Surge Training for Sculpting Legs Via Maximized Living

Cynthia’s Health Hut: Surge Training for Sculpting Legs Via Maximized Living.


Surge Training Exercise Program
What is Surge Training?
Surge Training (also referred to as Burst training) is when you perform a series of “surges” in your workout followed by the same period of rest. During each surge you are pushing your body to its maximum potential and then resting for the same duration you performed the exercise.
How do I start Surge Training?
First, warm your body up with some gentle stretches, a brisk walk, or a few basic yoga poses.
Once you are ready, choose an exercise. Some ideas are running, biking, using an elliptical machine or a treadmill, swimming, running in place, or even jumping rope. You can be as creative as you would like the idea is to move and use maximum effort for every second of the surge.
Now, you want to perform each “Surge” by following the routine below and repeat it 3 times.
  • 10-30 seconds of high intensity SURGE movement
  • 10-30 seconds of recovery/rest or low intensity movement
  • 10-30 seconds of high intensity SURGE movement
  • 10-30 seconds of recovery or low intensity movement
  • 10-30 seconds of high intensity SURGE movement
  • 2 minutes of recovery or low intensity movement
This should be done 3 times per week – which amounts to 12 minutes of exercise a week. Yes, only 12 minutes!!!
Note: Interval times (up to 60 seconds) and the number of surges can be increased for more advanced athletes.
What are the benefits of Surge Training?
When you are SURGE Training, you are elevating your heart rate and working it to its maximum. Oxygen is rapidly pumping through your body in larger amounts, which helps burn fat in higher quantities and more efficiently. Even when you are resting your body will continue to burn fat and build muscle.
The Center for Disease Control (CDC) and the American College of Sports Medicine concluded in 1995 that intermittent, short surges of accumulated exercise increases the body’s anaerobic capacity by 28 percent and increases oxygen intake.
Using surge training for weight loss relies on scientific proof to bring you maximized results with targeted effort to drop pounds and inches and to gain a better quality of life.

Make a Date With Fitness ~ Reblog from Refine Fitness Studio

Refine Fitness Studio

One of my favourite things this time of year is getting back to my regular routine. Up with the kids at 6: 30 a.m., out the door by 7: 45 and at my studio or teaching in the Department of Kinesiology at the University of Windsor by 8: 30 a.m.

My clients are just like me. Many wander from their regular routines over the summer and are now getting back on track.

A great way to adopt an exercise routine is to book three or four regular appointments for yourself. Exercise is like many other things: If you don’t schedule it, it won’t happen. Having a regular time to exercise also helps you mentally get into the routine while scheduling other things around the workout.

Most busy adults I know need to take a step further and schedule this appointment with a trainer or group exercise instructor who will keep…

Quick Set Straight Leg Dead Lift Exercise

Quick Sets Exercises Give You More for Less

Keeping healthy includes exercising 3-7 times a week 5 – 60 minutes a day. Check out the Straight Leg Dead Lift Exercise. Why exercise? It is one of the best natural treatments for Depression, Anxiety, weight loss, Osteoporosis, Mental Health, Fibromyalgia, Chronic Fatigue, Cell Oxygenization to aid in Cancer Treatment and other diseases.

Quick Sets Give You More for Less

Quick Sets are the ultimate way to perform resistance training. These routines can be as simple and as short as you need them to be in order to fit them into your schedule or level of motivation on any given day or week.   This is the ideal way to add more weight training to your MaxT3 program, take advantage of the T3 principles, and leverage science to radically cut the amount of time spent working out. This program can also be performed more or fewer times per week, dependent on how quickly you desire to make changes to your muscles.
Due to the type of adaptation the body must make while performing Quick Sets, you are able to create significant changes in the strength, fitness, and composition (fat percentage vs. muscle) of a body part within three minutes. Elite athletes to busy moms, overworked businessmen and businesswomen, or students on a tight time schedule can still be extremely effective in their lives and get in shape all at the same time.
These routines can be used to increase the intensity of your workouts, shorten your workout times, and very safely speed up your results. They are designed so anyone can perform them and make great changes on any level. Whether you are a retired grandma or an aspiring Olympian, there is a plan for you.

For the purpose of fitness, there are only eight body parts to  consider:  chest,  biceps,  triceps,  shoulders,  abdominals, back/lats,  legs (which  include  quads,  hams,  glutes,  inner/ outer   thighs),  and  calves.  By exercising  with  squats   or lunges,  you  can  actually  hit  your  hamstrings, quads,  the glutes  (butt),  and  inner  and  outer  thighs  (typical  trouble  spots for women) all with one exercise.
Hit each body part once per week, and you’ll only invest about twenty-four minutes  to get in great shape!  You can add additional lifting to MaxT3, be ridiculously fit, and have done it all in like an hour and a half.  The same or even less time then some people spend in the gym for 1 workout!

