HOW MUCH AND HOW OFTEN WE DO THINGS IS IMPORTANT
Exercise style, type of the movement, the type of the food we eat or how we prepare it, time in the certain posture, the way how we recover, where fo you stare (or not) or/and where and how long we hold a suitcase. All these (and whatever you are thinking off) require the right dosage and diverse approach
TO BE HEALTHY WE NEED TO CREATE RESILIENCY AND TO CREATE RESILIENCY WE NEED VARIABILITY
For me, from the physical perspective every day is a SISS and SIIT (sub-maximal intensity/interval). However HIGH INTENSITY both steady and interval (HISS and HIIT) are important too. For the anabolic hormone production (growth hormone and testosterone - because who likes women boobs on men), I like to burn fat post session or increase VO2 Max, to prevent Sarcopenia and Dynapenia.
I schedule these types of metabolic conditioning maximum of 2-3 times a week for 4-30 minutes each session.
However it’s important that we don’t over do it as too much of high intensity can lead to arterial stiffness due to oxidative stress (HISS) or prioritising a certain cell signalling pathway (mTOR). Due to interval component of HIIT this type is usually longer in length then HISS.
Today, I designed myself 4Q MetCon (Metabolic Conditioning) using our 4Q NM (Neuro-Mechanical) but for a change I switched the scenarios. HISS for LLT and longer whereas for HIIT I used LMT and made it shorter however the intensity of LMT drills where very high.
