4Q Metabolic Model 03:56
2 Continuums make up the 4Q Metabolic Model:
Vertical Axis explores the intensity of exercise and is described as either High Intensity or Sub-threshold Intensity.
Horizontal Axis explores the Work:Rest ratio which is described as either Steady State (AKA continuous exercise) or Interval training.
The combination of these continuums creates 4 unique styles of Metabolic Conditioning which allow us to program both variable, yet specific outcomes for health and human performance.
We’ll dive into the specificity of these continuums in the next lessons.
