PHA’s – Peripheral Heart Action is a training style that has been clinically proven in control group studies to be the most effective form of strength training for weight loss while still effectively building and toning muscles.

A PHA circuit takes two upper-body and two lower-body exercises and alternates thru all four exercises in a mini-circuit. This is scientifically and logically the most effective way to work out because it maximizes blood flow training with weights.

The secret behind PHA’s success is in the blood flow. A muscle that is being stimulated requires blood to contract, but while that muscle is resting and recovery energy is being delivered and restocked, you can work another muscle, which keeps your heart rate up.
