High intensity interval training vs. Low intensity steady state cardio ??♂️??♀️
During the sessions at BMB, our clients perform exercises that utilize their entire body at an individual intensity that is designed to stimulate their metabolism. After they complete this type of workout, calories (energy) are needed to return their body to a resting state and adapt it to the exercise they just performed. This process is known as EPOC (Excess Post-exercise Oxygen Consumption). Once a state of EPOC is achieved, their body will continue to burn more calories after their session as it tries to recover from the activity just performed. This includes hormone balancing, replenishment of fuel stores, cellular repair, fueling the body’s increase in metabolism due to the increase in body temperature and many more bodily processes.
This means that if you exercise at the right intensity (and we make sure of this by monitoring your heart rate), you have the potential to keep burning calories up to 48 hours after your workout. With the MYZONE system we will be making sure that you will, individually, be exercising at the ideal intensity which will allow you to potentially burn just as many calories whilst recovering as you did working out!
Interval style cardio activity combined with fatigue-level strength training will give you an amazing workout that is always challenging and fun and has been proven to be the fastest and most effective way to achieving weight loss and your health and fitness results
But remember, to make that EPOC happen, you have to make sure you are flat out working your tail off and absolutely smashed by the end of your session!
