Chasing Mercury, Battling Hercules: Getting Fitter and Stronger with Periodization Training

The positive physiological adaptation to training is the result of a correctly timed alternation between stress and recovery. How that stress and recovery is applied determines the results that individuals achieve from their training efforts. Whether a person is interested in losing weight or training for a marathon, the best training programs are planned. Chasing Mercury, Battling Hercules: Getting Fitter and Stronger With Periodization Training provides an overview of the theory and research of periodized training, including the use of training cycles, with examples of how to properly periodize strength and cardio training.

The Art and Science of Recovery

Recovery may be the most overlooked aspect of exercise. Everyone seems to focus on how many minutes to bike, what heart rate to run, or how much weight to lift. Improvements in fitness, however, occur during the recovery period between workouts, not during the workout itself. Since the recovery period is so important to maximize gains in fitness, you can benefit from guidelines on how to optimally recover after workouts. In this DVD, you’ll learn optimal post-workout recovery strategies and the secrets of designing recovery intervals during workouts. (111 min)

The Resting Metabolic Rate Debate

Many individuals believe that strength training adds muscle mass, thereby increasing their resting metabolic rate, so they burn more calories all day, which helps them lose weight. While scientific research has documented that metabolic rate is acutely elevated after a workout, it’s not as certain that resting metabolic rate is chronically increased. The Resting Metabolic Rate Debate reviews the research on the effects of aerobic exercise and strength training on resting metabolic rate and details the scientific “truth” about this complex issue.
