Stop The Insanity

stop-the-insanity-images“Every day we see more extreme “fitness programs” advertised with high-intensity workouts and volumes of work that even my elite athletes would never hold up to. And every day, we see the injuries in the clinic that define these workouts as ill-designed, dangerous, and unsustainable. What most recreational athletes and fitness buffs don’t realize is that elite athletes spend more than half of their time in the gym on injury prevention, and the rest of the time on performance enhancement. Safe and effective stretching and injury prevention workouts might not be spectacular to watch, but they allow athletes to work harder at their sport and in the gym on performance enhancement.” Robert Forster – Physical Therapist to 42 Olympic Medalists, NBA and Grand Slam Champions and Member of the Governor’s Council on Physical Fitness.

Everyone knows how to work hard — it’s those who work equally hard on stretching, recovery, and injury prevention who reach their highest genetic potential in sport and in health.

24 Fit Workout

The basic premise of all well designed exercise programs is the progressive overload principle. Fitness must be “pushed” from below, i.e. starting slow and progressing to harder workouts slowly. The periodisation model used by 24Fit builds your fitness up with a stair step series of methodical, progressive challenges and recoveries that strengthen your body and keep brain and brawn fresh.

There are 3 phases each of 8 weeks:

Phase 1 – Stability.
Phase 2 – Strength.
Phase 3 – Power.

Phase 1 is about establishing stability throughout every part of your body. Thats Spine and Pelvic Stabilization, Shoulder Stabilization and Total Body Integration. By the time you’ve completed Phase 1, you’ll not only have improved posture and joint health, but your body will also be properly prepared for the strength and power workouts to come in Phases 2 and 3.

Contrast that with some high intensive workouts creating a plethora of overuse and traumatic injuries and other ill designed training programs that not even Olympians would hold up under the stress of these workouts.

Get ready! Armed with a bulletproof fitness program and solid science based nutrition you’ll get great results..

Fitness System – 24Fit Launches In the UK

Useful tips from a leading fitness professional Tom Holland:

“Don’t slight your strength-training regimen. Many people complain that, as they age, they eat and exercise the same amount but still gain weight. One of the main causes of this is loss of muscle mass. The more muscle mass you have, the more calories you burn. Strength training preserves and even increases muscle mass, keeping metabolism at a high level”

“Because women in general will end up doing less cardio than men with this formula, it’s wise for them to spend more time doing strength training . Genetically, women have less muscle than men, and as a woman ages, the preservation of lean muscle becomes vital”

Weight Plateau

Hit a weight plateau? Step up your strength training. It builds muscle & increases your metabolic rate. Have you had your shake after you’re workout?! “Important! Don’t skip your protein shake after you exercise and think that you’ll save calories! A protein shake after training accelerates lean muscle growth, which in turn revs your metabolism and burns more fat.

24Fit Workout Reviews

Here is a selection of reviews for the new 24Fit workout program

“I am near the end of week two. Today is activity day- I will mow the lawn with a ‘green’ mower (all human powered). Sunday is a rest day. My body can tell that I have worked all those small so important muscles!! I feel like my legs and abs have really gotten stronger– I can go from sitting down to standing with one leg — no problem. I am looking forward to the next 22 weeks. I will complete the program the first week of October!! ”

Week 3 of phase 3. Love it! Challenging, motivating, and straight up POWER. The first 2 phases are making phase 3 worth every minute! I know I am strong and I know my weaknesses. Work hard and press on!!! Melissa ”

I really like way the rotation is structured: 30 minute workouts are perfect for my weekday schedule, and a 5 day per week structure is also ideal, because I like to do my own thing on the weekends (I always do anyway, but I love that it’s built into the “official” rotation schedule).”
