What is 20 Minute Fitness?
20 Minute Fitness is a high intensity, low-force exercise strengthening protocol (method).
It is a method that best fits the definition of complete exercise.
It is beneficial for rehabilitation, bodybuilding, weight loss, and general exercise.
20 Minute Fitness total-body workouts are once or twice a week, depending on the patient/client's skill level.
The customer's program is, first and foremost, focused on results to be achieved and the value they impart.
20 Minute Fitness Is:
The 20 Minute Fitness Exercise Protocol is an efficient and effective workout in which general exercisers give their maximum effort. The cornerstone of 20 Minute Fitness is an approximate 20-second cycle of each repetition from the beginning to the start of the next repetition. The weight is lifted in 10 seconds and lowered in 10 seconds coupled with a smooth turnaround technique at either end. Clients complete approximately two to three minutes on the equipment until they reach momentary muscle failure. At that moment, the 20 Minute Fitness certified instructor will encourage one last attempt. It is that last effort that successfully stimulates muscles to improve. This method truly embodies the definition of complete exercise by properly and safely building muscle and increasing the resting metabolism, allowing the body to burn more calories even while at rest.
20 Minute Fitness addresses three key elements for a complete, results-driven workout. Working maximum fibers in high-intensity, low-force exercises encourages maximum muscular strength. The program demands the application of resistance through a full range of possible movement, with adequate stretching to enhance and maintain flexibility. 20 Minute Fitness requires greater demands on the body's transport system, thus promoting increased cardiovascular efficiency. More than any other program in the industry, 20 Minute Fitness is unsurpassed in directly and safely addressing the three components of physical conditioning.
The Biology Between the ages of 20 and 50 the average individual loses approximately 15 pounds of muscle and gains over 30 pounds of fat as a result of the decrease in metabolism associated with muscle loss. In addition to improved strength and endurance, regaining or building muscle tissue also increases metabolism, and improves body shape, bone density, cardiovascular efficiency, and joint stability.
20 Minute Fitness strength training can quickly and safely stimulate the body to produce additional muscle tissue and improvements in cardiovascular and other support systems. It is important to note that 20 Minute Fitness is the stimulus, and the physical improvements are produced by the body as a response to that stimulus.
The human body is an economical organism, which resists change unless stimulated by a demand exceeding its current ability. Intense exercise quickly fatigues the working muscles, and therefore must be brief. As intensity increases, so does the stimulus, and the larger the stimulus, the greater and longer lasting the results. These results are biologically expensive, and most of all, time consuming. 20 Minute Fitness provides the safest, most productive form of intense exercise, and one or two properly spaced sessions each week allow time for the body to produce optimum results.
