Day 32 - Train with a Purpose!

If you are a soccer player, you would train your legs and core and heart to be a better runner and kick the ball harder. If you are a gymnast, you train your flexibility and core strength, etc.

For average people who do not have a specific sport to train for, you should be training your body to become more functionally fit for everyday life. This includes core strength to improve posture, leg strength to climb stairs into your old age, arm strength to lift your kids and play with them. Don't just do something just because it looks cool or is the new fad, do it because it is going to improve your overall health.

For example, if you are a dad who coaches your sons soccer team and wishes to be more fit and active, going to the gym three days a week and spending 45mins of every hour doing ridiculous weight on the bench press and cranking out bicep curls may make your muscles grow a bit, but you are still going to be huffing and puffing trying to keep up with the kids!

Take that for example right there, kids do a little bit of everything, they run, they jump, they swing from trees, adults should take a hint...
