High Intensity Training- Naturally Intense HIT 10 Minute Workouts

High Intensity Training- Naturally Intense HIT 10 Minute Workouts

  • A 10 Minute High Intensity Workout lasts only 1/6 of a lunch hour! It’s the average time it takes to check and reply to your emails! The time it takes to walk 10 New York City blocks! With such short time commitment anyone can do it!

  • “Countless studies have shown that the most commonly cited reason for not exercising is a “lack of time.”… However, there is a growing appreciate of the potential for intense, interval-based training to stimulate improvements in health and fitness in a range of populations”

  • “Data suggest that a low frequency, high intensity approach to training is associated with a greater long-term-adherence as compared with a high frequency, low intensity approach.”- Martin Gibala, PhD, chairman of the Department of Kinesiology, McMaster University, Ontario, Canada.

HOW OUR 10 MINUTE HIGH INTENSITY WORKOUTS WORK…

Our bodies are naturally lazy. That may sound like a bad thing, but when you think about the amount of energy our ancestors had to burn stalking, spearing, and dragging home an antelope – or running from a hungry lion – it makes sense that our bodies evolved to conserve energy. In other words, we’re naturally inclined to take the path of least resistance. We choose to walk rather than run. We choose to sit rather than stand. When a hiker goes missing in the mountains, rescuers simply need to focus on the areas where the walking is easiest, and they will almost always find them!

OVERCOMING THE CHALLENGE

The challenge – and the advantage – of the Naturally Intense 10-Minute Workout is that it requires you to override your instincts and choose the path of greatest, not least, resistance. The whole point of this method is to get the maximum return on your investment of time and effort – the biggest bang for your buck!

That’s how you burn the most body fat, build the most muscle and get stronger and the key to accomplishing that goal is to choose exercises that are so demanding that you’d rather not do them and to perform those exercises in ways that make you want to stop as soon as possible.

If that sounds counterintuitive, it is.

However, the people who get the best results from their training are the ones who choose the most taxing exercises.

THE BIG QUESTION

How does the average man or woman increase their training intensity high enough each time to get the most out of a workout?

Answer: By training at high intensity for SHORT periods of time and if the workout only lasts 10 minutes, anyone can do it!

WITH HIGH INTENSITY TRAINING EVERYONE CAN GET WORLD CLASS RESULTS

For most people, the thought of doing set after set of exercise in the gym for an hour or more 5 to 6 times a week makes their toes curl.

But with Naturally Intense High intensity Training, you spend only a few minutes doing any one exercise- as that’s all you will need! The focus is on compound movements that work several muscles at once and we implement a variety of high-intensity training principles to get the most out of each exercise, but in a way that ensures that you never get injured!

Yes, it’s hard, but the point of high-intensity training is that as hard as it may be, it’s doable, and nearly anyone, regardless of fitness level, can do it – and do it well.

Think of this form of training as a side door to the kinds of results an elite athlete might achieve by training for hours each week.

WHY YOU WILL LOVE IT!

Besides its short duration, the fact that it’s only 3 times a week (you’ll need the rest) – and the long-term promise of a stronger, healthier and better looking you – there’s another powerful motivator that will get you through your Naturally Intense 10-Minute Workout:

You see results fast.

In as little as 2 weeks you’ll see the changes in your body. You might not expect it but there are few things more exhilarating than really pushing yourself physically.

Most of our clients are exceptionally busy men and women who all said they could not have achieved their fitness goals with a conventional program that required a significant time commitment given their hectic schedules.

And that the intense but tolerably short nature of the workouts being the reason they stuck with it longer than any other program they tried.

QUICK FACTS

  • Short High Intensity Training Workouts make you burn more subcutaneous & abdominal fat than ANY other types of exercise, while increasing your strength and building lean muscle mass!
  • Short High Intensity Training Workouts increase your overall fitness AS MUCH IF NOT MORE than longer conventional workouts![5,7,8,10,11]
  • Due to the shorter time commitment, Short High Intensity Training Workouts are associated with GREATER ADHERENCE [4], and the results stay with you longer![13,14]
  • High Intensity Training has been proven SAFE & EFFECTIVE for a range of populations regardless of age, gender or fitness level! [12]

The Hard Truth About Natural Bodybuilding!

