Coles Notes version:
- Activate fast-twitch muscles (do HIIT workouts)
- Incorporate light strength training
I currently do distance running, on a nice safe treadmill with adjustable incline. During my 'runs' i do sprints where i am running at a fair clip, but I wouldn't characterize it as an explosive burst.
I finally got my punching/kicking bag. I am just waiting for the gloves. This will definitely be several examples of explosive movements. It has been over 10 years since i last used a bag, but it is an absolutely excellent way to fight stress, get extreme cardio and get strength, and it is essentially a High Intensity Interval type of workout - no question.
So I am not sure about the research here, but i got this covered.
I think it is engaging the fight in our fight vs. fight impulse, and therefore allowing you to act physically without that conflict going on in the brain.
not to mention the burst activity described above, the toning for your muscles, and the clearing of your skin, flushing of the sweating. expanding your thermo-neutral zone.
Just don't break your wrist on the first day!
exercise = good
break wrist = bad
