How can stronger mean fitter?
Its easy to not see the relationship right?
‘Getting stronger makes you slower’
In the words of Churchill dog…
Oooohhh no no no no no
Here are THE FACTS from the geeky pages of science journals…
Runners, triathletes, football and rugby players (and many more)
Are shown to improve endurance performance in as little as 10 weeks…
When performing correct strength training
Think about when you move…
Your knee and hip joints take a pounding each time then hit the floor
The untrained, ‘unstrong’ have issues here…
Their joints are like Rowntrees jelly (other brands available)
They move so much on contact, energy ‘leaks’ from their body
Strength provides rigidity (try saying that, it’s a nitemare)
It means your joints stay stable, in the right positions
And the force your muscles produce doesn’t leak, it gets transferred back to the floor
And that’s when your fitness goes up a gear!
And there’s a cheeky little added benefit…
Less of this ‘leaking’ means less damage, wear and tear on your joints
A big reason to take training your pins seriously!
