Today I want to lend my professional opinion and advice.
Let's tackle the topic of training - not just working out.
At first glance, most will see them as identical, but a closer look, we can see a big difference and why a distinction is necessary. My definition, teaching a person a particular fitness skill or related behavior through practice and instruction over a while constitutes training.
These skills do not have to be solely focused on aesthetics. For example, daily self-care that leads to the improvement in the efficiency of life fall under this umbrella of skills. Lifestyle changes are necessary for training to be effective. These skills should be continuously habituated and practiced, similar to when many of us learn in school. In school, when it came to midterms and finals, some would wait to study at the last minute and typically would not yield the same results or house the same confidence that the prepared student got. Thus, learning skills to prepare your body for the examination of life is important. This is true even when your life revolves around winning championships or merely winning the day - it is crucial.
Those that have a particular end goal , such as weight gain or weight loss at hand, are the perfect candidate for programmed fitness training. I've seen many people, and every individual is unique, yet it is vital to know that we all can benefit from intently working out. Most think that the top trainee goals is to "lose weight"; however, this is a big misconception as some of the best athletes in the world can care less about how their bodies look as long as it does not affect play. Goals sometimes are very vague; however, being able to channel the real reason for training will determine if it is something a person can benefit from in the long run. Other common goals/benefits are as follows:
-Improving the quality of life
-Increase memory capacity
-Increase cardiovascular output
-Decrease the risk of cardiovascular disease
An effective program typically starts from the inside and works its way out. What exactly does this mean? When we take the step to change habits, behaviors, and skills, first, we must change mentally. We must recognize that if we are not mentally prepared for the journey, we are about to endure, we will inherently prolong our process. If you do this, many changes will occur, but surprisingly, the mirrors' looks are only a by-product of the harder behavioral changes. We at least know one person who kills workouts, or at least say they do, but find it also equally hard to lose the weight. To help, scenarios such as this, training correctly with a plan is the accountability necessary to link the rest of the pillars of fitness together - food/diet, working out, supplementation (in regards to switching out lower nutrient-rich sources for those higher).
Often most people combine fitness into a big disfunction. By not wanting to live a healthy, wholesome lifestyle - maintaining mobility/locomotion and achieving hormonal homeostasis, your habits will become costly that you will pay for with your wallet and body. Do the right thing and #BeExceptional.
