Hate having to choose between resisted weight training and bodyweight training? The good news is, you no longer have to. Contrast training is a simple training concept which combines one set of a heavy, resisted exercise with an explosive, unresisted bodyweight exercise. In between each set, there’s a period of recovery, allowing the muscles to grow. The benefits? Your body quickly builds up strength and explosive power and your neuromuscular efficiency is increased, making you stronger, faster and more powerful.
