THE GYM QUICK ROM CHALLENGE

Come to our office for THREE FREE sessions, personally trained with Dr. Scardino, and find out for yourself how the ROM works and prove to yourself the amazing results possible with the ROM! The only way to truly understand it is to experience it.

What can The ROM do for You?

Anybody, from the overworked executive to the most time-stressed mom, can fit an 8-minute workout into their busy schedule. You don�t even need workout clothes!

Build strength and develop lean muscle mass. Lean mass keeps burning calories long after the workout's done.

Fight the effects of aging... improve your bone density, reduce the risk of heart disease, and enhance your flexibility. Improve diabetes/ blood sugar, improve posture, strengthen bad knees and backs, rehabilitate painful shoulders and hips.

There is no impact to your joints, and none of the degenerative problems associated with other cardiovascular/weight training exercises.

Everyone, regardless of their age and current fitness level can improve their physical condition by working out just 8 minutes per day.

Remember.... the time you save is your own, to spend as you see fit. Studies show that most people (over 80%) don�t stick out a gym or exercise routine because they can�t commit the hour or more a day.

8 minutes 3 days a week is all you really need!

Do you have 8 minutes?

Most people believe that they need at least 30 to 45 minutes of continuous activity to get an effective daily workout. But they�re wrong. Clinical studies have revealed that you can achieve greater total aerobic benefits from an intense �full range of motion� workout using the proper equipment in only 8 minutes per session!

The ROM Challenge workout is built around the ROM Quick Gym Cross Trainer... an innovative, patented apparatus designed and engineered to provide a complete upper- or lower-body workout in just 4 minutes each a day. It�s a very intense 4 minutes, but it leaves you with more time to accomplish what you need to do each day.

Dr. Scardino is proud to present to you

The Gym Quick ROM Challenge!

Featuring the 8-minute workout

Created for

The new understanding of the human body.

Where you can

Lose Fat � Gain Strength � Increase Flexibility � Save Time (and money)

If you are over 40 and not working out on a fixed schedule, you can be dead certain that your body is paying a serious price for that luxury.

The science is clear that there is no middle ground after reaching a certain age. Your body�s condition is either declining or improving. Which direction it goes in is entirely up to you.

WEIGHT (FAT) LOSS

One primary concern in this respect is not absolute weight, but body composition. If tissue consists primarily of fat, you carry it. If tissue consists primarily of muscle, it carries you.

We know your muscles are your best fat burners, but it is helpful to know why.

Credit your mitochondria, the part of your cells that combines the calories you consume with oxygen utilized and turns this mixture into energy which you use to run everything in your body.

The rate at which these mitochondria transform food into energy is called the metabolic rate, and it is determined by two factors: the number of mitochondria you have and how efficiently they burn oxygen and calories.

Fortunately we have the power to dramatically influence both of these factors. It is called EXERCISE, and everyone can and must do it to keep the doctor and hospital at bay.

Fat vs Muscle

Exercise makes the mitochondria get better at consuming oxygen and that in turn increases your metabolic power. Then the increase in metabolic rate increases the number and function of calories burned even while you are sleeping or working at your computer.

This also explains why fad diets often do not produce permanent weight loss. The weight lost is half fat and half muscle. Since muscle burns calories 70 times faster than fat, losing muscle slows down metabolism. This makes it easier to gain weight, and harder to lose it, even while eating the same amount of calories.

It is easier to gain and retain fat than muscle. Losing fat takes work. Losing muscle is effortless.

Exercise is like great for your Brain!

Cardiovascular function is well known to be supported by aerobic EXERCISE.

What is not as well known is the new evidence that exercise appears to stave off the beginnings of Alzheimer�s disease and other cognitive disorders regardless of age.

A recent study in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences determined that after just 3 months of working out all of the subjects in the study appeared to sprout new neurons and those who gained the most in cardiovascular fitness also grew the most nerve cells.

These neurons created by EXERCISE show up in the hippocampus, an area of the brain that controls learning and memory. EXERCISE also seems to restore the hippocampus to a healthier, younger state.

What Is The Best Exercise

We can argue which exercise is best, but what we really need is to find the program that will insure long term adherence. The best exercise is the exercise you will do � long term.

Time seems to be the key element for most people when it comes to what they are willing to do

 no matter what it may be.

TOO AMAZING TO UNDERSTAND RIGHT AWAY

The ROM combines all 3 aspects of a complete and well rounded exercise regimen; cardio training, resistance training, flexibility training, and no other exercise equipment or method of exercise does that. And then the ROM does all of that in only 8 minutes per day and no other method of exercise can do that either.

