You’re probably very busy?
You have work…
Time is tight and your biggest commodity
I spoke with someone last night…
Who despite all of these constraints
Is also doing 90 min gym sessions a few times each week
They must be bloody knackered!
Plus to rub salt into the wound…
They’ve been getting nowhere towards their goal
So is there an answer…
To achieving your fitness, performance and physique ambitions?
DENSITY & INTENSITY
Now these two are kind of apposing
As too much density compromises intensity
So it’s about striking the right balance
Density is about organising your training session structure
So you can get through the optimal amount of work
But without doing so much, the intensity drops
(Because your rests are too short, too many exercises etc.)
Well one way is to utilise supersetting
Doing one exercise, followed by another…
Then having a good rests approx 2.5 minutes plus
But you have to be careful…
As superset the wrong exercises and you’re going to compromise gains
So only group two DIFFERENT movements
(e.g. push + pull, lower limb extension and push)
Where everyone goes wrong is they do the kitchen sink
Throw in tonnes of exercises to their session…
Then have really short rests and no quality training affect
(Not intense enough)
Your sessions should not last more than 60 minutes
That’s for resistance and conditioning training
The only exception would be endurance athletes with their specific fitness work
At Coalition Performance all of our sessions are 45 minutes max
The perfect blend of density and intensity…
The optimal recipe to get you what you want, as quick as possible
Why train for longer if its not needed?
Get home, spend time with the family etc.
Unlike everyone and everywhere else…
We know EXACTLY the processes to achieve what you want
So we only put in the work which WE KNOW will work optimally
We don’t use a kitchen sink approach of throwing everything at you
(Hoping something will stick)
That’s what coaching and working as a fitness and performance coach…
With the world’s finest athletes, coaches and scientists gives you
