My girl just tried this new place here in L.A. I went to their website to check it out. The following is part of their Mission Statement:
Our classes switch from an Aerobic Cardiovascular exercise to an Anaerobic Resistance exercise every 60 Seconds, keeping the body from choosing the energy expenditure system it?s going to use.
This forces the body into a state of confusion, that we call the Zig Zag Theory. This activity of switching back and forth from an aerobic cardiovascular system to an anaerobic system is what increases the fat expenditure of the body by more than 500%.
No other program out there today goes from an aerobic activity to an anaerobic activity, back and forth every 60 seconds or less.
Has anyone ever heard of this “Zig Zag Theory”? I’m dubious of these claims but my girl wants to know if any of this is legit training science or just fluff. Comments? Thanks.