8 minute cross-training on the ROM is equal to:

 20 to 45 minutes aerobic exercises for conditioning of the cardio-vascular and respiratory system.

 20 to 45 minutes resistance training for muscle toning and strength of all the body's major muscle groups.

 15 to 20 minutes of conventional stretching exercises for flexibility of all major muscles, tendons and joints.

Overall evaluation: Extremely time efficient. Requires only a few minutes of initial instruction. Non-impact exercise. Total cross-training in 8 minutes per day.

The ROM is designed to be used either each session 4 minutes alternated 4 to 5 days a week or both sessions upper and lower body for a total of 8 minutes three days a week. The following information speaks about both the 4 or 8 minute choices. Most of our clients utilize the ROM for the 8 minute sessions 3 days a week. When the following mentions 4 minutes it usually refers to one of the upper or lower body sessions.

What is the ROM?

1. The Most Time Effective Aerobic-Strength- Flexibility Workout Ever Developed

Most people believe that they need at least 30 to 45 minutes of continuous activity to get an effective daily workout. But they're wrong. Clinical studies have revealed that you can achieve greater total aerobic benefits from an intense "full range of motion" workout using the proper equipment, in only 4 minutes per session!

Dr. Scardino�s Gym Quick ROM Challenge is built around the ROM Quick Gym Cross Trainer... an innovative, patented apparatus designed and engineered to provide a complete upper- or lower-body workout in just 8 minutes a day. It's a very intense 8 minutes, but it leaves you with more time to accomplish what you need to do each day.

How does it work?

ROM's two exercise stations are engineered to engage almost all the muscle groups in the upper and lower body, and uses them through 80% of their range of motion in a fantastic 4 minute workout session. The ROM Quick Gym Cross Trainer engages a full range of motion under automatically adjusted resistance which in turn allows one to cut back effective exercise time to an incredible four minutes. In addition, the ROM Quick Gym Cross Trainer counteracts our natural tendency to contract and shrink with age and helps to elongate muscles. The innovative ROM (Range of Motion) Quick Gym Cross Trainer, is a non-impact workout benefitting everyone from athletes to senior citizens. The ROM develops long lean strong muscles similar to Yoga or Pilates in less time and a greater ability for anyone to be able to perform the exercises.

More on this...

The 85 pound flywheel of the ROM machine has a centrifugal brake on it. This means that even a very weak 100 year-old person can get the flywheel in motion by using either the upper body workout or the lower body workout, because there is zero resistance from the centrifugal brake until the flywheel has attained a speed of around 20 revolutions per minute. The centrifugal brake gradually engages and places resistance on the flywheel, making the exercise harder the faster the flywheel turns. A very weak person cannot spin the flywheel very fast before the centrifugal brake creates resistance exactly matching their ability.

RESISTANCE MATCHES USER'S STRENGTH: The centrifugal brake always matches the users work ability every second throughout the entire 4 minute exercise. A highly trained athlete can spin the flywheel very fast and therefore will be subject to a much higher workload than a weak elderly person. No matter how strong or weak a person is, the ROM will always apply the exact maximum workload a person is capable of. You will always meet your match and you will never be required to do more than what you are capable of. The ROM performance computer keeps track of the total work performed during the 4 minutes and calculates a score at the end of the 4 minute exercise. The weak person will wind up with a low score and the highly trained athlete will get a much higher score. The score will gradually increase during the weeks and months following your first 4 minute exercise on the ROM. The increase in the scores is a good motivator and an indication that you are gradually getting stronger and that you are attaining greater cardiovascular health. And at the same time you will become more limber because of the very large ranges of motion that your arms and legs go through. The range of motion is under your complete control. The machine does not make you go through ranges of motion you are not capable of.

The scientific explanation for how a person can get such great benefits in so short a time.

TIME REQUIREMENT FOR A CARDIO WORKOUT

The time required for an effective cardio-vascular exercise depends on the degree of oxygen consumption during the workout. The greater the amount of oxygen consumption during the workout, the shorter the required duration of a cardio workout. In other words, the quality of the workout determines the time required. More muscle cells involved means higher oxygen consumption means less time required. The ROM enables even totally out of shape people and seniors to achieve much higher oxygen consumption levels than with ANY OTHER FORM OF CONVENTIONAL EXERCISE and therefore they can shorten their exercise periods while getting superior results.

