Milk a Muscle, Fast & Slow!

Lifting weights, running cardio drills, stretching out in a yoga class or engaging a deeper layer of musculature in Pilates all provide benefits when basic technique is understood and performed. A “good” exercise always contains the building blocks to a getting a great body if correct form and breathing is used from start to finish. But how do speed and resistance factor into creating results?

Moving a light weight steadily many times adds a cardiovascular component to a workout, boosting metabolism, improving heart fitness while activating the muscle tissue. Slowing the same exercise down completely, using a heavier load for 3-4 sets of 10-15 repetitions increases bone density and builds the sleek, calorie-burning muscle mass that  triggers and maintains weight loss.
