Does more exercise equal more results? Not always and many times it can be dangerous and result in injury. Many of us see extremely fit people and the first thing that comes to mind is they must spend hours a day in the gym.
Well, I’m here to tell you that more is not always better. In medicine, much research is done to determine the minimum effective dose. That’s because too little of the medicine won’t provide the desired effect, and too much can be or dangerous, or even deadly.
What researchers look for is the minimum effective dose, and when it comes to exercise that’s what you should be looking for. Too much exercise can lead to injury an increase in the stress hormone cortisol which leads to fat gain. That’s the reason why so many people toil away at the gym yet have little to show for it.
There is an inverse relationship between duration and intensity when it comes to exercise. Fit Tribe’s 30 minute workouts have proven that short intense bursts of exercise, create the biggest increase metabolism and the best results with the least risk of injury.
Losing fat and becoming healthy is not just about working out, it’s a lifestyle. Working out is the cornerstone of that lifestyle, but proper rest and nutrition are absolutely necessary to achieve results.
As I see it, there are four major components to making a health and fitness transformation. That is lasting and permanent.
1. Proper Coaching and Accountability
Living a healthy lifestyle is really achieved as a solo activity. Working out is more fun, safe and effective when done in a group and under the supervision of professionals.
2. Short Duration High Intensity Interval Training
Working out at high intensity for short durations under the watchful eye of experienced professional is paramount in achieving safe results.