THE MYTH OF 20 TO 45 MINUTES:

Most everyone believes (incorrectly so) in the myth that a cardio workout requires at least 20 to 45 minutes per day. The truth is that the volume of oxygen consumption during the exercise determines the length of time required for a cardiovascular workout. The greater the amount of oxygen consumption during the exercise, the shorter the required workout time. Oxygen consumption is expressed in milliliters of oxygen per kilogram of body weight per minute (mlO2/kg/min). With conventional forms of exercise it is nearly impossible for the untrained general public to reach the high levels of oxygen consumption required for a short and effective cardio workout. With the ROM machine untrained individuals will easily reach the very high levels of oxygen consumption that require only minutes for an effective aerobic workout that yields the same or better cardiovascular benefits than the conventional 20 to 45 minute aerobic workouts practiced by the general public.

To understand this, you need to read and understand the following lengthy technical explanation:

TIME REQUIRED FOR OTHER WORKOUTS

Walking at a pace of 3 miles per hour consumes a low 7mlO2/kg/min and therefore requires about 85 minutes for significant benefits to the cardio-vascular system. Sprinting at a pace of 15 miles per hour consumes a high 50 to 60mlO2/kg/min (this is a 4 minute mile pace) and therefore requires only 3 minutes for significant benefits to the cardio-vascular system . Following is a table showing different activities walking, jogging, running and their oxygen consumption rates and number of minutes required for a good cardio-vascular result.

  1. Walking at 3 miles per hour 7mlO2/kg/min 85 minutes
  2. Jogging at 4miles per hour 14mlO2/kg/min 35 minutes
  3. Running at 5.5 miles per hour 21mlO2/kg/min 18 minutes
  4. Running at 6.5 miles per hour 28mlO2/kg/min 12 minutes
  5. Running at 8 miles per hour 35mlO2/kg/min 8 minutes
  6. Running at 9 miles per hour 42mlO2/kg/min 6.5 minutes
  7. Running at 15 miles per hour 60mlO2/kg/min 3 minutes

The amount of oxygen consumed during any activity is determined by 4 factors:

  1. Total muscle mass involved in the activity.
  2. Range of motion of the muscles determines the percentage of muscle cells involved.
  3. Number of repetitions of muscle movement per minute.
  4. Resistance or workload worked against by the muscles.

WALKING IS VERY TIME CONSUMING

Walking involves 25% of the body's muscles and those muscles are working only through an average of 15% of their full range of motion. This means that only 25%x15%=3.75%, less than 4% of the body's total muscle cells are involved in oxygen consumption during walking. These 3.75% of all the body's muscle cells will consume more oxygen if you walk faster (or jog or run) or if you walk uphill or if you carry two 50 pound suitcases while walking. To get a high amount of oxygen consumption out of only 3.75% of your body's muscle cells those few cells would have to be extremely highly trained, such as in top athletes. To get from A to B, walking is a very energy efficient activity and therefore does not consume large amounts of oxygen. For a cardio workout you would like to engage in an energy wasting activity, an activity that needs a lot of energy to accomplish the task. Problem is that most doctors keep recommending walking as their favorite exercise prescription and they mistakenly expect their patients to follow their advice of spending 45 to 90 minutes walking. People will not do things that require a lot of time and have marginal results. If doctors were to prescribe exercise that takes only 4 minutes per day they would be vastly more successful in getting their patients to do daily exercise.

