Written by Deborah Caruana RN, MES, CPT

It's a very simple training system. Consisting of using your body in space with simple counts. Music is optional. With every position and exercise your concentration is focused on alignment, form, breathing, pacing, contracting or relaxing. You can move easily and flow from one exercise torepparttar next with no wasted time or effort. Because it flows so well, you can make it cardiovascular or take designated controlled strength training time breaks. Imagine you can do a whole hour of cardio without getting onrepparttar 135835 boring, dreaded treadmill or elliptical machines. Atrepparttar 135836 same time you can tone and strengthen your core as well as every other muscle in your body. Strength training and cardio all in one! Since you are using your own body weight in different positions you can go deeper intorepparttar 135837 muscles for better sculpting and strength enhancement by holding positions, changingrepparttar 135838 rhythms, or alteringrepparttar 135839 positions slightly. You are always in total control of how much energy you exert for each exercise. If you want to sculpt deeper intorepparttar 135840 muscles, you simply arrange your positioning deeper intorepparttar 135841 exercise position. If you want to lighten uprepparttar 135842 load you simply releaserepparttar 135843 contraction to a more comfortable exertion level. You will learn specific breathing techniques to help you sustain more difficult positions, to make them more tolerable. Because you are using only your body in space there are no limitations torepparttar 135844 positions or exercises you can do. You are limited only by your own imagination. You can work every and any muscle in your entire body to its maximal exertion levels. There are no machines to waste time arranging and dismantling weights or changing positions. These exercises can be done anywhere with little or no equipment. You may want some privacy but if there is room for your body and available oxygen, you can dorepparttar 135845 workout! If you've ever used those gym machines, how do you think they translate into real life everyday activities or even sports? Maybe you get stronger? Maybe, but study after study has proven that training with traditional gym equipment doesn't carry over into day to day functioning or sports performance improvement. Lactate Threshold Strength Training does though. You are imitating with exertion simple everyday movements and from those positions holding, breathing and correcting alignment and perfecting form. So it completely translates intorepparttar 135846 day to day movements of life and living. Of course you can imitate your specific sports as well. Helping you make incredible sports performance gains. Lactate Threshold Strength Training also carries over into postural awareness and correction.
