Most people that workout get caught in the vicious cycle of doing more and more each time, lift more and more each time, do more classes each time, spend more time on the elliptical or treadmill each time, etc.
Nothing could be more harmful to the body than pushing it beyond its limit until the day that it breaks. Take my word for it, your body will break under those conditions. I’ve been working out for 54 years and the reason why I haven’t quit is because I studied my limitations, researched what the side effects of every particular workout will do and adhered only to what will give me a better quality of life. The side effects to that have been excellent health, a good body, better recuperative powers and never having to worry about weight gain.
Incresead Period Of Positive Results During Fitness Workouts Or I.P.P.R.: A Period Of Time Where The Body Achieves Maximun Positive Phyisical Results From Steady Muscle Movement And Tension. ™ – Hector Sectzer
This period of I.P.P.R. usually lasts an average of 15 minutes. That 15-minute period of time is referred to as M.R.E.R. (The maximum results to effort ratio) Workouts that continue after that period of time cause the body to begin a downward spiraling effect with increasingly negative results to the body. In essence we are dealing with a very short “Window to Create Ultimate Physical Benefits”. So why spend hours working out in the gym?
Media hype has most of us going crazy about fitness and how difficult it is. We need a nutritionist or medical help just to eat food. We need trainers just to be able to perform physical activity. And we need psychiatrists to figure out why the whole thing just doesn’t work out the way we want it to…when in fact none of it was so difficult 50 years ago.
Changes took place when the fitness industry, the nutrition industry, the food supplement industry and the drug industry saw a way of making multi billions of dollars by keeping us confused, fat, depressed, angry and sick as long as they could.