THE CLEVERLY ENGINEERED ROM MACHINE

Through clever engineering the ROM machine enables even totally out of shape people and seniors to get significant aerobic benefits from a 4 minute workout session, because the ROM engages 44% of all your muscle cells in work performance. Those 44% muscle cells are 12 times as many as the 3.75% in walking or jogging. Even if those 44% are untrained cells of a 90 year old or totally out of shape people, they will far exceed the oxygen consumption those people could otherwise reach. Highly trained athletes on our ROM machine always want to quit on our ROM machine after only 2 minutes because their highly trained muscle cells consume so much oxygen that it maxes out their cardio capacity. They are so overwhelmed that they believe that it is impossible for them to go another two minutes and finish the total 4 minutes if they are already exhausted at 2 minutes. The ROM however will automatically reduce the workload when these athletes have reached their limit cardio capacity. In fact the ROM will automatically adjust the workload every second during the 4 minute workout, exactly matching the user's ability at every moment during the workout. Its 85 pound flywheel has a centrifugal brake that applies more resistance to the flywheel the faster the flywheel spins. The exercises done on the ROM make the flywheel spin, but elderly and unconditioned people cannot make the flywheel spin very fast before they meet the braking force that matches their low level of work capacity. Highly trained athletes have enough strength to spin the flywheel much faster before they also meet the braking force that matches their own ability to perform physical work. When the highly trained athlete runs out of steam he will no longer have the strength to overcome the resistance of the centrifugal brake at high revolutions and the braking action will automatically slow him down to lower revolutions at which the centrifugal brake will reduce the resistance to exactly match the diminished strength of the then drained athlete so he can finish the 4 minutes as well. Weak people can finish the 4 minutes with much more ease than highly trained individuals but they get a much lower performance score at the end of the 4 minutes. The Rom gives you a score at the end of the 4 minutes based on the average RPM (revolutions per minute) of the flywheel during the 4 minutes. That score will gradually increase over time and the increase in the score reflects the improvement in your total physical condition. The score reflects the improvement of the condition of the combination of your cardio system, your muscle strength and your flexibility. When your total conditioning improves, the ROM 4 minute workout never gets easier. It actually gets harder the more your total condition improves because you will be able to spin the flywheel faster and the centrifugal brake makes you work against higher resistance.

THE ROM INVOLVES 12 TIMES THE MUSCLE FIBERS

The ROM involves 12 times as many muscle cells as does walking or running. Even very out of shape and weak people can get to very high oxygen consumption rates with the ROM because so very much more muscle cells are involved in oxygen metabolism while using the ROM. It engages 55% of all your muscles through an average of 80% of their full range of motion. This means that 55% of 80% or 44% of all your muscle cells are involved in consuming oxygen. That is 12 times as many muscle cells as the percentage of muscle cells involved in walking or running. On the ROM the number of repetitions and the resistance/workload are always maximum for the user's ability to perform work because the centrifugal brake on the ROMs flywheel regulates the resistance automatically to match the user's diminishing strength during the workout. The user's strength determines how fast the flywheel spins, which in turn determines the number of repetitions per minute and the resistance/workload applied by the centrifugal brake.

TRAINED ATHLETES GET A TOUGHER ROM WORKOUT

Highly trained athletes can of course spin the flywheel extremely fast and therefore in 4 minutes will get cardio benefits that far exceed those of conventional aerobic workout routines (except sprinters and competitive short distance runners who will get very high cardio benefit from their high intensity short distance activities). Trained athletes will get a much higher performance score on the ROM and they will be more exhausted than totally out of shape people who get a low performance score. The better shape people are in, the harder the 4 minute ROM workout is for them and the higher their performance score is at the end of the 4 minutes.

AEROBIC CAPACITY

A person's maximum aerobic capacity is measured as VO2max. This measurement expresses the maximum oxygen consumption a person is capable of during a maximum work demand. This measurement expresses the combined effectiveness of function of the several individual components of the body's cardio-vascular system comprising the following:

  1. The effectiveness of oxygen transfer by the lungs into the blood.
  2. The condition of the muscles that operate the lung breathing function.
  3. The effectiveness to transfer CO2 out of the blood and to exhale it. 4. The ability of the heart to pump maximum volume of blood.
  4. The condition of the blood vessels to transport the blood
  5. The effectiveness to transfer oxygen and carbohydrates from the blood to the muscles.
  6. The effectiveness of transfer of CO2 from the muscles back into the blood.

PERFORMANCE SCORE

The ROM machine gives a performance score at the end of the 4 minute workout and that score is a composite evaluation of the total work performed and therefore is a reflection of the average VO2 measurement over the 4 minute period. When the ROM score increases, it is evidence that the combination of the 7 cardiovascular performance components listed above plus muscle strength and flexibility have improved. You can see the gradual improvement of your health reflected in the gradual improvement of the ROM scores.

HOW AEROBIC CAPACITY IS MEASURED

The testing for this VO2max measurement is done in exercise physiology labs with a person hooked up with a face mask that allows the test subject to inhale a measured amount of fresh air while the exhaled air is captured and sent through a device that measures the amount of CO2 exhaled. From the amount of CO2 exhaled the maximum oxygen consumption can be calculated during the activity. The ROM does not measure VO2max, but it does create a score that reflects an increase of VO2max when the ROM-score increases. The ROM simply measures the total work performed during the 4 minute workout and expresses that into a score that reflects the ability of your body to perform work, which in turn is a direct reflection of the condition of your cardiovascular system.

