Work out like a celebrity with a SuperSlow® Workout

Why spend hours training when you can get the same strength training results in just 30 minutes? With the SuperSlow® method, also referred to as Slow Burn®, Power of 10®, or Slow Motion Strength Training, you will be done in 30 minutes and all your muscles will be exhausted, because every workout is a full body workout and you will reach complete muscle failure every single time. 

What is SuperSlow®?

SuperSlow® is a high intensity, low-force exercise strengthening method founded by Ken Hutchins in 1982.

  • It is a method that best fits the definition of complete exercise. 

  • It is beneficial for rehabilitation, strength, weight loss, and general exercise. 

  • This is a very effective way of strength training in a minimum of time.

  • This can be done with free weights, body weight, human resistance or resistance bands. 

  • It is an intense 30 minutes workout of strength training. 

  • No Cardio is done during a SuperSlow® session.

 

SuperSlow® is a very effective and popular technique used these days. SuperSlow® can build 50% more muscle in 10 weeks than regular weightlifting. The idea of SuperSlow® is to bring the muscles to exhaustion. 

SuperSlow® is a total body workout.

Ken Hutchins (SuperSlow® founder) says: "We train your muscles by putting a weight load on them so that the muscle goes from the fresh strength that you start with to where, after several reps, it is reduced to the point where you can't move the weight. When done properly the muscles fail usually within two or three minutes. The super-slow method targets the body's major muscles, called skeletal muscles. The skeletal muscles are the body's engine. They produce more heat, consume more calories, and receive more blood flow than any of the body's other muscles."

A SuperSlow® workout offers a variety of rewards, according to Hutchins. Slower is safer. Most injuries are the result of poor form and forceful movements.

SuperSlow® exercise will get you in great shape, but it won't get you hurt in the process.

Here is some helpful information before we start our first workout:

  • Each exercise has 1 set of 6 to 8 reps and between 2 and 3 minutes. We will do about 7-8 exercises during every workout and I will rotate between 3 different workouts each time you train with me. Each workout will target all muscle groups, so you will have a full body workout each and every time. Weights are slowly raised in 10 seconds and lowered in 10 seconds non-stop until the targeted muscles reach total momentary fatigue. So 10 seconds positive and 10 seconds negative. Once you come to a complete stop, because your muscles are completely exhausted, I will ask you to hold the weights for an extra few seconds and than you will come out of the exercise very slowly. That is why and how you will see results faster than the traditional way of strength training.

  • Now you need to know how you should breath during a workout. This method requires a different breathing technique then other weight training methods. It isn't just 1 inhale on the negative and 1 exhale on the positive, but you need to breath non-stop through your mouth with your mouth slightly opened at all times. Then when it gets harder to push the weights, you will change into fast, short and shallow breathing.
