We get told there are things we have to do in regards to training, and in regards to specific goals it’s 100% accurate, however for general life it’s more like set of guidelines.
The goal of all life is death.
Well, avoiding it for as long as possible is what most desire.
To achieve this you need optimal health.
Does this necessarily mean you’ll be able to run a marathon, deadlift 3xBW or do 10 rounds in the ring with Tyson, no it probably doesn’t.
When it comes to your training do you ever ask yourself what is it you actually need to life a full and fruitful life?
Then I suppose that begs the question of if you want a long life (quantity) or a life filled with adventure, memories and learning (quality).
Once you know what it is that you desire, your training can reflect that.
In general life we can say that realistically we may need three type of strength – lifting, carrying, getting up.
As for CV, well the need is to be able to walk for extended periods of time, at potential pace without getting winded.
Pretty simple really.
You can achieve this many ways.
That being said, one of your life goals might be to have an epic physique, godly strength, skills galore or generally be an all round badass, if so then you’ll need to dial in some specifics.
There isn’t much we need to do in this life, especially fitness/training related.
Before you go down a rabbit hole be sure to ask yourself why you’d choose to go down it and what it will do for you in the long run that when you look back you can say without hesitation – “Totally worth it.”
Choose your path for you, otherwise you’ll end up going down someone else’s.
You should investigate this thoroughly.
