...attack the plan! Most of the successful events of our lives were born from a simple idea or thought. It is the same for our fitness goals. After deciding on your goal it is helpful to put a plan into place. Doing so will help you achieve a positive outcome. Fitness is no different. It is good to quantify all aspects of your new goal(s). Exercise and nutrition both deserve equal attention when you begin to create your plan for success. How do you create a plan?
Greg Robins from Cressey Performance coined this term this morning in his blog. A increase in work (training) means you need to increase your recovery to see greater progress. Work does include all those outside stressors( family, lack of sleep, work). What does that mean for you? If you have a great training session but you return late from work and your child wakes up during the night ill, please take a extra day to recover. Your body will thank you.
Just let me get scientific for a momment. Ther are too types of muscle tone, 1. myogenic - which is what your muscles look like at rest. Either look 'soft' or 'dense' ie ripped. 2 Neurogenic- What you muscles look like when they are moving, like when your are flexing in front of the mirror.
So, to develop these two types of muscle tone, doing high reps with low weights so you can feel the burn is OUT. There is no science or reasearch behind that theory. Heavier weights and lower reptitions are IN.
