Have you ever wondered what method of training is best for you to fight off age, to prevent injuries, to maintain functionality, and to look fit and hard well into your elder years? Well if you really want to know then I guess I’m going to have to tell you. You have to know by now that exercise is the purest form of “preventative” maintenance. In other words, it is the best method of doing what is right in the “now” so you don’t have problems to fix later!
A common question that I get from people on a day to day basis is “what is the best way to train my body?” I often reply by asking them if they currently do anything to train their body. The truth is that it depends on your goals. However, the most efficient way to maintain the highest level of physical fitness and optimal human performance is to train our bodies through movement based exercise! Now when I say movement I don’t necessarily mean going out and running, even though this is fine to do.
What I mean is knowing how to utilize our bodies by functionally lifting against a resistance. This can be done many different ways and on many different levels. What happens by moving a load or resistance with your whole body is that you challenge yourself systemically rather than fatiguing out a specific muscle. The benefit of stimulating your “whole” body is that you stimulate your nervous system which is basically responsible for firing your muscles causing them to move and work in moving that specific load or resistance. This is why I am a fan of certain types of training like kettlebell training, sandbag training, and all free-weights. These forms of resistance programs all keep your body sharp like the fine constructed blade of a samurai sword!
So to beat off old age and to maintain the status of an incredibly built body utilize your ability of functional movement. This is what will keep you healthy and super-fit well into your elder years!
