Maximum Interval Training

Performance-based high-intensity training programs like P90X and Insanity have exploded in popularity over the past few years, and the Maximum Interval Training continuing education course builds on that concept—intense exercise periods combined with brief bouts of recovery—with a range of training modalities to deliver a more effective muscle-building program. 

For each of the 147 exercises presented in the text Maximum Interval Training, you’ll find step-by-step instructions, expert advice, and photo depictions. These exercises keep the body guessing while working every muscle to the max, which will help your clients blast through training plateaus. But rest assured that it won’t be more of the same. You’ll test your clients’ limits with a regimen of sprints, medicine balls, heavy ropes, kettlebells, sandbags, body-weight exercises, and suspension training. 10 CFES CECs: To find out more click here.
