The WORKOUT = The STIMULUS for the body to respond to.
3 stimuli that cause adaptation in the organism:
- Mechanical Tension
- Muscle damage
- Metabolic Stress
The workout does NOT directly produce the results but is a stress on the body.
Catabolic- breakdown of larger molecule to smaller to provide energy to the body.
So, How do we get to these results?
YOU, the organism, directly produce the result after responding to the stress of a workout.
Here are the steps necessary to see RESULTS:
SLEEP, NUTRITION, RELAXATION
You are Anabolic (the state in which your body builds and repairs tissues) when you are following the three above steps.
Do you want Results such as these?
Improved body composition
Enhanced resistance to injury
Enhanced bone density
Enhanced connective tissue resilience
Enhanced metabolic health/ conditioning
You need an effective stimulus such as HIT and then sufficient recovery.
