There are so many myths and misconceptions regarding exercise and movement that we generally miss the most important value of each workout or even each individual movement.
As I said before the body is always trying to predict what it needs for the future and it takes your actions, not your thoughts, as a guide. This means that your daily movement is always the main guide your body uses to gauge what it needs to prepare for.
You need to be good at:
- managing energy sugar, fat, protein
- repairing damage
- sending and coordinating messages: good neurons and nerve structures
- strong bones.
Do you see the point. By putting your body, mind and soul through challenges (a workout) you tell your body that you need it to work well and keep everything maintained properly.
This is the reason that every single disease of affluence is actually related to the body not working properly. If you trace the benefits you get from moving and pushing yourself thorugh a workout you will find that you impro0ve each and every system that is related to or directly causes these diseases.
The reason, fit people are healthy. That is our common perception and assuming they aren’t over training and using good technique then this is the truth.
