High Intensity Training (HIT) or Heavy lifting

Image
It is not unusual to find individuals who are always debating strength training vs. high intensity training.  It is always a thought, which style is best and how to use each. I would have to say that no matter which one you prefer it's​ all about which one you are more comfortable with, the one that you prefer or the purpose. I've tried both, if your preference is to have a brief and intense workout then the HIT us for you.  If your preference is to workout while taking your time then the normal strength training is for you.Combining both is the best way to go, most people combine the technical aspects of strength training with the high intensity training and that makes for a perfect way to not only burn fat at a higher rate but also to get shredded and show gains. At the end of the day it is about preference, what your comfortable with and what it is that you are trying to achieve.

It's ok to workout fasted (on an empty stomach)

Image
So you think that you really need food to get you through a workout?According to some articles, the thought of loading up on carbohydrates has been called into question. It is true that having carbs before a workout is good and it might even increase performance but what I have read lately it also says that it stops the body from using that stored fat for the needed energy. Fasted is the optimal state to workout because during that time the body releases insulin to lower the blood sugar, proteins and fats that are absorbed by our digestive system so that the glucose can be transported to muscles and be used for energy. So now that you know....what are you going to do?It is ok to workout fasted or if you prefer to have your normal intake of pre-work out or protein before the workout....now you know it is ok.
