For truly effective
workouts, look no further than Mother
When it comes to effective workouts, who do you think knows more, human
beings or animals? Let me put the same question in a slightly different
way - Who do you think is healthier, your typical human being, or your
average animal? To ask the question is to answer it. Most people are
positively sickly compared to the strength and conditioning that almost
any animal possesses. So, let's say that you're looking for a strength
and conditioning program to get in shape, or at least in better shape.
Doesn't it make sense to observe and follow what animals do, as opposed
to human beings?
How do Animals Exercise?
And what kind of workouts do animals do? How does a single Gorilla get the
strength of six men?How does
a Tiger get the endurance and durability to roam over a domain of up to
100 square miles? Do they "pump iron" in a gym? Do they run all
day on a treadmill like an idiot? No, they don't do this or any of the
other 100 gimmicky ways (read - thighmaster) than foolish man with his
big brain uses to try and get healthy. Rather, animals get all of the
exercise that they need (and more than most people can handle) by using
their own bodyweight. This is all they need, and it's all you need to
Lean to work WITH Evolution
and our Natural-Selves
It actually makes sense from an evolutionary perspective. Through
natural selection, nature ensures that the healthiest animals live on
and procreate. The strongest survive. Take a bear as an example. This
means that if a bear simply does "Bear Things" (walking, climbing
trees, etc) it MUST be at it's healthiest and strongest. If there was a
better way for a bear to live, that way of living would dominate.
Training with their own bodyweight ensures that all animals are at
their absolute best. Doesn't this make sense?
Man is an Animal
The truth of the matter is that the same evolutionary forces that
shaped our animal brethren have been at work on ourselves too. Human
beings didn't evolve lifting weights or running on treadmills. We
evolved using our own bodyweight. This is why, in my mind, any exercise
system that utilizes your own bodyweight is a superior way to train.
This can involve bodyweight exercises (like pushups), isometrics
(self-resistance), yoga and many others. When you try these exercise
methods you'll soon discover that all you need to be healthy is YOU.
To be healthy, follow Nature's Lead
This website is dedicated to my firm belief that if you want an effective,
efficient workout to get in shape, look fantastic, and stay healthy,
all you need to do is look to nature. No matter what your present level
of fitness, age, or background, I think you will be able to find
something on this website to help you.
All the best,