My very first major competition here in the US was quite something.

I had trained for years and was really excited to finally be in a place where I could step onstage and realize my dream of looking like I belonged up there after years of training.

The day before the show, I met an old friend who I hadn`t seen in a few months, and he looked at me with a puzzled expression and asked,

"Kevin, what`s wrong?

Did you stop training?"

Yep!

He asked that!

I was in the best shape of my life up to that point and yet to him it looked like I had stopped training.

High Intensity Leg Extensions Pyramid Set.

This is what a set can typically look like, and I say "may" because I don`t always do straight sets and change things up quite a bit.

First set is to warm things up and do a bit of a check to see where I am, (are my knees okay?) and to get my mind ready for what`s to come.

Second set is where things get a little more difficult with the small rest periods, and for this workout I just decided on 10 reps.

I was going to do 10 reps no matter how heavy it became, same cadence, same squeeze, same focus.

And the last set it`s just that- it hurts from the very first rep but I just go to that place and keep the pace going with minimal rest.

Thanks to my training partner and partner in crime @egcitrin for loading the plates, and thanks to you for watching!!!

Still training, hope you are too and as always, Excelsior!!! #naturallyintense

Can You Make Gains with Lighter Weights and High Intensity Training?

New video out on YouTube and you can access it by clicking on the link in my bio or look up the latest video over at Kevin Richardson- Naturally Intense

I don`t give an answer but instead an observation.

A client study of a middle aged man who had not trained before but had made some progress over time and was able to lift the 70lb dumbbells for 6 reps, with a little help.

All training in a very well equipped gym with Naturally Intense High Intensity Training.

Now, the lockdown happens and he is relegated to training at home for 2 years with just a pair of 25lb dumbbells, and later a 60lb barbell.

That`s all he has for a three year period, nothing else!

He goes back into the gym

Picks up the 70lb dumbbells

And what do you think happens?

To find out check out my latest video and thanks in advance for taking the time to look at my work!

Still training, hope you are too and as always, Excelsior!!! #naturallyintense

You don`t have to be massive to be impressive.

You don`t have to use drugs.

You don`t have to be so big that you can`t walk up a flight of stairs without being out of breath.

And you certainly don`t have to look like a circus freak.

I think one of the problems with the enhanced look is that it feeds into the notion of excess.

The idea that what you have and who you are intrinsically isn`t good enough.

But you are.

You don`t need to be almost 300lbs and the muscle you are able to build naturally as the fruit of your hard work and years of dedication is always going to be enough if you are of sound mind and sound body.

You may not be an Instagram sensation with millions of followers, you may stop traffic walking down the street with a t-shirt on, but what you learn, how you feel and the better person you ultimately become on a natural path of self improvement will always hold far more meaning and last longer than any potential social media fame.

So stay natural, stay the course, believe in yourself because you are worth believing in, and as always, Excelsior!!! #naturallyintense

Here`s How I Do A High Intensity Belt Squat...

(Hint- I make it as hard as physically possible!)

I love belt squats.

They put less stress on your back and they are a bit like a more functional leg press, without taking up too much space (which is everything for a home gym!)

And this is one of the ways I use it- jump squats with weights!

To say it`s intense would not even begin to describe the blinding pain of this movement with this much weight, much less the week and a half of soreness that follows.

But plyometrics are one of the best ways to build muscle and increase strength!

Normally I would say you should go try this next time you train, but for this one I would say if you do start really light as most folks get an intense enough workout with bodyweight jump squats.

(And for the equipment minded, it`s a home made belt squat that I put together myself and installed on a @roguefitness Monster Lite Rack)

Still training, hope you are too and as always, Excelsior!!! #naturallyintense
