Fitness Tips For 11/20/2013
Do Free Weights or Machines
Stand and Deliver!
A lot of modern, popular training revolves around machines. The body
is often contorted into various positions, seated or prone, in many
of the machines. And while it is fine to get in some training in this
manner, it is a mistake to make all of your training off the ground.
Ground based training is vital for building a complete body. Those
who don't utilize ground based training can't reach their full
The very best exercises are not the ones that are easiest to perform
or which make you feel most comfortable (such as sinking down into a
nicely padded seat) but rather the exercise that push the body and
force it to fully develop. In spite of all the nice new machines and
various gadgets that keep coming onto the market, the best training
results still comes from is ground based training.
So why is ground based training so essential to development of the
human body? Virtually all sports and similar pursuits involve putting
the feet on the ground, with force. Many people train without having
their feet on the floor, or without having their feet on the ground
with force. So when they have to do so in real life, it is alien to
them. They have not trained in this manner, and come up short. You
perform based on how you practice so if you never practice with
ground based activity, you are unprepared.
When you are sitting on some thickly padded seat with your feet
dangling off the floor you are not obtaining any realistic action.
Top fitness guru Boyd Epley has noted that athletes need to have
their feet on the ground when they train. And he is right – it is
the quickest way to build up sport specific skill sets.
This carries over to the bodybuilder as well. What good is building
muscle if it isn't functional - if you can't use it? There is a lot
going on when an athlete trains, including the proper neuromuscular
coordination in the body (specifically multi joint action). This
won't happen on your typical machine. It is essential to get on the
ground to get your body into top gear.
Central to this issue is the fundamental fact that the body adapts
to the stimulus it is given. That goes for food and it is also true
for training. If the body is given a certain type of training, it
develops (or fails to develop) in a specific way. Ground based
training and non-ground based training are both training styles,
but only one makes the body adapt to a realistic scenario.
Often the guy in a typical gym workout gets no change of direction,
very little balance work, no prioproception action, and frequently
doesn't get far beyond a fixed stance or seated position. Ground
based training changes all of that, getting you actively working out
in a new way.
Ground based training doesn't have to be super fancy - things as
simple as the standing press, squats and deadlifts are a great start.
Start using the ground right away and get in total shape.
