Fitness and Training

If done correctly, training can be one of the single best things you can do for your health.

I love training, but that’s me. I can’t think of too many people or resources that say that exercise (within reason) is not good for you.

Exercise has been shown to reduce something called all-cause mortality, or the likelihood that you will die from any disease! It’s hard to argue or make an excuse not to exercise. Unfortunately, I see so many people who go to the gym and never get any results. Don’t get me wrong, something is better than nothing, but if you want to improve your health, the way you look or perform, you need to learn how to effectively exercise.

Like nutrition, trends come and go, but basic principles are pretty constant and hard to refute:

  • Exercise intensity needs to get to a certain level to build muscle, lose fat or both.
  • Resistance exercise (weight training) can benefit pretty much everyone.
  • Shorter intervals of higher intensity cardiovascular exercise can stimulate fat loss and muscle gains more effectively than longer intervals of lower intensity exercise.

The body is made to move.

If we don’t move, unhealthy things happen. There are three primary medical problems which impede or limit exercise capacity:

  • Orthopedic Conditions (Arthritis, etc.)
  • Cardiac Disease
  • Neurologic Problems (Stroke, Nerve Injury)

Orthopedic limitations in particular have been the focus of my work and lots of regenerative medical models. If our joints will not let us exercise, it’s going to be hard to be healthy and functional.
