The Case for Vigorous Movement – For Those Not Motivated by Pure Vanity

The Case for Vigorous Movement – For Those Not Motivated by Pure Vanity

Swirl when you’re winning.

This is the monster article I mentioned a while back. I got inspired to write it after reading this 52 page research, Role of Inactivity in Chronic Diseases: Evolutionary Insight and Pathophysiological Mechanisms. A real page-turner. And heavily referenced in this article.

Here’s what to expect:

Part I is about the benefits of participating in frequent vigorous movement, beyond of the “to look good on Instagram”. Yes, for most people a part of training motivation is the vanity aspect. That’s cool. I am not above that. Honestly, it’s probably a bit weird if it’s not. Yet, if you are like me and motivated more than just owning a body you can rub in coconut oil, this is for you.

In the end of Part I I’ll cover how much of physical activity to aim for at minimum.

Part II dwells further into physical inactivity and how it relates to osteoporosis, cardiovascular health and mental health, among other nasty stuff. So if you want to know the specifics of why physical movement is the best thing ever, you’ll love Part II. In the same way you love Godfather Part II vs Part I. I mean, both are amazing.

What gives me the right to write about ways to improve life? I am 32 years of old and that doesn’t quite qualify me as a “wise old man” with all the answers. Yet I learn as I go and find importance in things. I only write about what I’ve tried. I only write about what works for me or my clients. My end goal still is to help as many people with their health as possible and I believe, better yet, I know that holistic approach on health will do more than just writing on about how many sets you should bench press or how many of your calories should come from organic Brussels sprouts.

To have a healthy body requires one to have a healthy mind and a balanced life. You can’t win in everything by just going harder. And that’s why I am on a quest trying to show you a better way. All that being said, this is what I believe and champion for:

Healthy mind = Healthy body.
You can’t have one without the other.

66 unconventional ways for exceptional fat loss, fitness and health

 

Search the Internet for how to lose fat and you are bound to get about million hits with everything from how to time your macros to which way to hold a fork when eating an egg.

Some of the points in this post are more philosophical and some are more practical. I first wrote hundred points but came to conclusion that the last thing we need is another post on the best protein sources and whether boiled potato has better nutritional value than a grilled sweet potato.

My reason for this post is to help you to build your own principles and rules to follow. From now on I want you to be indifferent and ignore the latest and craziest fitness trends that come and go. Learn to sit on your principles and watch the fools do the running.  Find what’s right for youLet’s begin.