Types of Resistance Exercise

Upper Body Exercises
 Fly press
 Dumbbell  curl
 Inclined dumbbell  flye press
• Hammer curl
 Dumbbell  fly
• Inclined dumbbell  curl
 Triceps pushdown

Performing Quick Sets

Decline Quick Set1. Pick one exercise and do it for eight to twelve repetitions until failure.
2. Rest for five to six seconds.
3. Lower the weight five to twenty pounds and do the same exercise again for six to eight repetitions until failure.
4. Rest five to six seconds.
5. Lower the weight five to twenty pounds again and do another six to eight repetitions until failure
Pause Quick Set 1.     Pick  one exercise and do it  for eight to twelve repetitions until failure.
2.     Rest five to six seconds.
3.     Using the same weight, do it again until failure.
4.     Rest five to six seconds
5.    Repeat this process until you cannot do the exercise for more than one to two repetitions.

Monster Set

A Monster Set is when,  after  performing an  exercise on  one  body  part,   instead   of  resting,  you  immediately perform an exercise on another  body part.  The other  body part  should be one that  was not  used while exercising  the first body part. For example,  combine  chest and biceps, or quadriceps and hamstrings.
Monster Sets are combined  with Decline or Pause Sets so you can get a tremendously effective workout done in a very short amount of time. For example,  after you perform  a Pause Set with the incline fly press for your chest, you can immediately begin performing a Decline Set with  hammer  curls for your biceps.

Reblog – Why Weight Loss Can Be Tough

I can relate to this alot, I keep going up 5 lbs, down 5 lbs.

Refine Fitness Studio

You’re eating the same kind of foods, about the same amount and exercising about the same amount you always have, but suddenly you notice that it’s harder to keep the weight off or lose those few extra pounds.

Nothing has changed you tell yourself, except your a bit older than you used to be. What you may not be aware of is that your body has changed making weight loss more difficult.

Over 40 Weight Loss
As we age, our metabolism slows down which means you are burning fewer calories than when you were younger. There is no magical age in which this happens, but seems to occur more often when people reach 40 to 50 years of age. The secret to weight loss at any age is actually a very simple formula; consume fewer calories than you burn.
The problem is that as we age, we often fail to…

Creating new Healthy Habits for eating, exercising and depression!

Image Reblogged from
We all get stuck in ruts and have times when it is hard to motivate ourselves. How do we keep the interest, create new healthy habits and keep eating foods that are good for us when there is so many bad food choices and it is easier to watch a movie then to exercise? I’ve been in a holding pattern and not doing my exercise and eating too much sugar. I go through this when STRESS enters my life and people that I love try to manipulate me or a death in the family. I recently lost my father and cat of 28 years. So fighting off the depression has been a challenge. The POSITIVE is that I do continue to eat healthy foods mixed in with the bad ones and I keep up with deep breathing meditations for lots of great oxygen to circulate through my system.

I love food, especially veggies and fruits, so I create lots of tasty combinations and do the 6 small meals per day to keep me from grabbing a bag of chips or carton of ice cream. It helps that I snack on small pieces of  85% dark chocolate or Cacoa Nibs – YUM and Almonds are a good snack too.

I have been upping my Vitamin B Stress supplements and Vitamin D as well, I have found through the years that I need more of these just to keep myself from going down the road of doom and gloom.

The challenge is the exercise – which is one of the best things I have found for fighting off the depression. I am looking focusing on creating new habits to try and help me get motivated. I find that I have to up my ratio of happy tunes and movies or shows so that I don’t fall deeper into depression. I have found that using the MaxT3 surge system can be done in small increments of time so that you are on 20 seconds off 20 seconds and you can start with just 5 minutes a day. So currently my goal is to motivate myself and to not expect myself to do more than 5 minutes a day and if I do more great! Part of creating new goals and Healthy Habits is to know when you are expecting more from yourself than you can give. If I set a goal and fail at it, it only adds to the depression and makes me want to eat more Sugar. So I try not to set myself up to fail. But the big question still is what new way can I motivate myself to get off the couch and move my body when the stress/depression has me so tired that all I want to do is sleep. Sometimes a buddy system helps where I help each other because it’s not all about me. I think I will call my buddy and ask her to give me that verbal butt kick to get me moving.

Do You Have Any Suggestions? What are your ways to motivate yourself and create new habits I’d love to hear them! Love, Light and Happiness to you all have a great day/night!

Balance Work and Play

Being healthy means you have Balance in your life. Mix it up with fun healthy activities that can help you burn calories and put a smile on your face too!

Coach Carolyn

Hey! Forget about what you think I’m going to say here. You’re thinking that I’m going to tell you to schedule more play time, do less work time. Well, that might be a good idea, but that’s not what I’m going to talk about. Turns out that the type of play you choose can help you out at work. Intrigued?

If you’ve gone to college, been away at a retreat, or spent much of any time in the business world, you’ve likely taken some sort of self-assessment that has labeled you as “ENFP” or “Yellow” or told you that you have a “Driver” personality. And while that is interesting, particularly in relation to how those around you differ from you, what else did you learn to do with the information? Unfortunately, in the context of these learning events there is rarely time to delve much deeper. Here’s one way to…
