12 minutes per week (book)
Scientific proof of the unbeatable efficiency of high-intensity cratering training
A scientifically based program for strength and muscle
building Muscle building has never been easier and faster than with this revolutionary program, which provides only one training session per week. Sports scientist Dr Doug McGuff and strength training expert John Little have developed a groundbreaking new concept in which 12 minutes of strength training once a week is enough to achieve maximum muscle and strength gain. The user goes to his limits and then gives the muscles enough rest so that they can rebuild themselves. The effectiveness of this high-intensity, low-frequency strength training (HIT) has been proven by numerous clinical studies.
This book explains in detail what happens at the cellular level when the muscle is stressed and what happens during the resting phase when the muscle regenerates. The reader learns what importance modern science attaches to strength training for maintaining our health, and how this knowledge can be consistently applied. And last but not least, it turns upside down what even experienced trainers thought they knew about the training.
