Over the past 3 years, I have had a ton of conversations with a wide variety of people about the merits of exercise and how life-changing it can be. However, in each of these conversations, I am always surprised at the wide variety of approaches to exercise that people use. The conversation typically begins when I ask about their exercise routines, and what they do. Most people respond with "I run." Or "I do yoga." Or "I do group fitness classes." Or "I lift weights." (I think that that covers the most common answers!) However, the follow-up question is where the rubber meets the road. The question is, "Why? Why that type of exercise?" This question typically catches people off guard, and they have to think about their answer. Most people don't really think about why they do what they do. It is often the only thing that they feel comfortable doing, or what they have always done. In my opinion, those reasons ARE NOT GOOD ENOUGH.
When you chose to exercise you need to have a plan. No one can simply walk into the gym and just move aimlessly from one machine to the closest empty machine and still expect to see results. (Although WAY too many people do just that.) In the same vain, a runner cannot just begin a run without giving any thought to how far they want to run or how fast. Everyone NEEDS to know what they are going to do BEFORE they even start their warm-up. This cannot be stressed enough!
Let me ask you a question.
