While energy can certainly improve your training, you need these muscle fibers to everyday movements, too. Even something as simple as crossing a busy street before the light becomes red requires your fast twitch muscle fibers for action.
And, as you probably already know, up the intensity of your workout can do wonders for your metabolism moving the “ON” switch to afterburner. So even if you are dropped into his desk for a couple of hours after running through your workout, your body will torch calories at a higher rate. How’s that for bang for your buck fitness?
Even if you have weak knees, you can still get some of the benefits with a simple modification. Instead of making an all-out squat jump, move faster, and rise all the way down to the toes, reaching his arms over his head, at the top of each rep.
