If you really want to know the reason for our physiological development we can break down the true reason of our PHYSICAL nature into two basic tasks. The two main tasks that we are designed for in terms of our physical abilities involve doing work and to reproduce to preserve the race. Now I’m not a Darwinian, nor am I even trying to get into to that conversation, but we are going to look at how the human environment has changed over time in terms of its influence on our state of health and well-being.
You see if you read the history books and look at yester-year it doesn’t take a genius to figure out that we didn’t have H2 Hummers, Publix Grocery Stores, and the internet to get stuff done. Getting something to eat wasn’t as simple as driving down to the grocery to get a loaf of bread. You see man had to hunt for his food and women would handle a lot of the gathering of the goods. It was a team effort of high physical exertion, will, and determination. The human motivation then was survival and not worrying about whether or not your wife is going to be upset with you for getting real butter instead of the low-cholesterol stuff. It wasn’t driving to the grocery, it was more like trekking through the woods and spearing a deer. Back then there was probably not a lot of weight issues, heart disease, and size 0 dresses. It was all powerful physical human ability. Humans did physically what they were meant to do.
Now lets fast-forward to today. Life is still a challenge, but the challenges are different. We still have to hunt our food in a way, but not with a spear. We do it from behind a desk sitting at a cubicle to earn a check to pay for the food that was obtained for us. So we don’t have to necessarily hunt for the food, but in turn we have brought on a wide range of health issues from our bodies not being used properly. This is where true fitness is so important. It is a way to mimic the activities that we as a race used to engage in.
This is why we should try to achieve true fitness. Everyday is now a fight to not lose what we were originally blessed to do!
