Last week I just got done writing about the benefits of a high intensity workout and how it can save you time in the gym. This week I am going to go over another sprint workout that was shown to help reduce body fat. With summer approaching you will be outside much more, but that doesn't mean you should take a break from exercise, rather, you should switch your workout to one that accommodates your lifestyle. The easiest way to do this in a time efficient manner is through sprint training.
What if I told you you could get the benefits of a 50 minute cardio workout in just ten minutes, would you believe me?
It almost sounds too good to be true. Ten minutes of cardio versus fifty minutes of cardio, the longer duration has to have more benefits, right?
Not so fast, it all depends on the intensity of the exercise. Put simply, if your workout duration is short then you need to push the intensity and if you have a longer workout duration then the intensity needs to be lowered.
The hardest part with coaching is teaching your clients patience, especially in a world where people are conditioned to believe that expect results to happen overnight. And all the blame can’t be put on the client nor the coach. Both the coach and the client have to work together. Humans are the most adaptable species on this earth and our current environment has taught us that results happen instantly. In seconds you can have your questions answered with Google or a date lined up by “swiping right”. Never before has this ever happened. Before the exponential growth of technology, humans understood that things took time because everything around them took time from making a meal to finding a date, well at least for me it took a while. You may not realize it but your everyday activities influence your expectations throughout your other hobbies like working out.
