I have to be frank and say up front I despise the phrases " I just want to tone up " and " I like to go light weight high reps ". If you utter these words to me, then I completely understand you have no knowledge of training your body or how it adapts to the stresses of weight training, or fitness for that matter. So this article is not about the mythical toning up or training to lift weights many, many, many times with high rep work. This is about the proven science of building your best body ever.

My High Intensity Group Training also known as (H.I.G.T) was developed in 2004 and has fully evolved into the training program it is today. My training methods and principles will seem a bit extreme to some, however at thirty seven I can assure you they were developed with the idea that our bodies are ageing, and as athletes we are simply getting older. Imagine a training method that would allow you to better your fitness level and build more lean muscle tissue along with burning loads of fat was possible, even at any age. With that in mind understand H.I.G.T is efficient and effective and results-driven.

My H.I.G.T program takes men to the point where they are certain they want to quit! Sure that they can't possibly continue, then has you work even harder. You will develop explosive power and speed, you will learn the true meaning of functional fitness. Your body will expend more calories during your time in the gym, then continue to rev your metabolism hours afterwards.

H.I.G.T involves the recruitment of both slow & fast twitch muscle fibers. I wont bother with the science. I will tell you H.I.G.T was developed and planned to recruit fast twitch muscle fibers in abundance in order to better increase your potential for growth of overall lean muscle tissue.

More muscle, more body fat burned, more calories burned at rest. Hey this is work! If you are looking for fun, try PlayStation. Look I only want to help you lose those pounds and feel good about yourself. You have to build lean tissue to burn fat, you have to lift weights to build lean tissue, simple. My high intensity group training will drastically change your body composition, it will change your life... this is exactly what you have been waiting for.......More to come.
