REDUCE BODY FAT & INCREASE MUSCLE MASS
Benefits of Strength Endurance Training:
> Increases metabolic demand (caloric expenditure) to induce cellular changes in muscle to aid in weight loss, increase lean muscle mass/size and strength
> Increases bone mineral density
> Promotes increased stabilization endurance, hypertrophy (building muscle mass), and strength
> Increasees the ability of the core musculature to stabilize the pelvis and spine under heavier loads, through more complete ranges of motion
> Enhances joint stabilization by increasing the load-bearing capabilities of muscles, tendons, ligaments, and joints
> Improves stabilization endurance and increases prime mover strength to improve overall work capacity
Many people desire to lose weight, but many struggle with the process. This is because their focus is misguided with too much emphasis on fad dieting and what the scale reads as a measure of success instead of making healthy, realistic lifestyle changes and adjusting one's body composition.
To achieve and maintain weight loss requires proper nutrition, the right caloric intake, and the most effective resistance and cardiorespiratory training techniques that can reduce body fat and increase muscle mass. This is important for long-term success because muscle is highly metabolically active and can help the body burn calories and excess body fat at a much faster rate, even at rest.
Strength Endurance Training is considered phase 2 of resistance training and focuses on the main adaptation of strength. It is designed to maintain stability while increasing the amount of stress placed on the body for increased strength and muscle mass. This program also includes Cardiorespiratory Endurance and High-Intensity Interval Training (HIIT) to help activate the excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC) effect which can aid in more rapid fat loss.
Based on individual goals and results from the postural, movement and fitness assessments, this phase of training may be recommended. Strength Endurance training typically requires a commitment of 2-4 days per week for 4-6 weeks.
