A SHORT HISTORY
Peripheral Heart Action (PHA) training was developed in the 1940s by Dr. Arthur Steinhaus, Professor of Physiology at George Williams College in the United States, as a form of resistance training. It was used and popularised in the weightlifting community in the 1960s by legendary bodybuilder Bob Gajda, who won the 1966 Mr. America competition.
A 2015 study in the European Journal of Applied Physiology evaluated the effects of PHA training compared with high-intensity interval training (HIIT) with regard to changes in physical fitness. The results showed that PHA training increased muscular strength and maximum oxygen consumption.
PHA training is not just for weightlifting. It can also be applied to bodyweight programs like ours.
