If you want to lose fat, “explosive exercise” will help you tap into your high-threshold muscle fibers, which have the biggest impact on your metabolism. These muscle fibers need you to do something very fast or lift something very heavy to wake up. Otherwise, they’re dormant.
If you want to age more gracefully, it’s important to remember that no one falls down slowly. Falling is fast, and if you can react and regain your balance quickly, then you’re much more likely to stay on your feet or fall with less impact.
