Review On Old School New Body By Steve & Becky Holman

Old School New Body is a fitness and Bodyshaping program for men and women of all ages developed by Steve Holman and Becky Holman.

The secret contained in the system is the F4X workout methods which stand for Focus 4 exercise.  These 4 exercises are Squat, Incline Press, Bent Over Row, and Upright row.

F4X system calls for moderate poundage’s for less joint stress and relies on high muscles fatigue for intensity- which means short rest between sets.

For instance, let’s say, you’re doing curls and you pick a weight with which can go about 15 repetitions.  

But instead, you do only 10. You rest for 30 to 35 seconds then do 10 more with the same weight. And go on until you finished the specified number of sets or until you can’t do another.

The number of exercises or F4X workout plan endorsed in this program differs depending on the experiences and goals, comprising of 10 minutes per body part with the total workouts ranging from 30 to 45 minutes.

The first two weeks of the program primarily focuses on the short, brief and high-intensity workout believing that the rapid fat loss is accomplished through exercise intensity, not duration.

The F4X system mostly aimed to target the majority of muscle fiber to develop a stronger force.

The muscles fibers directed by Steve Holman F4X have two main constituents-Myofibrils and Sarcoplasm.

The myofibrils are a muscles fibril, formed by numerous actin and myosin filaments. It is like a rope gripping and pulling across one another. There are hundreds of myofibrils in each muscles fiber.

And the sarcoplasm’s is the fluid surrounding the myofibrils, which contains the mitochondrial where fat is burned, which is very important for burning fat and staying lean.

The Old School New Body includes high-intensity workouts and provides varied solutions depending on the need for your fitness and health goals.  

It claimed that workouts of this program will not only help you shed your extra pounds but also helps you build your muscles, give you perfect body fitness and it enhance your cardiovascular system simultaneously.

In fact, weight lifting is an activity associated with reversing the aging process at a gene level.  To be precise, the objective of this system is segmented into three phases, Weight-loss, Shape, and Build.

Our goal is to show you the simplest, the most efficient, safest way for you to do… it does not take a lot of suffering or time and the results are immense. The key to overriding the decaying code is daily exercises, emotional commitment, reasonable nutrition and a real engagement with living-  Steve Holman
