WHAT IS A WORKOUT

Depending on the kind of goal we want to achieve, whether it is to lose fat and weight or increase muscle mass, increase endurance and stamina, strengthening certain muscle groups, progress, and improvement of some motor skills (flexibility, endurance, speed, …), is to lightweight recreational training or cardio purely for pleasure, we have various types of training, whether it be on the type of equipment, intensity or duration of the training.

Today we have a variety of different training titles. New names and brands for same kind of workout is very confusing. Essentially all boils down to the same, one type of training can be called on the 5 different modes. It is simply a branding and serious marketing in order to sell something and been on the agenda. I understand that today’s all is marketing and profit. But today we will call the facts with proper name, it is better.

The first very important thing is are you amateur, have you ever something seriously trained or what is your fitness level, and what you want to achieve. To say that, today’s training methods look like similar like gladiators is preparing for battle. It is OK, if you make money from wholesale as MMA fighters and Cross Fit athletes and you have sponsors and all the other things, then it makes sense. But if you are a recreational, difficult and strenuous training can later lead to Overtraining (OVERTRAINING OR PROGRESS ), or can cause serious injury. In the book SCIENCE OF FORCE shows clearly, strength and endurance should not train together, it said top experts and doctors, maybe it sound boring, but it makes sense.

The main thing for fitness and endurance is cardio training in combination with interval training, the muscle hypertrophy and increasing muscle mass is weights (split training) with sufficient intake of protein (up to 2 g of protein per kilogram of weight, per day), functional and circuit training to increase endurance and downloading fat and kilograms with an adequate relationship and entered calories spent days (you will not lose weight if you spend 500 calories per workout, so you come home and enter 1000 kcal), box combined with weights and strength training exercises is excellent for defining muscle with a mandatory removal of fat through diet , longer cardio training with uniform and moderate cardiac frequency is ideal for degradation of fat, short interval sprints in swimming, running, rowing – consumption of carbohydrates, high-frequency heart, rapid fatigue and short duration of activity – power, speed and explosiveness.

Call your training however you want or as it is more popularly known as May, but the basic thing is to break down what you want from a workout.  Ask professional staff, find out an inform on the right places. Monitoring online, you tube and group training for motivation can have a counter effect, you think you’re doing well and properly and you can endure the intensity, and perhaps is the opposite. Listen your body, body knows what is the best for you.
