Squat Everyday – 150804

Right, Sean?  Squat everyday, buddy!


How do we change the body?

We change it by what we do and what we’re telling the hormones to do.

By doing compound movements (squats, lunges, deadlifts, cleans, snatches, etc.), and doing them relatively heavy, we are telling the right muscle building and fat burning hormones to kick into gear!

By keeping things high intensity and shorter bursts (could be HIIT, could be short AMRAP’s, whatever), we elicit the same type of hormonal response from the body.

Now, since the body changes based on what the hormones are telling it to do, if you do these types of workouts and the body releases all those good hormones, you’ll get all these good types of responses.

There are, of course, exceptions to the rule, but that’ll be for a different day!
