Isometric exercises pullup

In my post about Gymnastics Strength Training, I touched on the idea of tempo. We feel this aspect of training often goes unnoticed, and deserves to be highlighted in more depth.

It’s easy to add more weight to a compound movement, which is an objective means of measuring absolute strength gain, and demonstrating progress.

Bodyweight Cluster Set Training

In bodyweight training, you will often see long, awe-inspiring sets that make you fatigued after having watched them.

One of the benefits of training without weights includes the ability to pump out high volumes of basic exercises.

Sleep-deprivation-physical

We’ve all experienced sleep deprivation. The feeling of lethargy, emotional heaviness and inability to concentrate has a direct correlation with mental and physical ineptitude.

Put simply, we’re not performing as well as we know we can and it can be incredibly disheartening. You may even begin to question your ability to complete tasks to a high standard which is antithetical to your success at work and in business.

FitnessFAQs Pushing through pain is not a badge of honor

We’ve all heard the adage “no pain no gain”, especially by overly keen trainers trying to push their clients beyond the point of exhaustion.

I get it, it’s necessary to blast through the confides of your comfort zone as you strive to become the biggest, fastest and/or strongest person in your gym, fitness class or social training group.

However, I would like to explain to you the importance of knowing how to differentiate between discomfort and pain.

We’re now nearly two months into 2017. It’s flown by fast, hey?

For some, this time has been a period to set lofty goals and expectations for the next 12 months. For others, a direction has already been set long ago, nullifying the significance of the first day of a new calendar year.

With that being said, I’d like to take this opportunity to discuss a timely topic, one which should receive the same amount of attention at any time of the year.

Longevity.

Chronic-Cardio

The chronic cardio bug can bite any of us.

You started out satisfying that innocent urge to become more active. Over time, it’s transformed into a ritual involving the same route (or treadmill), on the same days, at the same times.

Chronic cardio, or the act of doing too much endurance training over time, was brought up by Mark Sisson on the Joe Rogan Experience #752.

Lose fat traveling

For many, prolonged bouts of travel signify an inevitable regression in fitness and body composition. This fear may even be to the extent of avoiding travel altogether, as to preserve one’s hard-earned gains.

Dream Body Marketing Myth

The “dream bodyis an illusion that we’ll never achieve.

This represents an abstract idea.

Abstract will never be reached because it’s not quantifiable.

Personal Trainer

Finding a Personal Trainer is an often a first step for many wanting to begin their physical improvement journey, or to make sense of all the gym equipment at a nearby training facility.

We now live in a world where a “following” can be bought, and the six-pack physique on show is almost more likely to be a product of fabrication rather than hours of hard training and a balanced diet. If you’re not playing devil’s advocate and questioning the legitimacy of what’s around, you’re doing yourself a disservice.
