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
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...
