Resistance Exercise Conference logoThis episode is brought to you by ARXFit.comARX are the most innovative, efficient and effective all-in-one exercise machines I have ever seen. I was really impressed with my ARX workout. The intensity and adaptive resistance were unlike anything I’ve ever experienced. I love how the machine enables you to increase the negative load to fatigue target muscles more quickly and I love how the workouts are effortlessly quantified. The software tracks maximum force output, rate of work, total amount of work done and more in front of you on-screen, allowing you to compete with your pervious performance, to give you and your clients real-time motivation. As well as being utilised by many HIT trainers to deliver highly effective and efficient workouts to their clients, ARX comes highly recommended by world-class trainers and brands including Bulletproof, Tony Robbins, and Ben Greenfield Fitness. To find out more about ARX and get $1,000 OFF software licensing fees, please go to ARXfit.com and mention Corporate Warrior in the how did you hear about us field.

  • Andrew May

    Great episode again. I was particularly interested in the intensity threshold aspect discussed along with the mechanistic sides of different modalities. The part about learning new techniques being good for the brain has got me thinking too (pun intended).

    • Andrew May

      The part about movement resonated for me anecdotally too, looking at my extended family ageing. Especially as I’ve been sat down for probaly 6 hours today…..

      • “Infrequent strength training / frequent movement” – Skyler Tanner 😉

    • Thank you Andrew. Pleased you enjoyed it.
