Some programs think that by constantly changing the workout on you, it's more effective- and more fun. They sell the idea that the body will stop improving if it has a chance to adapt to a workout. That's only true, if you're doing the same workout day in and day out without ever changing the time, intensity and other variables. (And, why would you do that?) As for more fun… is it more fun to do something completely different every workout, never truly getting enough practice to make noticeable improvements in your movement or other useful skills- or would it be more fun to have just enough variety in your workout to keep things interesting- but to work your skillets enough to make VERY noticeable improvements while getting the results you want? RIGHT! We think it’s a simple concept too- so much so that we’re not sure why everyone is still trying to sell you on “constantly changing things up”… believe it or not, the human body actually needs time to adapt to different stimuli - and since it’s adaptation that’s bringing about the results and change that we can SEE and FEEL, why would you cut yourself short of this? Let’s be honest- in addition to RESULTS that you want, it’s seeing, feeling and experiencing yourself IMPROVE from the time you’ve invested that’s REALLY FUN.
So what do we think a “smart” training program should consist of? It should not only produces results… surprisingly, that’s the easy part of the puzzle - it should MAKE YOU BETTER by:
- Improving the quality of your movement
- Help prevent future injuries, not create them
- Dissipate everyday aches and pains
- Improve your quality of life
Progression- getting better, feeling better, looking better… is fun. Accomplishing goals- shedding belly fat, getting stronger, being in better shape, having more energy, even feeling sexier in your own skin… is fun. Feeling confident in yourself- in your abilities, in your appearance, your hard work, your investing in yourself… that’s real fun! If you agree, click on the "Get Started" link in the menu above!
