How to Get the Most Out of Strength Stack 52

When you first open the stack, review each card, and make sure you know how to perform the exercises, then you can play games more efficiently and effectively.

There are many effective ways to use Strength Stack 52 to get a great full body workout. The most effective use of Strength Stack 52 is to take advantage of nano-sport periodization. Numerous studies show that several small workouts throughout the day, as opposed to one long workout, are more effective for building muscle and burning fat.  Combine that with the power of a fun challenge, and you have nano-sport periodization.

Nano= Small or mini

Sport=Playing a game with a challenging component

Periodization=Dividing exercises into segments of different intensities

To incorporate nano-sport periodization into your Strength Stack 52, make a schedule to play 2-3 card games per day. You can challenge yourself, co-workers, friends and family. Using Strength Stack 52 and incorporating nano-sport periodization, you will find you have more energy, more strength, less body fat, better attention to detail, increased performance at work and more. Eating a balanced diet will only increase these benefits.
