Description: If you thought getting a great workout could only be exclusively done at a gym or running on a treadmill, you might be surprised just how much you can do with in a space now bigger than your dorm lounge with a towel and water bottle at your side. Maximum Interval Training is an exercise system that uses your own body as the equipment. The object is not to confuse your muscles or to gain an edge in competition but to arrive at and strengthen your own natural physical abilities. The four main categories of exercise will revolve around 1) explosive bursts of movements called plyometrics, 2) core strengthening, 3) cardio, and of course 4) muscle cool-downs through stretching. Students will be invited to document their progress in a personal log intended to record the specific number of repetitions of a certain exercise in a prescribed period of time. Beating personal records can be fun to try by pushing yourself to your limit and then seeing if you have more. The positive effects of Maximum Interval Training are best achieved through consistency and commitment. Bring your towel, have your water bottle handy and expect to get sweaty. The first meeting will be a verbal orientation to the program providing suggestions and guidelines for the class. Those with respiratory difficulties are discouraged from directly participating but are welcomed to observe and learn each exercise in a manor that will not agitate any preexisting medical conditions. Will meet in the Robert Crown Center Gym. 5-College students will be graded pass/fail.