THE MERITS OF H.I.T. EXERCISE

The merits of short duration and high intensity training and high oxygen consuming exercise are now more and more recognized by trainers of sports teams everywhere. Our time has not yet come with the ROM because as yet too many so called "exercise experts" are enduring with their mistaken beliefs. The ROM has been recognized in several scientific studies. One of these studies was conducted with our ROM machines at the Department of Exercise Sciences at USC (University of Southern California). USC was amazed at the unique capabilities of the ROM.

HOW IS IT POSSIBLE THAT YOU WILL BURN MORE CALORIES FROM ONLY 4 MINUTES ON THE ROM THAN FROM AN HOUR ON A TREADMILL?

TWO METHODS OF METABOLIZING CALORIES

There are two distinct methods to increase calorie consumption through exercise. The one method that is known by most people is to engage in long duration repetitive motion work. The other method is to increase muscle metabolism. A pound of muscle can metabolize an average of about 55 calories per 24 hours but it will not do that unless stimulated to do so. The muscles can be stimulated to metabolize by stretching them under resistance. The larger the range of motion of the exercise, the larger the amount of muscle cells stimulated. That is exactly what happens during Yoga or Pilates exercise, stretching under resistance through long ranges of motion. People who practice yoga on a regular basis will always be lean. If you find a fat person who professes to do yoga on a regular basis, you found a liar who is talking yoga and who does not practice it. Most yoga practitioners are also vegetarians, but that is not the reason why they are lean. There are many fat vegetarians, but those fat vegetarians do not practice yoga. Practicing yoga or Pilates requires many hours per week and therefore it is as impractical for the average public as 30 to 90 minute exercise routines. The ROM is the 4 minute solution to stretch all your muscles through long ranges of motion and in addition it increases muscle strength and it yields significant cardio benefits. Below is a comparison of calories burned during and after exercise from a 60 minute treadmill workout and from a 4 minute ROM workout:

BURNING CALORIES ON A TREADMILL

 A 180 pound person burns about 415 calories during a typical treadmill workout of 60 minutes. They burn 350 calories during the 60 minutes on the treadmill (walking at 3 to 4 miles per hour). During the treadmill workout you use 25% of the body's muscles and you use them through only 15% of their range of motion. This means that only 15% of 25% or only 3.75% of the body's muscle cells are stretched and stimulated during the exercise. These 3.75% of muscle cells that have been stimulated during a treadmill workout provide for an additional 25 calories of metabolism during the 2 hours immediately after the treadmill workout and another 40 calories for the remainder of a 24 hour period. Total calories from 60 minutes walking on a treadmill then are 350 plus 25 plus 40 calories for a total of 415 calories burned as a result of 60 minutes of walking on a treadmill.

BURNING CALORIES WITH THE ROM

The same 180 pound person will burn 465 calories as a result of 4 minutes on the ROM machine. How is it possible that more calories are burned as a result of 4 minutes on the ROM than from 60 minutes on a treadmill? During the 4 minutes on the ROM you use 55% of your muscles and you use them through an average of 80% of their range of motion (ROM stands for Range of Motion). The total percentage of muscle cells involved in the ROM exercise are 12 times as many as the 3.75% used on a treadmill because 80% of 55% of your muscles is 44% of all your muscle cells that are stimulated to an increased metabolism. During the 4 minute ROM workout the 180 pound person burns only 40 calories. But those 44% of the body's muscle cells that have been stimulated to increased metabolism will burn another 150 calories in the 2 hours after the 4 minute ROM exercise and they will burn another 275 calories in the remaining time of a 24 hour period.

MORE TOTAL METABOLISM FROM THE ROM

Note: Because of the long duration 60 minutes on a treadmill those 3.75% of muscles are stimulated to about their maximum capacity to metabolize. During the much shorter 4 minute ROM workout the 44% of muscle cells that are stimulated to a higher metabolism are stimulated to only about 50% to 75% of their maximum ability to metabolize. But since about 12 times as many muscle cells are stimulated on the ROM, the total calories burned from the 4 minute ROM exercise is higher than from an average 60 minute treadmill workout.

