I have always been impressed by Wittgenstein's Tractatus. 7 propositions stating the whole of his philosophy. Each except the last elucidated by some others.
Could I do that about fitness training?
Can it all be kept simple? A series of simple propositions?
So much of the fitness blogosphere thrives on complexity, jargon. Can we just make it clear and simple?
Maybe not 7 propositions but certainly just a few key ideas.
What will be in the mix?
- The goal is max fibre recruitment; the exercises, the protocol is secondary to this.
- There is no such thing as cardio.
- Much of what we call fitness is skill.
- Safety is fundamental.
- Posture has a role. Poor posture can mean less efficient movement and more wear and tear.
- Sleep...just sleep
- Eat appropriate quantity, optimum quality and suitable composition.
- Stress needs managed.
Do you see where I am going with this?
Update - by the way, this is in no way an exhaustive list, just somethings that were going through my mind last night. Also I had a reread of Hillfit and think that I actually articulated some of this pretty well in there, it is just that I wrote that about 8 months ago and have forgotten a lot of what I presented.
