Specializing in General Physical Preparedness

A great way to choose workouts is to base them on functional movements. Use core movements from life, found everywhere, that are built naturally into our DNA.  Squatting (sitting on the sofa), picking an object off the ground (luggage or pets), and lifting something overhead (playing with kids or putting away groceries) are movements found over and over in daily life. Think of the improvement in quality-of-life if those became less strenuous and instead went back to being as easy as they were ten, twenty, or thirty years ago. Variety is preferred, but focusing on those three basic movement patterns can be a great foundation.

Training for improvement in the following ten domains of fitness yields the best results. Work on: Endurance, Stamina, Strength, Speed, Power, Flexibility, Agility, Accuracy, Balance, and Coordination to establish the best base for general physical preparedness. The focused pursuit of any one of these domains is done at the expense of the other nine and so on.  Running does tremendous good for endurance and stamina, but it can be detrimental to power and flexibility, for example. Conversely, heavy lifting only will make someone very good at one thing – heavy lifting, with little to no improvement anywhere else.

There is nothing wrong with running or heavy lifting, both are among the quickest, safest ways to reach fitness goals, but they are better executed together in a program where form is scrutinized and a plan is in place. Too often, fitness routines are just that – routines that are repeated.  A better pursuit is activities that require some work in all ten domains in a variety of ways.
