only do one single set, and you would take a very long, drawn out, all-the-muscles-in-my-body-burning time to perform that set (e.g. nine reps over three minutes), You’d then hit every other major muscle group, from upper body to core, with just one single, hard, teeth-gritting super slow set and…voila. Within 20 minutes, you’re done.”
