Since the beginning of P.volve, so many of our clients have asked for more intense, faster workouts. You’ve been looking for more ways to move at a quicker pace in each movement, speed up your routines and sweat more than in the average P.volve workout. But how can it be done safely, effectively and still within the umbrella of our method? Introducing: p.sweat.
P.sweat is your next step in P.volve, and your body’s next challenge. There’s a lot to understand to prepare for the series of faster-paced workouts—read on to learn more:
P.sweat is a new type of P.volve—one that incorporates quicker movements and less breaks in between sets to increase your heart rate and get you sweating more. Think of it as your typical P.volve workout, but with the thermometer turned up a notch. Of course, form is still the most important part of the method, so every movement (no matter how intense) will still be low-impact, safe and results-driven.
P.sweat is perfect for someone who’s been doing P.volve for about a month, and looking for new ways to add more intensity to their workouts. The series works as a progression from our traditional p.sculpt workouts. The progression happens in terms of the faster pace, added repetitions and more difficult blocks of work that increase every muscle's time under tension. Each workout in the series is a progression on itself, too, to keep challenging the body throughout the series.
Each p.sweat video is 15-25 minutes long, which is ample amount of time to safely increase your heart rate without completely wiping yourself out for the rest of the week. To start, we’ll have four p.sweat videos on the streaming platform. We recommend first trying them as a consecutive series, following one per day for four days. Then, after getting acclimated to each, you can do your favorites to incorporate the faster pace into your regular weekly routine.
The p.sweat class structure will have fewer breaks and more repetitions per move—two things that will provide more of a burn throughout the whole workout. We typically do 8 reps because we don’t want to lose form but still want the muscles to get worked without fatiguing. Given that p.sweat is an advanced program, we urge users to already have a foundation of the P.volve method in place in order to handle more reps without breaking form.
Each workout will also incorporate both standing and moves on the mat. For example, you can expect a block of work standing followed immediately by a longer plank series on the floor.
The pace of each workout isn't just fast for the sake of being fast. Instead, the faster pace lets you learn to control the speed of your movements more compared to other high intensity. With the help of equipment, too, you're able to keep the pace consistent without adding extra momentum to every move.
