We’re trying something new. First we will podcast our show in it’s entirety then we’ll release just the guest interviews during the week. So please click on the POD button to listen to Dr. Fitness and the Fat Guy learn all about strength training from Fred Hahn, author of the best selling book The Slow Burn Fitness Revolution.
Slow Burn exercise stimulates positive adaptations to every aspect of your body including the cardiovascular system. Once stimulated, the body needs time, roughly 48-96 hours, to produce the benefits. Science indicates that if the quality of an exercise program is high, 2 sessions a week of exercise is more than adequate to cause optimal positive results. More than three sessions produces little added physical benefits.
Fred says that exercise itself doesn't make you "fit" or healthy. That it is sort of a necessary evil. The body becomes healthier if the exercise stimulus is adequate and if rest and recovery is allowed for. Quality not quantity is the key. That's why you can get such a great productive effective work out in such a short time with Fred's Slow Burn method .
During the show, Fred also talked about his upcoming new book about Childhood Obesity. He feels that eating too much sugar is a big part of the problem. For more information about Fred and his Slow Burn technique please go to his website www.seriousstrength.com
