Afterburn: The Body’s Secret Weapon
Our workouts unleash the amazing natural effect we call Afterburn. Afterburn, known in the scientific community as excess post-exercise oxygen consumption (EPOC), is an effect caused by the body’s continued need for oxygen after cardio and resistance training.
Once you’ve finished an intense round of exercise your body is just getting started. It must replenish its energy sources, re-oxygenate your blood, return breathing rates to pre-exercise levels, among other tasks. To accomplish all of this and return back to its normal state, your body must consume energy, and conveniently, that energy comes from you. This means post-exercise calorie burn no matter where you go or what you do after your workout. EPOC is EPIC, wouldn’t you say?
Studies show that the superior method in achieving the greatest amount of Afterburn is High Intensity Interval Training (HIIT).
Your Calories Won’t Know What HIIT Them
REGYMEN workouts are based on HIIT, or high-intensity interval training. HIIT is a technique that offers incredible benefits for human beings.
HIIT training sweeps your body into action through intense bursts of exercise, followed by short recovery periods, which may be active or resting. These intervals of all-out effort burn more fat in less time and keep your heart rate in the optimum zone.
Go From HIIT to Fit
REGYMEN workouts use HIIT training to give you a greater level of fitness and transform your body into a calorie burning furnace. Get ready to experience:
More calories torched. Intervals of high intensity exercise allow your body to burn more calories, resulting in faster weight loss.
Post-workout afterburn. Following your workout your body keeps shaving off the calories, up to 15% of those burned, even though you’re at rest.
Energy that goes ZOOM. HITT workouts help you produce more of the hormone HGH, which burns fat, builds muscle, AND increases energy levels. Beware: your coffee maker might start hiding your gym shoes out of pure envy.
That Thing Called Variety: Who Needs It, Anyway?
Seeing as how exercise is the single most exciting activity in the world, what’s the point of shaking things up? You might stand in line for your favorite artist or a rollercoaster ride, but let’s face it: no one’s camping outside the gym in their mom’s sleeping bag to be the first to run through the doors at 5 AM.
The reason is clear: the traditional workout isn’t appealing to most of us. It takes grit, effort, and discipline.
At REGYMEN we solve that problem with one of life’s greatest treasures: variety! By incorporating different, ever-changing movements and exercises into our programs we give members a safer and more exciting workout.
