High Intensity Training: The fundamental principles of High Intensity Training (HIT) are that exercise should be brief, infrequent, and intense. - Wikipedia
High Intensity Training is a way to stimulate muscle growth using free weights, machines or bodyweight, using maximum effort for a short period. A typical HIT session will last from 20 to 60 minutes, and is done once a week and no more than 3 times per week.
The Simply Stronger Program is done once a week and lasts about 60 minutes. It is done using exercise machines combined with some bodyweight exercises.
Movements are done slowly and with full control and are done using a weight or setting that is specifically tailored to each individual's level of strength. There are no quick or jerking motions that could lead to injury and each exercise is performed only once. The sessions are intense, but brief, and there is always a rest in between each set that allows the body the needed time to be ready to do the next exercise.
Typically between 5 and 10 exercises are done in a session, in order to cover all of the main muscle groups and all of the main movements and motions we use (pulling, pushing, walking, bending etc.)
Examples of some of the exercises: Squats (or Leg Press) - Row - Chest Press - Shoulder Press
Although intense, most people who exercise this way feel great during and after the sessions. A great sense of accomplishment and motivation is felt when the increases in strength are felt in everyday life and the amount of weight lifted increases each week.
How you can do this. All it takes is a little time. Sixty minutes to be exact.
That's how much time you need, once a week, to get results doing this program.
There's no need to do more. However, many people who start the program enjoy it so much that they ask to do it more often, and so we do it twice a week.
One of the hardest things to explain to people who are new to exercising the way you would in the Simply Stronger Program is that you must take rest days. At least 2 days rest in between sessions. At least. This is why you can do it once a week and get stronger each and every time you do the program.
But when everyone sees the results right there on paper, there's no denying they are getting stronger. And they feel it too!
There also don’t need to be set days when you do the program. If one week, Monday works best for you, but the following week you are only available on Wednesday. No problem. Like anything of course, the more you put in, the more you get out, and the technicalities of making the program the most efficient for your schedule, your body type, your goals etc. can all be worked out during the initial sessions.
If all you're looking to do is get a little stronger so that your daily activities become easier, your body feels a little younger, and you feel like you can do an activity without tiring out, then all you need is a weekly session of Simply Stronger.
