Welcome to the next edition of the Fitchicks Insider VIP Newsletter.
We’ve all heard the adage; “Strong is the new sexy” or “Strong is the new skinny”. At Fitchicks we agree with that sentiment because getting strong through heavy weight training does give you a slim sexy body and our fitchicks are proof of that.
The growing trend amongst women is to move away from purely cardio based training like running on a treadmill for hours and moving towards the Fitchick type of heavy weight training.
One of the reasons behind better results from weight training is EPOC or after burn. EPOC stands for Excess Post Oxygen Consumption which is the increased rate of oxygen intake following strenuous activity. EPOC causes us to use energy (calories) to correct the oxygen deficit. In lay terms our metabolism keeps firing and we keep burning calories for up to 48 hours after a heavy weight session.
It’s all about intensity girls, the higher the intensity, the higher the EPOC, so don’t stand around chatting. Lift heavy, sweat plenty, high five each other and go home.
You can’t live without it!
