New ACSM Exercise Guidelines

This morning I read a PFP digital article from the ACSM (American College of Sports Medicine).
It stated that people need 250 minutes of exercise per week to achieve high level goals.
This isn’t true!
Think of what sprinters bodies look like-lean & muscular.
They get that way from performing intense short bursts of exercise.
By doing intense, short duration, functional, full body exercises-you activate the CNS (Central Nervous System), which produces an anaerobic effect.
This will cause you to burn fat calories long after your done exercising.

My big problem with this misleading information is that it will demotivate people who don’t have the time to fit in as much exercise per week as the ACSM suggests (and who does have that much time?).

Watch the videos on this site and you will see the type of exercises that will promote great results in less time.

live right, Keith
