INTENSITY Vs VOLUME
By: Heath Maplestone

INTENSITY VS VOLUME:


Intensity is the most important ingredient in gaining fitness, strength & burning body fat.


Your body adapts quickly to change and needs constant stimilus to ensure you keep achieving results.  For example, if your program includes push ups and you complete two sets of 12 repetitions every session you will actually be going backwards.  By increasing the difficulty of the exercise e.g. from knees to toes, or from toes to feet up on bench, you create the stimilus necessary to produce a response from your muscles. 


Often people fall into the trap of thinking that by just completing the same program for 3 months straight will achieve significant results but unfortuntely our body is too finely tuned for that. 


Try increasing the intensity of your program every week or two weeks and notice the improvements.


If your not training harder than your last session then you won’t achieve significant results.
