We have created a room in which you can be completely focused on training your lower body without any distractions, providing the perfect environment for high intensity training.
Training intensity (along with consistency) is the key factor to making the most of your time in the gym. *NOTE: intensity, does not mean heavy weights!!!
An athlete must always use correct form and focus upon muscular contraction when exercising. If the weights you lift are thrown up (momentum), you will not engage a full muscular contraction. There are three levels of muscular failure 1, positive, 2, contractive, and 3, negative failure. Most athletes may reach positive failure during a workout. However, to reach maximum muscular failure one must train to negative failure. To train at such a level, the workouts must remain brief, but very intense. This form of training pioneered by Arthur Jones, Dr. Ellington Darden, and further developed by the great Mike Mentzer is known as High Intensity Training (H.I.T). The workouts are the catalyst to create an over-compensatory growth of muscle. A de-compensatory affect (otherwise loosely known as over-training) is an indication of being exposed to high levels of stress. Dr. Hans Selye, tested the General Adaptation Syndrome (G.A.S) – exposure to enough stress, the body will over-compensate, too much stress (over-training), the body will loose tissue (de-compensate). Workouts MUST be brief (30-40 minutes max from warm-up to fininsh), very intense, performed with correct form and above all – maintain LOTS of rest time (10-14 days between each body-part) to allow for the body to regenerate broken-down muscle, then generate new muscle.
