Peak 8 for Max Performance

Peak 8 Interval Training involves exercising and reaching your anaerobic threshold. Anaerobic Threshold defines the upper limit of exercise intensity that can be sustained aerobically. The anaerobic threshold is attained during the more intense exercise we do.

What Makes Peak 8 Work So Well?

When you work fast twitch fiber and your heart muscle anaerobically, your body releases exercise induced growth hormones (HGH). HGH is a foundational, biochemical underpinning that facilitates the body’s natural anabolic processes causing your strength and other training to prosper while effectively burning calories. The best part is, it stays in your body for two hours after work is performed, going directly after body fat.

When you work your heart anaerobically and aerobically, you get great endurance.  A downfall is that endurance comes and goes in as little as two weeks. You can increase your endurance in a short amount of time, but you can also lose it pretty quickly.

Important To Know… 

It is important that your pace is consistent from start to finish.  Peak 8 training calls for 8 Rounds, but this may be less depending on your fitness level, which is ok! You will gain all of the benefits doing the number of intervals your body can handle. For some people this means they begin with just 1 or 2 intervals and working their way up gradually.
