Part 4: Forms Of Fitness Training

 

This article is part 3 in The Principles of Fitness article series, so if you have not read Part 3 on the Elements Of Exercise Programming by clicking here now.

 

Now that you understand the essential concepts of fitness training, I will go over the different types of training so that you can figure out which one is best for yourself and your fitness goals, as each training type is meant to accomplish a different state of physical fitness.  The more of these you use the better an athlete you will be, and so if you are training for general athleticism you would want to employ a mix of most of these different types at different times during the year.

The Principles Of Fitness

Part 2 – Basic Aspects Of Exercise

 

 

This article is part 2 in The Principles of Fitness article series, so if you have not read Part 1 – Essential Fitness Concepts yet, be sure to do so by clicking this link here now.

 

 

1 – Compound Exercises

 

Compound movements/exercises are exercises that engage multiple muscle groups, not just one.   So for instance doing a chinup engages most muscles of the back, as well as the rear delts (shoulders), biceps and even the chest.  Doing squats engages all of the muscles of the legs, and even a little bit of the lower back as well.  These are examples of compound exercises, as opposed to isolation exercises (explained below), and are superior to isolation exercises because compound exercises engage and work muscle groups together as they were naturally meant to be, give you the ability to do more work in one exercise, and create more anabolic hormones/processes in the body.

Delicious Vegetables That Require Minimal Cooking!

People who do not eat healthy are almost always doing so because of a lack of vegetables in their diet.  And the lack of vegetables in someone’s diet is often attributed to not having enough time for cooking them.  Usually people are under the impression that vegetables only taste good if they are part of complicated recipes where they are cooked with a lot of other ingredients for a long time in order to change their flavor, and that they do not taste good on their own with minimal cooking.  This however is certainly not the case, at least not for some types of vegetables.  I have many favorite vegetables that require minimal preparation/cooking, and little to no seasoning.  There are some that are delicious when just cooked right with a little salt, and take very little time or energy to make.  This would make them an easy side dish to supplement your main course if it is meat, and turn a meal that would otherwise not be very nutrient rich or healthy into one that is.  And some of these can even be substituted for meat and made into the main course themselves. Or because they are so quick and easy to make, they can be had as a snack anytime you need to give yourself a boost in energy.  Here I am going to teach you about every one of these vegetables and how you can make them so that you can integrate them into your diet without any hassle.

Understanding The Differences In Various Fitness Equipment

Are you just getting into fitness and don’t know what kind of equipment to use, because you don’t know what the differences are in the different types of equipment?  Well each type of equipment does have its own uniqueness and will exercise you slightly differently than doing the same type of exercise on a different piece of equipment.  So for instance: doing pushups, resistance band chest press, machine bench press, dumbbell bench press, and barbell bench press (all of the exercises that you will see pictured below) may all be essentially the same type of movement and exercise the same muscles, but they all do so in slightly different ways.  And each will have various pros and cons and trade offs between them.  It is important when getting started on your fitness journey to understand what these differences are so that you can choose to do the right exercises on the right pieces of equipment.  So here in this article I am going to go over the different types of exercise equipment and what exactly the pros and cons and trade offs of each are so that you can understand them fully and know exactly which ones to choose for your exercises.

The Complete 8 Facet Anti-Aging System To Stay Young And Healthy As You Grow Older

 

Everyone knows that there is nothing fun about getting older.  In fact it is a very painful process that not only robs us of our youthfulness and everything that made it good, but causes us to lose our strength and energy, our health, our attractiveness, and causes us great pain and suffering and greatly depletes our quality of life.  In fact some say that there is little reason to live for a long time because of the fact that the second half of your life isn’t very good at all, and can get quite bad for many people who have to deal with serious difficulties and physical disorders that old age causes.

Fitness Is Not Just About The Body, It’s About The Mind Too!

 

 

Emotions and Psychology in Athletics/Fitness (and Injuries)

 

 

Two weeks ago I sprained my ankle doing parkour, which was very painful, and set me back in my practice of it. It has been a rough experience mentally over these past 2 weeks since doing my parkour workouts has really been a large part of my lifestyle, and my personal identity. I has really made me realize just how much being an athlete is mental as well as physical, which is one of the reasons I chose parkour as my new sport in the first place. But I had not realized just how much emotion played into these things, as sometimes your mind and sense of self esteem is really put to the test in athletics, when facing failure and injury.

On Your Diet & How You Are What You Eat! (WARNING! READ THIS!)

 

 

You may have noticed that I place a certain emphasis here in True Life Development on diet.  You’ve probably seen the theme recurring as a focal point whenever I talk about health, which I talk about a lot.  And yet this is something that people often seem to miss!  No matter how much emphasis we health officials place on the food you put into your body…somehow the general population still misses out on the significance of our diet.  And this importance does not just go for health, but for all things personal development and success oriented!

Understanding The 6 Aspects Of Suffering

And How To End It

 

 

Many people turn to self help because of the fact that their lives are not what they want it to be…and they are oftentimes experiencing some form of suffering.  In fact this is the reason why Buddhism is one of the most popular and prosperous religions today (not that this is going to be a religious article).  The truth is that suffering is a huge part of life, and is something that everyone has to deal with at some time or another.  And (not) ironically it is something that motivates people to want to try to better themselves (so that they can put an end to their suffering).
