Super Slow Exercise Facts

It's not how much exercise your body can withstand.
It's how little it actually requires.

It's not the calories burned DURING exercise.
It's the calories burned AS A RESULT OF exercise.

Exercise is not recreation, and recreation is not exercise.
Use good exercise to stay healthy, and use that good health to enjoy your recreation.

Fatigue each muscle group to failure - once - then stop and allow the body to recover and grow
More is NOT better.
Strength training delays aging factors.
Make your workouts intense, brief, and infrequent.

Super Slow Exercise increases HDL, Bone Mineral Density, and Glucose Tolerance.

Note: Several studies involving elderly nursing home patients 85-90 years old showed 30-50% strenth gains in the first 6 weeks, so age itself is certainly no contraindication.
It can be done ina very short period of time, usually about 15-20 minutes 1 - 2 times a week.
