Resistance is not Futile.

They say the Chuck Norris doesn’t do Push-ups instead, he pushes the earth down.

This is not actually possible of course, but it is a nice intro for my first post in 2017  under the topic of bodyweight training. A topic that I will focus on throughout the month of March.

You see, I think it is a fair assumption on my part that anybody who trains for the purpose of improving their health, physical appearance and general well being are using some form of resistance training, because resistance training is the only natural way to change the shape, size, strength and endurance of your muscles. Simply put when a certain movement is made more difficult to do as a result of some kind of resistance that acts directly opposite to the direction of the movement and is repeated up to the point where the movement can’t be completed without having to rest, resistance training is achieved.

HIIT it as hard as you can.(Video)

When it comes to doing a home workout effectively, the only measure to go by is the amount of work that gets done. The term work is used to describe “moving a weight over a distance” and the SI unit of work is joule (J), which is defined as the amount of work required to move an object over a distance. This measure of work- Joule, can be converted to Calories. As we all know, Calories being the well-known measure of the energy we get from food, as well as the energy expended in the workouts we do as well as our daily activities, it’s therefore directly related to the amount of work completed during our workouts.
