In training what is better fast or slow movement..? Largely it is relative to your purpose and outcome, therefore neither is better, only dependent on what you want to achieve. For most goals however you can achieve the same result with either tempo.
For example for weight loss, training at a slower pace can be a great way to achieve your goals and build your fitness at a rate that is safer. Training at a slower pace is also better for building and maintaining correct movement patterns. It can also be more meditative and help you to focus.
So what are the benefits of a faster speed training?
Depending on your goals, faster speeds can help to exert excess energy or stress and boost cardio levels, it can also help to boost your reaction time.
However the two can and do crossover you can get benefits from both types of training and both will help you improve fitness and lose weight/maintain a healthy weight.
Most importantly is to always listen to your body and be in touch with the needs of your own body and mind, and as always of course, enjoy your training 🙂🙏💫
Exercise after a prolonged illness/injury can be a bit scary for some. Not knowing the right things to do or worring that it may make things worse can be some of the main concerns.
From personal and professional experience I have found the following to be most helpful;
Have a firm faith and vision for your recovery- see how you want to be and work your way towards it step by step.
Listen to your body and stay empowered-work with your body and what’s within your control and measure your outcomes from there.
Support your exercise plan with adequate nutrition- just as important and sometimes more so is your diet, its essential that you get the right nutrients for your recovery. Do your research and get advice as needed.
Overall you must believe you can improve, believe you can and you will. This will empower you to take all the actions you need and maintain it.
Empower yourself within and results will come without 🙏💫
A lot of people before they start exercise feel they don’t have enough time. Here are 3 top reasons of how and why to find the time.
Make it a priority- Once it’s a priority you’ll find the time, book it in your diary like any other important appointments.
You’ll have more energy and more time – with regular exercise you’ll find you have more energy and be more efficient with your time.
Without health there’s not time for much else– it can sound a harsh truth but without our health we will struggle to do much else. Make it a priority before it has to be and reap all the benefits from doing so. Your health is 100% worthy of your time and effort.
What we value most we will always find the time for, therefore it makes the most sense to value something of such importance and then you’ll always find the time.
Hitting plateaus in training is inevitable and a regular occurrence when training consistently and regularly. Even where we are gradually progressing with techniques and rep range these can still occur. However there is always a way to overcome.
Here are 3 steps to help you overcome them.
The first thing is to recognise them and address them as quickly as possible, before becoming stagnant or bored. Then believe in your mind you can and will overcome this plateau, not allowing it to defeat you.
Then break the mould of your training and diversify a little, this is as important for your mind as well as your body as its important to feel free and joyful in your training.
Then listen to your body, feel what’s working and what isn’t and add or takeaway what you need. This also will apply to your diet as that can contribute significantly.
I hope you find these tips helpful and are able to apply where you need. Remember there is always a way. 💫
Most of all enjoy your training, stay happy and free 🙏🙂
‘There are no limits only plateaus and you must not stay there you must go beyond them‘
Finding balance in our lives is a constant re-adjustment. As we are always changing and life is always changing, how much we need to give or recieve in certain areas is always adjusting.
With this, our mindset has to readjust also and sometimes we may experience a lag. We may perceive that we need more than we do based on past experiences or give more than we need to for the same reason, or to strive for something that is not necessary for our lives.
In finding balance our bodies and minds are the best signal, if we are out of balance and giving too much in a certain area we will be certain to feel the symptoms, such as fatigue or stress and if left too long this can worsen.
The first step to finding or refinding our balance then is to listen to ourselves and the feedback our body is giving and then make the adjustments accordingly.
We may need to either reduce or increase certain activities to find our balance again.
Another helpful practice can be to sit down and reevaluate our goals and see what still fits with where we are now and where we want to be. As we grow and change our goals will naturally change and/or we can find a different path.
Lastly trust your inner self, your intuition above all, it will always guide you to what is right for you and the correct balance in your life.
