Although today was hard, my legs felt less painful. This is due to the fact that apparently my muscles are getting used to each exercise. The important thing Catherine taught me today was intensity! By this, she got me to move quickly onto the next set without any break between. Catherine stated that, in the first set of a specific strength exercise we use 60% of muscle fibers in that group, so for best results and greater recruitment, you need to fatigue that “60%” in the first set so that you recruit MORE muscle fibres as you move straight into the next!
As well as the physical training benefits at Educogym, you really gain a much greater knowledge of exercise physiology along the way. The team expain everything very thoroughly.
