Skipping the Gym

Lots of people sign up for gym memberships, but never actually go, and believe it or not, gyms don’t like that. The reality is that a gym member that never goes to the gym is pretty likely to cancel their membership. Some gyms compete with this trend by tricking members into signing long term contracts or by making it really difficult to cancel a membership (Bally Total Fitness makes you mail a cancelation letter to a P.O. Box in California). A big way a lot of gyms try to lure members in is with unique fitness classes designed (and named) more to get you in the door than to deliver actual results.

Fitness classes are successful at bringing people into gyms because they are social, fun, scheduled, and most importantly, directed. Let’s break these down below:

Muscle Imbalances

20110804-012304.jpg

Muscle imbalances are a major factor in many injuries, particularly for runners. Luckily, strength training is your best defense against muscle imbalances, as long as you follow a few basic principles.

Muscles surround your joints, providing support, stability, and control. A muscle imbalance occurs when a muscle on one side of your joint is stronger than its opposing muscle. This imbalance between a weak muscle and a strong muscle causes your body to overcompensate in ways that can cause injury.

Runners are particularly susceptible to a muscle imbalance between the hamstrings and the quadriceps, which can cause knee pain and strain the ACL. If you are training for a 5K, 10K, half, or full marathon, or just doing a lot of running as your cardio exercise this summer, it is very important to prevent muscle imbalances through strength training.

A proper strength training program will work opposing muscles equally, cartoon porn which can help prevent imbalances from developing in the first place. This is one of the reasons that it is so important to use a program for strength training, rather than just doing random exercises at the gym. While big biceps and pectoral muscles might be important to you, if you neglect your triceps and traps, you will likely develop muscle imbalances that increase the likelihood that you’ll get injured.

An injury can set your training program back days, weeks, or even months, making it very difficult to achieve your fitness goals. A little prevention can go a long way!

Strength Training Basics

Just to get this out of the way – everyone should strength train. Not just meatheads, not just body builders, not just guys, not just anyone. Everyone can benefit from strength training. In fact, you aren’t going to achieve your fitness goals without strength training. Any time you see any celebrity older than about 23 that still looks great, it’s because they strength train. That’s the bottom line, and its true for both men and women. So, if you want to get fit and you want to look great, you have to strength train.

OK. Now that we have that out of the way, here are the fundamentals of building a great strength training program:

Fixing the Fitness Industry

The Ab Lounge SportThere are a lot of fitness scams and sleazy gyms and trainers out there.  Watch TV past ten at night and you’ll see all black porn kinds products that claim to make you lose weight, get huge muscles, and look all around great just by doing a few crunches, electrocuting your abs for a few minutes each day, or mobile porn by simply using special soap.  The fitness industry is worth billions, so inevitably there are going to be people who try to squeeze out a pice of the industry for themselves without adding value. There are always going to be the Ab Lounges and Flex Belts of the world. We can’t do anything about that. What we can do is educate each other about how to properly build muscle and lose weight. You don’t have to know much about fitness to know that anything that promises miracle results won’t deliver them.  More… »
