Nestlé’s PowerBar brand has developed a nine-week version of its online training and nutrition plans, already used by up to 12,000 people each month.
The exercise plans focus on efficient and effective workouts, building strength throughout each week. Undulated training is a way of building strength by varying repetitions of individual exercises on a regular basis, instead of doing the same number of repetitions each time.
“On Monday you might do ten repetitions, on Wednesday six, and on Friday three, so that your muscles constantly receive new stimuli,” said Eric Zaltas, Global Head of Research and Development for Nestlé Performance Nutrition.
“Everyone is looking for ways to be more efficient - we are trying to help people who already lead an active lifestyle to get better results in the same amount of time.”
The online plan also recommends a healthy eating regmine, complemented by PowerBar shakes, which are available to buy at selected gyms.
While the programme is predominantly aimed at men, a female version is currently being trialled in Germany.
