Resistance training is the superior exercise regimen for long-lasting health. Increasing muscle mass will ensure you have physical and metal prowess now and into your later years. Muscle cells have the highest mitochondrial count of any cell in the body. Mitochondria produce energy that your body uses for body movement and repair. Superhuman University builds the fitness portion around resistance training such as weightlifting, resistance bands and body weight exercises.
The right amount of cardiovascular training is also extremely important. Cardio is most thought of as running and biking. Although these exercises can be cathartic, they are not a superior method for cardio function. Short burst of high intensity training will strengthen the heart and lungs. Excessive amounts of cardio can lead to increases in cortisol and adrenaline that can affect sleep cycles as well as hinder muscle growth and retention. The cardio part of this ring will include short running intervals, HIIT and jump rope.
