Rules Understanding Physical Activity and Overall Fitness
P.D.R: “The Point of Diminishing Returns:
“The point at which the body will no longer benefit positively from movement and tension and begins a negative spiraling effect.”
- Point Of Diminishing Returns:
- The body has a point in which it no longer benefits from “correct” strength training and becomes fatigued. For most of average individuals, that P.D.R. is 15 minutes. At that point, more damage is done to the muscle than the benefits of the exercise itself. Small and stabilizing muscles must be strengthened to be able to increase the P.D.R. range.
- For our lung capacity and strengthening of the heart we increase our tolerance to the exercises by increasing our cardio. While cardio has its benefits it also has its drawbacks.
- Cardio sweats out too many minerals out of your system.
- Cardio usually includes some sort of “impact” workout that damages your ligaments, tendons, and joints in your body.
- Elliptical equipment restricts the free movements of your lower body damaging the hips and irritating the sciatic nerve.
- Cardio takes too much of our time.
- Cardio wears down the body and affects good posture.
- When we get tired in a cardio workout, we cannot hold good form and posture and we create future damage to our body.
- The F.I.T.™ System created by the Healthy For You Company, includes Cardiomuscular™ and Pyrasetting™ fitness practices*. The F.I.T.™ training done correctly actually gives all the benefits to the muscle that cardio does to the heart and lungs without the possibility for injury.
- Additionally one side effect of the F.I.T.™ training program is that it actually lowers your heart rate and increases endurance.
- The F.I.T.™ System is 15 minutes long with no more than 3 to 5 pounds for beginners.
* CARDIOMUSCULAR™: Performing a series of consecutive strength training exercises for a period of time each without stopping using correct form, breathing and concentration.
* PYRASETTING™: Consecutively increasing the weight of a particular exercise until you reach maximum performing ability and then decreasing the weight slowly until there is no more weight to lift.
