One of the best ways to obtain true cardiovascular fitness, burn that stubborn visceral fat and improve your dynamic movements is via interval training.
Align this with your filtered structured and vitalised water program and a nutrient dense food with ZERO man made additives and processed sugars and you are on the road to awesomeness.
Food (energy) in its various forms is your medicine, so be sure to start embracing real food, sunlight and structured water as these will keep you alive for longer.
Interval training is essentially a short and sharp high intensity program focusing on an increased heart rate, in bursts, of over 85% max heart rate with limited and times rest periods.
Example: 30 seconds on / 10 seconds off.
This heart rate can be determined by simple maths of 220 minus your age as a basic guide however this will also have some variables based on the individual, your current fitness level, medical conditions, and general movement capacity.
Example: 220 – 43 years of age = 177 Max Heart Rate
85% of 177 = 150 approx.
It is a guide that works and the goal is to establish better recovery rates over time.
Over time I will start to do some videos to explain some more complex skills so you can learn the names and terminology.
If in doubt we have Google to help us out.
Below is a simple workout anyone can do at home however if you have not trained in a while I suggest taking it slow and easy to build up some confidence and conditioning to avoid DOMS (Delayed Onset Muscle Soreness) which is very normal in the first 3 to 4 sessions after a break from movement or training. Take pressure off yourself and take your time.
Consistency and scaled intensity is the key here.
