Exercising for life - The magic is in the synergy!
Synergy: the working together of two or more things, people,or organizations, especially when the result is greater thanthe sum of their individual effects or capabilities
Momentum toward your goals is generated when all componentsof fitness are incorporated into your workout program.
" Heart-through cardiovascular workout
" Skeletal muscle-through strength training
" Joints-through flexibility exercises.
" Good Nutrition-through balanced sensible eating.
Some exercise is better than no exercise; however, if yourprogram is lopsided with one or two of the same activities,you will not get the best results.
DRIVING THE CAR
Having synergy in your exercise program is like turning acar as you are driving down the road. It's much easier toturn the wheel while the car is moving rather than when itis sitting in your driveway. Momentum allows you to steerthe car, just as momentum allows you to continually progressin your workout program.
ROLLING THE SNOWBALL
Another example of having synergy in your workout programwould be rolling a snowball. Once the momentum has started,it keeps building and building. Keeping that in mind, it isvery easy to only do certain exercises that you like andthose that take less effort; however, because this will notwork, in the end you will end up having to workout harderand longer.
In a Nut Shell:
It is really important to have all areas of fitness workingtogether and in the most effective way possible. When allthe parts are working the machine works better. Leaving outparts of your exercise routine, just because you do not likethem, is asking for failure.
