Frequently Asked Questions
What is “Slow” Strength Training?
“Slow” strength training is a science-backed technique of lifting and lowering weights, usually in slow 10-second intervals. You continuously lift the weight for 10 seconds and lower the weight for 10-seconds until your body reaches temporary muscular failure. At this point you’re unable to lift the weights or maintain proper form.
What is High Intensity Training?
In a word, High-Intensity Training (HIT) means results! It also means safety and efficiency by helping your muscles grow stronger.
Our slow-motion HIT method focuses on working one muscle group at a time using slow, controlled repetitions until you reach the point of momentary muscle failure.
By pushing your muscles to their limit, HIT stimulates muscle growth, increases muscle strength, and stimulates metabolic benefits that cannot be achieved through a steady state of activity or conventional exercise.
During HIT, the body releases hormones (epinephrine and norepinephrine) to create stronger, larger muscles. While performing, for example, a leg exercise, your entire body is benefitting from the release of these hormones.
Because our HIT method is a slow, controlled workout, it accomplishes multiple benefits without damaging side effects such as excessive joint stress, or other injuries that are commonly associated with conventional exercise.
Will I really get results training only once a week?
Yes! Once a week is all you need to get stronger when your workout involves high-intensity training that is designed to build stronger muscles.
Arthur Jones, the father of High Intensity Training (HIT), once said, “There is no such thing as a long, hard work out” because the harder the workout, the shorter the workout lasts.
Once intensely stimulated, it is best to rest those muscles for a minimum of 4-5 days and up to two weeks. This gives your body a chance to adapt metabolically and synthesize stronger muscles.
Is this workout safe for out of shape, older adults?
The fast answer is yes! In many cases it should be the only way older adults engage in high intensity exercise. That is because our super slow lifting speeds, watchful eyes, and special equipment won’t exacerbate any pre-existing injuries.
Also, the older we get, the faster we lose muscle, which leads to falls, injuries, digestive disruptions, joint problems, and loss of bone density. The key to preventing all these issues is engaging in a safe, intense strength-training program.
Is it safe to do HIT with an old injury?
There is no a one-size-fits-all answer. The type, severity and time-frame of an injury all play a part in how to best develop a plan. But typically, the answer is yes!
HIT is not only safe it is often beneficial. In HIT, the slower pace ensures less force, force is arguably the biggest cause of weightlifting injury.
Additionally, HIT machines are retrofitted with cams that are unique to each machine to ensure weight is heaviest where the muscles are strongest and lightest where the muscles are weakest. Also, HIT machines are adjustable so we customize equipment to safely accommodate your range of motion.
What are the factors for success in HIT?
- Focus – Maintaining an attentive focus will help you work through the physical discomfort and complete perfect weightlifting repetitions.
- Calm – Remaining calm helps you release the mental anxiety that sometimes occurs during extreme exertion.
- Consistency – This is less about lifting as much weight as you can for as many repetitions as you can; rather, it’s about perfecting your form, a steady, slow speed, and proper diaphragmatic breathing.
- Logical Thinking – It’s helpful to understand the science and results which support the efficacy of HIT.
- Determination – Finally, we encourage you to maintain the determination of a champion athlete! This means staying committed to your appointments, working as hard as you can during your workout and focusing on a healthy diet and lifestyle outside of the studio.
Finally, it’s about making great health and ideal fitness a routine part of your life!
