What Is The Exercise Pyramid?

Resistance training, interval training, sprinting and other forms of high intensity exercise are great for improving muscular strength, cardiovascular fitness and body shape but fail to counteract the negative health impacts of an otherwise sedentary lifestyle. Short bursts of high intensity exercise should always be built upon a broad foundation of easy, energising movement.

Performance Exercise – Low frequency, high intensity exercise such as resistance circuits and interval training which help improve muscular strength, cardio fitness and body shape.

Energising Movement – High frequency, low intensity exercise such as walking, stretching and playing which help keep the body fresh, energised and healthy.
