ACSM's 2018 International Health & Fitness Summit Video CEC: Featured Lecture-The Case for Why Current Exercise Prescriptions...

By Marc Hamilton

There is arguably nothing more prized for promoting many aspects of health and wellness than a large rise in metabolic rate throughout most of the day. How do you best do this, regardless of age and fitness? This talk will explain a few of the most important principles (but almost always misunderstood) about muscle physiology. You will learn in an easy to understand way (even with a live demonstration) for how to optimize muscle contractions for raising metabolic rate throughout the workday and at home when not at the gym. Learn why the current exercise prescriptions (no matter how intense), nor something like the simplistic suggestion to “just stand more”, are missing the mark. One key concept that you will be able to better explain to your clients is that there is nothing you can do for yourself that comes close to creating the opportunity for the many healthy and potent metabolic responses caused by acute (immediate) skeletal muscle contractile activity performed correctly.
