Each person has their favorites when it comes to moving the body but the truth is that there are also tendencies that show the most chosen or what comes with strength. The American College of Sports Medicine has been conducting, for the past 12 years, a survey of professionals in more than 40 countries (our own included) about what will be furious during the coming year.
We tell you about the top positions in the ranking:
1. HIGH INTENSITY INTERVAL TRAINING (HIIT)
These are short bursts of high intensity exercise followed by a short rest or recovery period. They usually last less than 30 minutes (although they can last much longer). By 2014, the HIIT had also been number one.
The cons: many respondents said that clients liked this type of program for a short time and then looked for something else. On the other hand, they spoke of a high injury rate.
2. GROUP TRAINING
Group exercise instructors teach, lead and motivate people through their classes that work very well because they are motivating and also a meeting place. There are many types of classes here: from spinning to dancing sessions.
3. WEARABLE OR PORTABLE TECHNOLOGY
Trainers are increasingly using smart clocks, heart rate indicators, GPS tracking devices and smart glasses to make their routine more efficient and to keep track of what they do. It is unimaginable how portable technology will grow in the coming years.
4. WEIGHT TRAINING
Although a couple of years ago it wasn’t as famous, from 2013 onwards weight training became a popular trend. The body’s own weight used to be used for training, but now for typical weight training circuits minimal equipment is used, which makes it a very economical way to exercise effectively. In addition, the myth that weights “inflate” was banished.
5. STRENGTH TRAINING
In this case, weights are used exclusively to gain strength. Although he fell a couple of places in the ranking, this option was always among the top places. What also changed is that before I was only elected by young men. It is now also adopted by women, the elderly and chronically ill people who focus on gaining or improving their strength. It is also widely used in cardiovascular or pulmonary rehabilitation programs.
