Strength Training

The Smarty Pants Work-out is high intensity slow motion training designed and proven to build strength and provide long term health benefits.

From our mid-twenties – we begin to lose ½ pound of muscle per year. Additionally, there is a systemic loss of bone density and flexibility. Allowing these changes to occur without action causes us to feel the negative effects of aging!

Through a weight training regimen – we can combat the negative effects of aging – and maintain a strong, healthy body as we grow older.

The Smarty Pants Work-Out is slow motion high intensity weight training that utilizes MedX® equipment to perform exercises each engaging multiple muscle groups. Exercises follow a full range of motion aligned with muscle and joint function – to eliminate unnecessary strain. Consistent with the Slow Motion High Intensity protocol, exercises are performed through slow controlled movement – avoiding the use of momentum. Exercises are measured based on Time Under Load – taking into account both the weight and the duration of the exercise with the ideal combination being a weight that yields muscle failure in 90 seconds.

As a strength training program – the Smarty Pants Work-Out provides a number of benefits:

1. Increased Strength
Slow Motion High Intensity training yields optimal results – developing both fast twitch and slow twitch muscles. Increasing strength and fitness.

2. Increased Cardiovascular Performance
Strength training IS the most effective training for cardiovascular performance. Through Slow Motion High Intensity Training, participants challenge their heart and lungs to meet the needs of their muscles – pumping more oxygen through the bloodstream in response to the working muscles. The intensity of the Smarty Pants Work-out challenges your muscles – the more your muscles are challenged, the more oxygen your muscles require, and the harder your cardiovascular system will need to work.

3. Increased Bone Density
The original High Intensity Slow Motion protocol was developed in conjunction with an osteoporosis study. Weight training is the only non-medical way to reverse or halt osteoporosis, and High Intensity Slow Motion training is the safest way to build bone density.

4. Increased Metabolism
Increasing muscle increases metabolism. Simply, through the Smarty Pants Work-out – you can turn your body into a fat burning machine in 20 minutes per week!

5. Increased Flexibility
Using Medx equipment – the Smarty Pants Work-out engages the full range of motion. The functional flexibility of muscles is increased by moving through a complete range of motion. In addition to muscles, working through a full range of motion also increases the flexibility of tendons and ligaments.

6. Reduced Risk of Injury
In our daily lives, muscle provides a cushion around bones and joints – stabilizing and protecting them by absorbing impact and keeping bones, joints and organs safe. Increasing muscle increases cushion and increases protection from injury.
