I helped the fam move last week and I have to tell you, I felt strong. Sometimes we get distracted by the gym and lose focus on why we are in the gym in the first place. For most people it is so we can be healthy and function efficiently outside the gym in the real world. I was lifting heavy boxes, squatting, deadlifting and push pressing all day long. I just felt rock solid and it built my confidence in why I work out. I work out so I can do shit. Years ago I used to run all day long and I thought I was fit. Now I can still run all day long if needed but am much stronger and much more explosive. It's all thanks to lifting heavy weights, climbing movements and sprinting/jumping. I can do more work now. I am a more functional human. People need to understand that cardiovascular fitness is only one piece of the puzzle. You need stamina, strength, balance, flexibility, power, speed, coordination, agility and accuracy as well. And these aspects need to be trained. All day long I see clients at my gym donig 45 minutes of cardio and they have a tire around their belly and have a hard time jumping onto a 12" box. Gone are the days of constant cardio and low fat diets. Now is the time of functional movement, smart training and ancestral/unprocessed foods.
Who would you pick to help you move your couch?
