Quality vs Quantity?
Recently, I read a great article describing the importance of different intensities of training and why it is possible to still achieve progress without having to push yourself to the limits every time you exercise. Over the last few years, I have noticed a big trend in high-intensity exercise classes or groups that promise reducing body fat, losing and gaining weight over what seems to be very short time periods. I began to wonder how do people who have not exercised formally partake in these high-intensity exercise classes without risk of injury?
