Training this am in the cold but sunny, beautiful outdoors. Training full-body movements–with Kettlebells, Equalizer bars, and bodyweight.
In defining what I do, I would say that my interest is training the whole body, as much as possible, as a unit, for the purpose of health, aesthetics, and hate to use this overused word, but “functional” fitness.
Full-body training has a lot of advantages:
- 1. The movements are more natural, and therefore tend to be somewhat easier on the joints than isolated movements.
- 2. More efficient, quicker training.
- 3. Proportional development is simplified.
- 4. Fully body work brings in a cardio element, for those–like me–who hate long, boring cardio training.
- 5. The central nervous system gets a great workout.
- 6. Training outdoors (when possible) offers obvious benefits, such as sun and fresh air. It also tends to foster increased creativity in finding new, improved ways to train. Which brings me to #7…
- 7. FUN. Creativity is fun. Enough said.
