I think it is important, not to just tell you the science of training, but how to actually bring it to life in your workouts. That is what I am constantly doing myself. Trying to find out how to make better workouts I think it a goal of all of ours, but that means delving into understanding how the body works and then figuring out how do we make it real in our workouts.
Last week I talked about some big game changing ideas after being at the Perform Better Chicago Summit. If you missed it, you will definitely want to check it out HERE. The cliff notes are this….
We are beginning to really appreciate that real functional fitness is about challenging posture in a variety of ways. Why is this important? Trying to challenge posture is how we truly get real world core strength and stability. In fact, by working posture in this manner we develop strength that carries over to other things in our life better than just about anything else.
So, we can accomplish this goal by making the body resist forces such as we do in being in a plank, but also taking this concept to what we do standing. When you apply this concept we start to look at how load can apply compression which activates more muscles and makes you stronger in ways you may have never imagined.
Here is one more cool benefit, such training not only makes you more resilient to injury and stronger, but spikes your metabolism like the most intense forms of training! Which when you think about it is super cool. The fact we can train our conditioning in such a manner, but instead of put our bodies through some serious pounding, we can actually make them healthier.
