Frequently Asked Questions
How many days per week must I train?
We advocate a minimum of three days per week of training with our program. Optimal results may be achieved with four to five days per week of training, though days four and five will look significantly different than your three main days. High Speed Fitness details training plans for three days per week around your goals. If your goal is to lose weight/inches, you may wish to create a greater caloric deficit by training more frequently. The additional days can be optimized by running, swimming, biking, and/or yoga.
What program should I begin with if I have not been working out regularly?
_If you have not been working out regularly (at least three times per week for 30 minutes or more for the past month), we recommend the first set of goals - Endurance, Strength, Fat Loss - in order to build the greatest foundation to specialize in others performance goals in the following months.
I want to lose inches around my waist. What program should I choose?
All of our programs are performance based and can contribute to inches lost if your training is met with sound nutrition. Please understand that a pound of fat is spatially larger than a pound of muscle. It is like comparing a pound of feathers and a pound of bricks. They both weigh a pound, but the difference in size is significant. Additionally, a pound of muscle burns more calories at rest than a pound of fat. Those points considered, you may see a decrease in inches around your waist from an increase in lean body mass and/or a decrease in body fat.
