Health vs Fitness

Todays blog post literally copy and pasting off an old lecture so y’all don’t think I’m nuts when I tell you that health and fitness are NOT the same thing.⠀

-“Health and wellness are factors of disease free living with positive controls over physiological measures.”⠀
-“Fitness is defined by quantifiable measures of physical components broken down into health and performance related components.”⠀

“A person can be healthy, but not fit in the same way a person can score well in fitness testing and not be as healthy as a person with lower scores in the same test.”

Exercise and Mental Health

Statistics are beginning to suggest that 10% of adults are affected by depression and 15% are affective by anxiety disorders. Research has demonstrated that exercise allows us to improve our moods, self-esteem, and self-efficacy, which all contributes to reduced risk of depression/anxiety. Exercise frequency having the greatest impact on reducing that risk because the greater the frequency the more time spent in the altered mental state.⠀

What the heck is Metabolic Syndrome?

Have you ever heard the doctor tell you that you have metabolic syndrome or you are at risk to developing it, but you have no idea what is means? Well, you get classified as having metabolic syndrome if you meet one or more of the following criteria⠀
1. Males with body fat greater than 25% and Females with body fat greater than 32%⠀
2. a Waist circumference greater than 102CM (men) and greater than 88CM (women)⠀

Exercise & Atherosclerosis

What is atherosclerosis and how does exercise help manage it?⠀
Put simply, atherosclerosis happens when too much plaque builds up in the walls of your arteries. This leads to heart attacks, which I doubt anyone wants to ever experience.⠀

While exercise does not directly reverse atherosclerosis, properly prescribed programming does manage this disease. How? ⠀
-Aerobic exercise results in the reduction of blood pressure and circulating LDL⠀
-Consistent exercise lowers the effect of platelet adhesion and positively influences cytokine dynamics (helps protects your cells)⠀

Exercise is NOT One Size Fits All

Exercise is NOT one size fits all. Yes, I have my fitness guides, but I advertise them as general guides. I preach that they do not compare to personalized fitness, but I’m also aware that not everyone cares for personalized attention. But it’s important to note that exercise is something that should be done on a personal level. Because while our bodies are the same at their roots, life, genetics, and daily activities make your needs different compared to someone else’s needs.⠀

And please, don’t fall for the fit stars who hire people who don’t know what they’re doing to be your trainer, while they sit back and collect the bucks. Or the trainers that copy and paste programs from body building.com. Or even the ones that use the same “personalized” program for everyone.⠀

Do your HOMEWORK! and know that when you train with me on a personal level online or in person, you’re getting ME and 100% customized programs based on your goals and the results of your needs analysis.

Putting Movement First

When I talk about putting movement proficiency first, i mean being able to successfully execute the kinetic chain of an exercise. Did you know any of the following issues can put a damper on your movement execution:⠀
-excess or insufficient motor unit activation (typical offender for performing a movement incorrectly)⠀
-Inefficient fiber recruitment (typically leads to lost force output)⠀
-Lack of motor unit synchronicity (typically leads to a reduction in force output or speed)⠀

The good news is, this is all trainable.⠀
Want to improve your firing rate? Utilize both heavy and fast exercises to activate fast-twitch fibers⠀
Want to have better recruitment? Utilize activities that make the most of time-under-tension⠀
Want to improve synchronicity? Utilize rehearsal rills that replicate patterns and speed during specific plays or for life⠀
