Ahhh...a mountain-climber like no other. Reactive variability has a metabolic cost too. Great work @paul_edmondson77 🙌

This is Alex! - My client and a PT herself, today we had minimal time and high intensity was the “wish” for the day!....Part of a 6 exercise (this being 1 of the 6) circuit, 1 minute per exercise with a 15-second transition (recovery) between each set/circuit. What a way to hit 15 minutes of High-Intensity-Steady-State training (that’s right the majority of the industry would consider this to be HIIT). This belief is not technically correct because the minimal recover period (15secs) does NOT allow the body to get ‘down’ to Aerobic Metabolism between each exercise- therefor always above Lactate threshold - so it’s HISS not HIIT!!!
Benefits are HGH, IGF1 and Testosterone production, raised EPOC (afterburn) levels and improved Glucose metabolism. The side effects though (long-term) can be Arterial stiffness due to Oxidative stress - so variability of training is ESSENTIAL in exercise prescription as EVERYTHING that has a benefit unfortunately also has a CONSEQUENCE!! Vary your exercise, modalities, planes of motions, bodyweight vs load training , tempo (slow and quick), energy systems to create the best in human potential for those we serve! PT life and client health! Thanks to the excellent #iom #instituteofmotion for helping this become more mainstream knowledge 👊 @function.first
