Below is a brief description about the program VFEx for fitness and fat loss.
Exercise is a subset of physical activity that is planned, structured, and repetitive and has as a final or an intermediate objective with the improvement or maintenance of physical fitness (World Health Organization)
PRINCIPLES OF EXERCISE:
Specificity“You get what you train”. Your exercise needs to be specific to what you want to accomplish
Overload“Get out of your Comfort Zone” Pushing your body to do exercise beyond what it’s accustomed to doing
ReversibilityOptimal maintenance exercises should be performed in order not to lose the fitness and other benefits gained. Fat loss as a goal requires one to train with specific type of workout at a progressive intensity to maintain the desired outcome. INTENSITY TRUMPS VOLUME. Exercise needs to be intense. For Instance, when at the beginning if you run at certain speed and burn 120 calories in 15 minutes, over a period you will become efficient. Now for you to burn the same number of calories you may need to run 20-30 min or increase the (speed)intensity. To achieve your goal at a stipulated period of time you need to train more intensely.