HOW DOES THE 4 MINUTE WORKOUT AFFECT DIABETES

Most late onset diabetes results from loss of total muscle mass all over the body. Muscles act as a reservoir to absorb and store excess glucose in the form of glycogen. When the glucose level in the blood is too high they absorb and store the excess blood-sugar. They release that glucose again when the level of glucose in the blood is too low. When people gradually lose muscle as a result of a sedentary lifestyle, that glycogen storage reservoir becomes smaller and the glucose level in the blood can no longer be properly regulated with the smaller muscle mass. This results in erratic swings of blood-sugar levels. The body now must resort to emergency measures to try to balance the blood-sugar level. The body will use the insulin made by the pancreas to help restore the blood-sugar balance. When people gradually lose muscle mass the pancreas will be called upon ever more often during the course of the day and at some point will not be able to keep up with insulin production. At that point people will need artificial insulin supplementation. OF COURSE THEY COULD START EXERCISING TO RESTORE SOME OR ALL OF THE MUSCLE MASS THEY HAVE LOST OVER THE YEARS AND GET RID OF THE PROBLEM. Rebuilding the lost muscle mass will slowly and gradually improve blood-sugar imbalance problems. In Type 1 diabetes it will help balance blood-sugar but cannot solve the pancreas deficiency and all insulin dependency. In Type 2 diabetes it will gradually decrease insulin dependency.

What about bad backs, bad necks, bad knees, injured shoulders?

Many of these problems are a result of lost muscle tissue and the lack of muscle assistance for the cartilage and joints in those areas. The lower back needs the abdominal muscles and lower back muscles as support for the lower part of the spinal column and its vertebrae and disks. When people do too little or no exercise to maintain their abdominal and lower back muscles, the disks must do all the load bearing of the upper body themselves and thereby they get squeezed flat to a point where they will create pinched nerves (the nerves run on top of and under the disks and get pinched by the disks if the disks alone have to do all the load bearing). Rebuilding the abdominal muscles and lower back muscles will give renewed support to the spine and take part of the load off the disks and will take the pressure off the pinched nerves. Neck problems are similar and can be a result of lost neck and upper back muscles. The disks in the neck get the full weight of the head to support without help of the neck and upper back muscles. Rebuilding the lost muscles will take the load off the neck disks and that takes the pressure off the pinched nerves in the neck. Bad knees are as a result of lost muscles and too much load and impact on the knee joints and cartilage. Rebuilding the muscle and tendons around the knees with exercise can help take the load off the joints and will improve alignment of the knee joints. Shoulder problems are of a similar nature as knee problems in that rebuilding of shoulder muscles and tendons will align them better and take the load off the joints. The ROM rebuilds the muscles and tendons in all areas of the body including these critical areas mentioned. When the ROM is combined with a chiropractic program removing subluxations and realigning the bones, joints or vertabra many successes can be achieved in these areas.

Scientific Studies

Clinical studies confirm that you can achieve an unprecedented aerobic workout and total fitness by mobilizing more muscle fibers in an intense full range of motion workout. The main factors influencing the effectiveness of a workout beside intensity include also extended range of motion of the exercised muscle and mobilization of greater amount of muscle fibers during the workout.

The ROM Machine is designed to attain this objective in just 4 minutes a day.

THREE SCIENTIFIC STUDIES

1. Study conducted with ROM machines at USC ( University of Southern California ) shows the effectiveness of 4 minutes and 8 minutes per day exercise on the ROM as equal to or better than 20 to 45 minutes on a treadmill 3 to 5 times per week.

"We feel that the ROM is an excellent mode of training, affecting both upper and lower body, and we would strongly recommend this device for exercise for any individual."

- Dr. Robert Girandola Interim Chairman, Department of Exercise Sciences. University of Southern California (USC) at Los Angeles, California.

2. Study conducted in Japan at the National Institute of Fitness and Sports in the Department of Physiology and Biomechanics. This study shows the superior effectiveness of high-intensity interval training versus moderate intensity endurance on VO2Max (aerobic capacity) and on anaerobic capacity.

3. Study conducted by Dr.Angelo Tremblay Ph.D. in Quebec, Canada at Laval University. This study showed the superior effectiveness of high intensity interval training (HIIT) over medium intensity endurance training (ET) for fat "burning". The high intensity. short duration test protocol of the 15 week study resulted in 9 times as much subcutaneous fat loss versus the medium intensity long duration protocol training over a period of 21 weeks.

Conclusion: High-intensity intermittent training [like the 4-Minute Gym Quick exercise program] raises total muscle metabolism to higher levels than endurance training. Even though it consumes fewer calories during the actual 4 minutes of exercise... the total calories burned during a 24-hour period is far greater than it is from 60 minutes of endurance training [such as treadmills, bikes and steppers].
