• You’re not strong enough- Group Fitness Columbus

    get strong with improvement warrior fitness hilliard, oh
    I wanted to kick off the reasons you are not where you want to be in terms of your fitness and body with strength. It certainly isn’t the most important one of the bunch, but it is important. I will let you know when we are on the most important one. But as of right now, let’s get into strength.
    .
    A lot of people when they start off a program, like Improvement Warrior Fitness,  they think that because they were a big high school or collegiate athlete that that is them today. Or they think they need to keep up with the others in the class. NO- Stop right now. You need to know where you are right now.
    .
    I know a lot of people think that they are driving around in Ferrari body’s with Ferrari engines, able to perform at high speeds and high loads and look good while doing it. But people need to realize what you think is not often the case. 100% of people who start a fitness program are not a Ferrari, it’s more like they’re a Ford Focus. Not that I’m bashing the Focus, it just doesn’t have the capability or performance of a Ferrari. And let’s face it, some people are might just be at a 10 speed bike, other’s are a skate board, and some will just be a Big Wheel missing a wheel.
    .
    Lose the ego at the door. I didn’t get my level of fitness by doing stupid things above my level. I know my strength. Would I like to be able to squat 500 pounds- YES. Can I— NO.
    .
    If I go in and try to squat 500 pounds, I will get crushed. I doubt I can even squat down with, and it will probably result in an injury. And injury is something I want to avoid at all costs, because then all my progress is gone, and depending on how long it takes to recover I will lose a lot of my progress and maybe even all of it.
    .
    UNderstand strength is built over time. Progressive overload. Adding 1-2 or up to 5% at a time. Beginners will see a bigger increase at the start of training. More advanced trainees will only see slight gains, especially as you go on in your training career- which for every human being should be a lifetime. And I understand they’re may be limitations due to some type of permanent inury or disability, but it’s only a limitation- figure out a way around it and start working out. Not everybody’s workout is going to look the same!

    .
    Then, there are the people who do the same thing over and over again. Dong the same weight, same reps for months and years without any progress in both fitness level, strength level and the way they look.
    .
    Weight training is the number one way to change your body in regards to your metabolism, fat burning, and shaping your body. What you ladies like to call ‘tone’.
    .
    But fitness should always be a challenge. Once you get stronger you increase weight, or perform more reps in less time. If you stay at the same weight or same rep range, you stay the same. The body, just like the mind, needs constant challenge and improvement— stagnation is death. Stagnation is boredom. Life should not be boring and neither should your workouts.
    .
    Weight training is any type of resistance— dumbbell, barbell, kettlebell, your own bodyweight, resistance band, med ball, etc…… Lifting heavy is not going to make you big and bulky, especially if you are a women.

     It all depends on your training goals (coming soon) and your nutrition (coming soon).
    .
    Don’t take for granted your life. Get Strong! Be Strong! Stay Strong! Or simply stay the same. And in many cases, staying the same is in a state of decline, because they are always going to be people striving to get better, to get stronger— to be the Improvement Warrior!
    .
    Crank it up! Questions— ask. Share your thoughts below.

      Good morning Jason, I recently had an ankle injury and I have been off exercising for the last 3 months. What can I do to rehab my ankle and make it stronger.I don’t want to re injure it again

        what is the diagnosis? Would need to know that. I’m not really a rehab specialist. More on preventing injury and corrective exercise once everything is healed.
