As the saying goes. Without movement, not only do your muscles atrophy, but your health begins to decline, as movement is the key to keeping all systems (especially your lymph system) strong and healthy. But not just any activity will do. In order to get the results you want, you must follow a workout routine that is designed specifically for those outcomes and for YOUR body.
Despite the cardio craze that many people are caught up in, doing cardio is NOT the best way to lose fat. Having a well-designed program that is linked to your “Fitness Personality” as well as your “Genetic Predisposition” is crucial to getting results, so that you aren’t “spinning your wheels” without seeing results.
Your fitness personality is unique but there are some common categories of people.
While everyone exhibits all of these traits to some degree, typically you are more:
-----------> Driven & goal-oriented
----------->> Team oriented
----------->>> Adventurous and like to try many new things
----------->>>> Concerned about finding the right plan for you
By taking your fitness personality into account, as described in the R.A2.D. Triad, you can follow a fitness plan that will help you succeed in achieving your performance and physique goals.
A genetic predisposition refers to the fact that your body structure and your muscle fiber type are unique to YOU and affect the workouts that are most effective for you. If you are predominantly fast-twitch, you cannot effectively get the best results in your performance or physique by doing endurance training. Likewise, if you have predominantly slower-twitch muscle fibers, your program will need to be more endurance based in order for you to get the best results.
If your program is not offering you the results that you are looking for, consider that your training may not be ideal for your body type.
The R.A2.D. Triad combines the principles of Rest, Activity and Diet to help you form an individualized plan to achieve your goals by keeping in mind that you need a plan that is unique to your body and your lifestyle. A cookie-cutter approach will not give you the best results. Your plan is based on taking action steps in one or more of the categories above to help you balance out your Triad and give you a solid foundation for building the body and health that you desire.
