27 Jan Blast Fat With The Peripheral Heart Action System
Circuit training is a common way to train for fat loss and general conditioning. With the Peripheral Heart Action system, we take circuit training to the next level with a unique program design twist – keep reading to learn all the details about this super efficient training system!
I originally discovered the PHA system in the National Academy of Sport Medicine personal training text – but I believe it was originally developed by Dr. Aurthur Steinhaus. The goal of PHA training is to keep the blood flowing through the body through out the entire workout. Upper body and lower body exercises are alternated throughout the session, which reduces the build up of lactic acid, and enables the trainee, in theory, to increase total work output and burn maximum calories in minimum time.
So here’s a sample PHA workout for you to try:
- Dumbbell Squats
- Dumbbell Floor Presses
- Dumbbell Lunges
- Dumbbell Bent Over Rows
To complete the circuit, you’ll do ten reps of each exercise back-to-back – make sure you don’t rest in between exercises. When you’ve completed all four exercises, then you can rest for about :30 or so – and repeat the circuit again two to four more times for a total of three to five rounds.
In conclusion, the Peripheral Heart Action System is a great way to structure your circuits for maximum fat loss in minimum time. The workout above is a great start, and is a great example of how you would structure a PHA routine. Incorporate the PHA workout system into your workouts today for improved conditioning and increased fat loss results!!
