BODYMAX 212°F is unique because each D.I.R.T.(y)TM workout is comprised of our Max-Tension and Max-Metabolic workouts that you simply won't find any else.
Max-Tension The first circuit of every BODYMAX 212°F routine is dedicated to our Max-Tension exercise.
This is where we focus on building the underlying shape and fullness of the muscle giving you the desired definition and contours in all the right places.
We do this by manipulating the amount of time the muscles spend under tension.
By doing this we incorporate a higher number of muscle fibers and activate more type 2 fibers resulting in fewer sets required to produce the same results.
Most people are taught to use a lesser weight spread it out over multiple sets and then they proceed to quickly run through the exercises.
They make the mistake of assuming that multiple easy efforts can equal one hard effort.
In doing so they completely ignore the time under tension factor (TUT). Time under tensions refers to how long your muscles are under stress.
The more time you spend contracting, stressing and working the muscle the more micro-tears you are going to create in the muscle.
It’ s these tiny tears that stimulate repair, new tissue production through the release of HGH and ultimately: growth.
Max-Metabolic The second part of every workout routine is focused on metabolic resistance training designed to burn fat and give overall definition to the specific muscles being worked in that training.
That means you will be working the cardio vascular system and getting the fat-burning and heart-healthy benefits of intense cardio along with the muscle-toning and shaping properties of a resistance training workout.
Because you will be doing this part of the training with little to no rest in between exercises, you will be forcing your body into what’s called an ‘oxygen debt’.
This is also known as the AFTERBURN effect.
The Afterburn Effect or epoch as its called, is a measure of the energy that is needed in order to return your body to its normal resting state after a workout and has been shown to burn MORE calories up to 36 post workout.
Hence, the HIGHER the intensity, the longer it takes for your body to reach its normal resting state, the more calories you burn.
Plus the BODYMAX 212°F program is based on the progressive overload principle which prevents your body from adapting and what most other popular programs seem to ignore.
That's why you stop getting results with other programs within a few weeks shortly of starting.
