What is Exercise?

May 18, 2017

If you ask ten people the question “what is exercise?” you will get ten different answers. Most people haven’t given it much thought and end up answering without specificity and accuracy. Why is this important? Because if you don’t know what true exercise is, how will you achieve it?

 

Fortunately, Ken Hutchins has devoted his career to formulating a definition for exercise. He is the man who developed and popularized what some call the “super slow” technique for high intensity strength training—the method I use in my studio.

 

To paraphrase Ken Hutchins:

 

Exercise is a process done in a controlled environment during which the body performs safe but demanding work, in a minimum amount of time, loading muscular structures enough to cause an adaptive response from the body. This response includes cleanup, repair, and growth of muscle, blood vessel, and cell structures in the body in response to the stress of high intensity muscular loading.

 

Ok. There you have it. And that’s what I do in my studio (the “controlled environment”). Want to know more? Read Ken’s article here:
