Increased Strength

For the individual who is not interested in becoming a weightlifter, bodybuilder or professional athlete many studies support that a high intensity training session done once per week is sufficient to stimulate muscular strength gains; and once a plateau of strength is reached, weekly training will maintain muscle mass, strength and conditioning.1

The intensity of each training session must be sufficient to stimulate the body to respond by getting stronger, commonly known as the minimum effective dose or MED. Though more time, repetitions, and volume of training will produce even greater stimulus and in turn greater tissue response, overtraining and reaching a point of diminishing returns occurs rapidly for most individuals. The primary objective of high intensity short duration training is to produce increased strength of muscle, tendon and bone, with minimal risk, in as little time as possible, to allow time for recuperation, as well as other activities of work and play.
