Sprinting forms of exercise are catching on with the middle-aged, and there's solid reasons why.
Millions practice the same New Year’s ritual of making the infamous resolution to exercise. And most realize that New Year’s good intentions typically don’t last more than a couple of weeks.
Recent research has shown us that there is a more effective form of exercise for adults, especially middle-age adults and when people see results the probability goes up that they’ll stick with their resolution to exercise.
What’s the most effective form of exercise I'm talking about? It’s not your grandmother’s walk around the block. It’s anaerobic exercise--a step-up from the steady-pace cardio you’ve been hearing about for years. It doesn’t take as long, but it’s more intense.
Researchers show we can unleash exercise-induced growth hormone release with 10 to 30 seconds of higher intensities of exercise. The most powerful body-fat-cutting, muscle-toning, anti-aging substance known in science, growth hormone, is produced by the body with this type of exercise.
Running, cycling, swimming, cross country skiing, and power walking can be made to be anaerobic if the intensity is raised to a level where it gets you good-and-winded. I recommend eight repetitions of some type of sprinting exercise lasting 10 to 30 seconds with a 1½ minute rest in-between.
If your favorite form of exercise is capable of getting you winded quickly, then it is “anaerobic” and capable of reaching the growth hormone release benchmarks cited in the research.
A Cure for the Middle Age Spread?
The middle-age spread has an official name, “somatopause.” And it’s directly related to the way the body produces growth hormone. The middle-age somatopause is signified by energy decline, weight-gain (around the middle, and hips), loss of muscle, and wrinkled skin after age 30.
Exercising to release growth hormone is the natural way to beat the middle-age spread. However a physician clearance is a must and a progressive build-up of high-intensity exercise is necessary to prevent injury. Anaerobic exercise is the most beneficial form of exercise, but also the most dangerous.
Will the next fitness fad be the sprinting types of exercise? The trend is catching on fast, except “Ready Set Go Fitness Workout isn’t a fad because once people try it, they feel it, and know this program is the real deal!”
"Ready, Set, Go Synergy Fitness"
Human Growth Hormone is also known as the "youth hormone" along with testosterone. Unfortunately, the body's natural production of it decreases sharply as we approach middle age. Increased HGH lessens that body fat around the middle which increases with age regardless of how many crunches one does.
Phil Campbell has done extensive research and written about exercise techniques, diet and supplementation that raises your body's natural levels of HGH.
Ready Set Go! Synergy Fitness is a book for all middle-aged adults that want to tap into their body's natural production of HGH to lose weight, gain muscle mass and feel great. Based on scientific research into HGH production naturally in the body.
