Teresa was just now telling me about a lady who told her that she could leg press like 300 lbs. Pretty impressive, right?
Maybe. This lady can't do a push-up.
So does a 300 lb leg press mean you are fit?
What if you can run a 5 minute mile but can't bench press 100 lbs? Is a 5 minute miler more fit than a guy who can only run 9 minutes for a mile...but can bench press 400 lbs.
I think it speaks to the essence of REAL FITNESS.
I would even argue that part of what is wrong with the health in our country is that we don't actually focus on true fitness.
In other words we place importance on singular exercises and numbers when we really need to place value on being fit.
The goal of today's post is again to get you thinking.
Ask yourself these 3 questions:
1. Are you happy with the way you look and the way you feel?
2. Are you focussing one one aspect of fitness? (i.e running or power lifting)
3. Are you you willing to make changes in your fitness plan?
If you said "no" to either #1 or #2 then #3 better be "YES".
It's as simple as that. If you focus on one thing you will not get great results long term.
The message for today may help you if you are wanting better levels of fitness but struggling.
It could be what you are doing.
