High-Intensity Training System
Muscle atrophy (muscle shrinkage) and osteoporosis (bone loss) are the result of muscle and bone not being subjected to adequate stress. In the absence of stress, the body breaks down these tissues instead of building them. Weight training stimulates the body to do the opposite, and instead of breaking down the body tissues; the body will build the tissues stronger to allow a more efficient response to those stresses placed upon it. Therefore, an important aspect of high-intensity training is to properly overload the muscles, thereby stimulating the body to increase the size of the muscle making it stronger, larger and more efficient. High-intensity training principles dictate that a person moves through the workout in a progressive and intense manner.
