Behind the Scenes

A Full Brain

After burning off some energy in the pool, I cleaned up and headed to Wayne Westcott‘s session on strength exercise in wellness and chronic disease prevention. Boy, oh boy, was it good. Wayne filled the entire 75 minutes with so much information it was coming out of my ears (thank goodness he had printouts!). Wayne detailed a number of studies proving the enormous benefits of circuit strength training.

Probably the most interesting thing I took out of the seminar was proof that when it comes to health benefits and gains in muscle mass, two sessions is equivalent to three. As someone who sometimes gets bored in the weight room, this is great news! --Jennipher
