Recovery. Today was about recovery. Repeated work rest intervals. Turn the taps on to explode out the gates at full tilt. Then stop on a dime. Breathing. Resting. Recharging. Boom. Back into it again until that buzzer sounds.
We’re training the body to tap into its energy reserves, deplete them and then recharge them at an ever increasing rate. Through that we’re creating an increasingly efficient machine that can complete more work in less time. More efficient energy usage in the body leads to metabolic conditioning. Increased metabolic response is one of the ket contributors to burning higher levels of energy in the body throughout the day.
In very plain terms it’s about training the body to use up the excess energy (fat and stored sugars) more readily while challenging the muscles to ever higher levels of performance (inspiring strength & muscle growth).
An increase in lean mass (muscle) and an ever increasing rate of stored energy burn (body fat for the most part) takes us right to that lean, fast, fit place so many of us are striving to achieve.
Awesome work guys.
