We Know Training

Training is not a one-size-fits-all scenario. Your training routine might be light years apart from someone else, and that’s exactly what should be expected. After all, you are looking for observable results for you. That’s not going to happen by just ripping into a battle rope workout like the guy getting jacked up above. You need to follow a training routine that does everything possible to help you accomplish your goals, and that has your body type in mind.

Training is all about setting reasonable goals, and working toward accomplishing those goals. An overall realistic approach to training is a vital piece of the puzzle here, otherwise you’ll be stetting yourself up for disappointment or failure.

Anyone setting ambitious training goals needs to couple those goals with a healthy self awareness. Self awareness in both your physical and mental strengths and weaknesses is a tremendously helpful character trait to work on. Your goals are going to be better accomplished through a flexible approach that can adapt to any challenges you might face along the way.

What are you training for?

The way you answer this question will shape your training plans, but the degree of intensity and aggression is going to vary on a very wide scale. On the very intense and aggressive end of the spectrum, you might ask a question like Retired US Army Sergeant Major Pat Macnamara. “If I cloned myself yesterday, can I kick my clone’s ass tomorrow?”

On the other end of the scale you might focus on dynamic flexibility rather than intensity. You still build strength and muscle through exercises that lean heavily on stretching like yoga, pilates, and even climbing. Whatever goals you might have in mind, it’s vital to establish a plan and stay flexible enough to adjust that plan in order to reach those goals.

Getting Back In Shape

Training is going to vary depending on what you want to accomplish. Your training plans can go in any number of directions based on whether you’re quite overweight, or wanting to keep ahead of the aging process. Anyone weighing over 300-350lbs will need specialty equipment, and using gear like a heavy duty treadmill will help ensure your safety and overall equipment longevity. Something as simple as gaining a better sense of balance through regular use of a balance board might not seem to offer huge appeal at face value. But for those approaching their golden years, maintaining balance is vital in preventing injures from trips and falls.

Professional athletes and outdoor sports enthusiasts alike can see impressive performance gains from proper training. Maintaining muscle strength an coordination is a vital piece of nearly all athletic activities and fitness equipment that targets a wide range of muscle groups will offer the most bang for your buck. For example, you don’t need to be a mountain climber to see huge benefits from a vertical climber. These machines mimic a climbing motion while adding resistance and keeping your entire body in motion.
